Multiple build configurations taking long time

Hi, I was wondering something.

We have a ASP.NET MVC 5 project with multiple Web.config files. One for each environment, like hotfix, development and production. These config files have different environment variables. And because of this, multiple builds are created for each new PR created.

Is there a way to reduce the number of builds? Considering the source code is exactly the same, it's just the environment variables from the web.config files that are different, it seems unneccessary with that many builds. I'm rather new to the whole DevOps, so I'm not really sure what to do. Thanks :)

    Hi Thomas,

    You can just use your own build commands and build all configurations in the same build job, kind of:

    - msbuild your-solution.sln /p:Configuration=testbox /p:OutputPath=out\testbox
    - msbuild your-solution.sln /p:Configuration=testbox-batch /p:OutputPath=out\testbox-batch

    And then upload produced files/folders to artifacts like described here:
