Recently, I wanted to generate report of all the builds happening on my system. I came up with a very simple solution using Powershell script.
If you look at the CC.Net directory structure, you can find that all the project specific logs are kept at <CC.Net>server<project-name>ArtifactsBuildLogs (in Default config)
So, if you have a project named MyFirstProject…
it will be in the <CC.Net>serverMyFirstProjectArtifactsBuildLogs
further the log files names also follow a pattern
for example, take this:
this consists of log+<year>+<month>+<day>+<hour>+<min>+<sec>+LBuild.<build-label>.xml, so from the file name above, we can know that:
Year = 2010, month = 11, day= 25; hour = 11, min = 52, sec = 43.
If build had failed, then the file name changes to :
log+<year>+<month>+<day>+<hour>+<min>+<sec>.xml, that is the Build-Label is missing.
So I quickly wrote this powershell script, which spits out results as CSV.
Project Name, Date of Build, Build-Label, Status
Hmm… Powershell is really powerful 🙂
