Investigating Build Problems

If you believe that your changes caused a build failure, you can start investigating the problem and inform other team members about that. You can also assign another team member as an investigator of the problem.

To start build problem investigation

  1. In the left pane of the Projects tab of the TeamCity tool window, right-click a failed build and select Investigate from the context menu.
  2. In the Investigate dialog box that opens, do the following:
    • From the Users list, select me if you believe that your changes caused a build failure, or select a team member that is supposed to be responsible for the build failure.

    • Under Comment, type an optional comment.

    • Click OK.

You can also start an investigation or change its status from the TeamCity server web UI. Learn more.
