Build Agents

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.

JetBrains-Hosted Agents

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:

Instance Type


Linux (small)

  • CPU: 2 vCPU (Intel Xeon (Cascade Lake))

  • RAM: 4 Gb ram

  • SSD: 20 Gb

Linux (medium)

  • CPU: 4 vCPU (Intel Xeon (Cascade Lake))

  • RAM: 8 Gb ram

  • SSD: 20 Gb

Windows (medium)

  • CPU: 4 vCPU (Intel Xeon (Cascade Lake))

  • RAM: 8 Gb ram

  • SSD: 20 Gb

Each JetBrains-hosted agent comes with a set of preinstalled software.

Software preinstalled on Windows agents:

AWS CLI2.1.26
WiX Toolset3.11.2
Docker Compose1.28.2
Ruby2 DevKit4.7.2.2013022403

Software preinstalled on Ubuntu agents:

Git LFS2.13.3
Docker CLI20.10.6
Docker Compose1.28.0
AWS CLI1.18.69
Android SDK6858069

Self-Hosted 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:

  • Linux

  • macOS

  • Windows 7/7x64

  • Windows 10

  • Windows Server 2003/2008, 2012, 2016, 2019
