I'm in a CI environment using VSTS and I want to get the commit comment to set him into a text file.
Here are my build step :
The idea is to copy the GIT commit comment into a text file stored in the artifact folder. Then with the HockeyApp SDK, i'll set my commit comment in the relase note.
I can easily copy the file with a command line operation, but I do not know how the retrieve the comment.
The environment variable
$(Build.SOURCEVERSIONMESSAGE) is set during build. You can access it using
$(build.SOURCEVERSIONMESSAGE) directly in your task inputs.
If you want to access it in a powershell script or inline powershell script. You can access it via the environment variable i.e.
The following script will create a new file commit.txt in the binaries folder with commit message in it. Run the script using the Powershell task with inline Type.
$message = (Get-Item Env:\BUILD_SOURCEVERSIONMESSAGE) $path = (Get-Item Env:\BUILD_BINARIESDIRECTORY).Value + '\commit.txt' echo $message > $path
