What does "Package .NET Core console projects" actually do?

I'm trying to work out how to build .net core console apps, and I would have thought the "package .net core console projects" would do the trick. But it doesn't seem to do anything and doesn't really give any options I'm expecting.

So, to build a console app, I'm thinking I need to do everything manually and "after build" use donet publish, then zip it up all the assets and then use that as the artifact?

    You are right that it isn't working at the moment. This is a recently discovered regression that we are currently working on.
    You can run dotnet publish manually for now until it is fixed. If you do so, you don't need to zip it. You can just point to the appropriate folder from the publish command in artifacts section.
