Hi There,
I am trying to fail my build in below project

I am using the below command. When I try locally it works as usual. But from the AppVeyor it is not failing. There is only a message saying"has a line coverage '92.9%' below specified threshold '100%'"

dotnet test "DotNet.Helpers.Tests\DotNet.Helpers.Tests.csproj" /p:CollectCoverage=true /p:CoverletOutputFormat=opencover /p:Threshold=100 /p:ThresholdType=line --configuration Debug --no-build

This issue seems there in Azure DevOps too. There they use a Task but not sure how to get the same working in AppVeyor

I appreciate any help with this.

    I was able to fail the build on low coverage by manually failing it.
