TeamCity 2019.1 Help

.NET CLI (dotnet)

TeamCity comes with the built-in support of the .NET CLI toolchain providing .NET CLI (dotnet) build steps, CLI detection on the build agents, and autodiscovery of build steps in your repository.

This page provides details on configuring the .NET CLI (dotnet) runner. Also see the related blog post.

Requirements

.NET Core SDK must be installed on your build agent machines.

TeamCity searches for the .NET executable files in the following order:

  1. In the directory defined in the environment variable DOTNET_HOME for a TeamCity agent. For example, DOTNET_HOME=D:\SDK\dotnet\.

  2. In the default directory for the .NET executable file:

  • Windows: C:\Program Files\dotnet or C:\Program Files (x86)\dotnet, or other default program files directory (depending on the environment variable ProgramW6432)

  • Unix: /usr/share/dotnet

  • Mac: /usr/local/share/dotnet

  1. In paths specified in the PATH environment variable.

TeamCity will use the first .NET version it finds. If you have several .NET versions installed, we recommend that you specify the most recent version in the DOTNET_HOME variable.
