Supported Platforms and Environments
Platforms (Operating Systems)
The TeamCity Agent is a standalone Java application. TeamCity Cloud supports two types of agents:
Hosted by JetBrains
Hosted by a customer
You can combine agents of both types in your installation. Read more information on licensing these agents in Subscription and Licensing.
These agents are automatically maintained by JetBrains and don't require to be installed or configured by a customer. There are multiple types of these agents:
Each JetBrains-hosted agent comes with a set of preinstalled software.
Software preinstalled on Windows agents:
|JDK||11.0.10_9, 8.272.10.3, 188.8.131.52.1|
|Ruby||184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124|
Software preinstalled on Ubuntu agents:
You can install a build agent locally on your machine, similarly to how you would do it in TeamCity On-Premises, and connect it to the TeamCity Cloud instance. Note that you need to acquire a concurrent build slot for each self-hosted agent.
Build agents require a Java SE JRE installation to run. See notes on how to configure Java on agents.
Supported Java versions are OpenJDK and Oracle Java 8 - 11. We recommend using the latest available version of JDK. Support for running agents under Java 1.6 and 1.7 is deprecated.
The TeamCity agent is tested under the following operating systems:
Windows Server 2003/2008, 2012, 2016, 2019
Server Core installation of Windows Server 2016
Reportedly works on:
Windows XP/XP x64
Windows 2000 (interactive mode only)
Windows Tray Notifier
Windows 7/7x64/10 with one of the supported versions of Internet Explorer.
The TeamCity Web Interface is mostly W3C-compliant, so just about any modern browser should work well with TeamCity. The following browsers have been specifically tested and reported to work correctly in the recent versions of:
Safari under Mac
