The Inspections (ReSharper) build runner allows you to use the benefits of the JetBrains ReSharper code quality analysis feature right in TeamCity, with the help of the bundled JetBrains ReSharper Command Line Tools. You can use the tools within TeamCity without any additional ReSharper license.
Find probable bugs
Eliminate errors and code smells
Detect performance issues
Improve the code structure and maintainability
Ensure the code conforms to guidelines, standards and specifications
ReSharper command line tools 2018.2 or newer require .NET Framework 4.6.1 or newer.
If you want to run ReSharper inspections using a specific ReSharper version (for example, to ensure it matches the version you have installed in Visual Studio), you can install another version of the tools and change the default version to be used on the Administration | Tools page. This page contains reference information about the Inspections (.NET) build runner's fields.
You can also refer to the ReSharper documentation for more details.
Refer to Configuring Build Steps for a description of common build steps' settings. Refer to Docker Wrapper to learn how you can run this step inside a Docker container.

Build Failure Conditions
If a build has too many inspection errors or warnings, you can configure it to fail by setting a build failure condition.
Build before analyze
In order to have adequate inspections' execution results, you may need to build your solution before running analysis. This pre-step is especially actual when you use (implicitly or explicitly) code generation in your project.
Bundled ReSharper Versions
You can view the installed versions of ReSharper on the Server Administration | Tools page. The bundled version is set as default; you can install other versions and change the default settings.
