I would like Xamarin projects also to be built in builds triggered by pull requests.
I see secure environment variables are disabled for such builds.
Is it possible to register the Xamarin license for these builds?
Exposing the password is of course not an option :-)

    If it's private project/repo you can "Enable secure variables for PR builds".

    Other than that the problem is interesting indeed and we should give it a thought. I added a new issue:

    Yes, please give it a thought! It would be great if we could set the Xamarin license and enable Android/iOS from the AppVeyor portal!
    I worked around the problem by using "IF DEFINED xamarin_password appveyor RegisterXamarinLicense..." and building a different solution for pull requests:
    But this means we may get Xamarin build surprises after a PR has been merged...
