decided to spin off a new thread of my own. scope of the problem is creating artifacts via yml when
1. the publish_xx are commented out or disabled
2. artifacts are defined

anything wrong with my settings?

on_finish has a "dir" cmd that doesn't indicate that the files/folders were created


- Minimal appveyor.yml file is an empty file. All sections are optional.

- Indent each level of configuration with 2 spaces. Do not use tabs!

- All section names are case-sensitive.

- Section names should be unique on each level.


general configuration


version format

version: 1.0.{build}

branches to build

# whitelist only: - master

Do not build on tags (GitHub only)

skip_tags: true


environment configuration


Operating system (build VM template)

os: Windows Server 2012


build configuration


build platform, i.e. x86, x64, Any CPU. This setting is optional.

platform: Any CPU

build Configuration, i.e. Debug, Release, etc.

configuration: Debug

project: trunk/GetBack.sln

publish_wap: true # package Web Application Projects (WAP) for Web Deploy

publish_wap_xcopy: true # package Web Application Projects (WAP) for XCopy deployment


tests configuration


assemblies: - '***.Unit.dll'


artifacts configuration


# pushing a single file with environment variable in path and "Deployment name" specified - path: 'deployments\' name: 'GetBack.UI.Website'

  • path: 'deployments\' name: 'GetBack.UI.Admin'


cache configuration

#---------------------------------# cache:
- 'trunk/packages' # preserve "packages" directory in the root of build folder

- dir

- dir deployments\$(configuration)

    It should be either publish_wap or publish_wap_xcopy. If there are any Web Application Projects in GetBack.sln solution they should be automatically published and pushed to artifacts. If you see nothing on "Artifacts" tab of build details then it means solution doesn't include any WAP (or AV hasn't detected them which is also possible); otherwise you should get some error in the build log.

    Re: adding artifacts with artifacts section - how do you build both deployments\ and deployments\ packages?

    Checking deployments\$(configuration) folder on on_finish looks weird to me as artifacts paths do not contain release.
