Schedule a job from the build parameters instead of setting up a trigger


I have a build config that is set up to deploy to a particular VM on a weekly schedule.

This weekend I want to deploy it to the normal VM but also to another one.

I can change the host in the Parameters if I do a custom Run but I can't seem to make the custom build run at a specified point in the future.

This is similar to this old stackoverflow question

The only way I can see how to do it right now is to duplicate the build config, modify the parameters and add a schedule trigger then delete it on Monday.

Or come into work on Sunday night!

Hello Johnny,

We have the related request in our issue tracker:, please vote for it.

As current workaround you can trigger a build with needed parameters using REST API and then use the logic in a cron job or from another scheduled-triggered TeamCity build.
