Prerequisite: The job-id stays constant at all builds

Problem: The Job-name may become very long (e.g:Environment: APPVEYOR_BUILD_WORKER_IMAGE=Visual Studio 2017, generator=Visual Studio 15 2017 Win64; Configuration: Release)

Solution: To generate the permalink to the build it would be great, if i could write the job-id instead of the job-name for the generated job. Much more handy and way easier. Additionaly, you could message the job-id in the current-build information Link to permanent links

    Hi Benedict,

    It actually exists :) If you check link to the artifact in UI, you can find that it is<job-id>/artifacts/<filename>.

    You can get job id from APPVEYOR_JOB_ID environment variable.

    Better yet, notification template has[].artifacts.permalink element. And you can use notification template with any king of notification, by customizing it.

    Hope this helps.
