Not picking up xUnit tests

All projects are built successfully, but AppVeyor is unable to find the tests automatically:

Discovering tests...OK
Build success

The test projects don't directly reference xunit as all the test dependencies are part of a Directory.Build.props file further up in the directory hierarchy:


    <PackageReference Include="Microsoft.NET.Test.Sdk" Version="15.9.0" />
    <PackageReference Include="xunit" Version="2.4.1" />
    <PackageReference Include="xunit.runner.visualstudio" Version="2.4.1" />

    <PackageReference Include="Microsoft.AspNetCore.App" />
    <PackageReference Include="Microsoft.AspNetCore.TestHost" Version="2.2.0" />

The test projects themselves are prettey simple:

<Project Sdk="Microsoft.NET.Sdk">
    <ProjectReference Include="..\..\src\ProblemDetails\ProblemDetails.csproj" />

Is this not a supported scenario? Do I have to copy over the dependencies into each project file for AppVeyor to detect unit test projects?

    Yeah, right now we are looking for direct references in project files. Please watch for the fix. For now you can add references just to make AppVeyor recognize test projects or (clear approach), use test script mode and call dotnet test with appropriate switches.
