I added %teamcity.build.branch% in the TeamCity project template we use to push built solutions to Octopus and create a new release. It worked fine for the project I’d just placed under version control.
The description in Team City says it is ignored for non-version controlled projects:
However the build failed as the Create Octopus Release step errored with:
Since the provided project is not a version controlled project, the --gitCommit and --gitRef arguments are not supported for this command.
I can override this on a project-by-project basis as we convert the Octopus deployment processes to config-as-code, but it would be much simpler if it did what it says and ignored it on the non-versioned projects.
I wasn’t sure whether to put this thread under the Octopus Server or Integration topic - feel free to move it if it’s in the wrong place.
