Is there a way to publish a link to another build result

Kevin Lou (311925) | asked Apr 12 '13, 3:18 p.m.
 I am trying to design a special "build" that is to copy the build artifacts of another build to a specified location (I am able to locate the build artifacts on the build server with the name of the build definition and the build label). I can also get the buildResultUUID of that build by retrieving the information from in the same folder. However, I can't figure out how to put a link on the (new) build result so when I click it, it bring me to the (old) build result. This way I am easy to make them connected. 

So, my question is, is there a way in the build result to publish a link to another build result? If so, how to do it? (I know I can generate a URL but I prefer to have a link for the RTC Client)

You can use the linkPublisher Ant task to publish a link with URL:  https://RTC_HOST:PORT/ccm/resource/itemOid/

 Will this open the build result in the (embedded) browser? Is there a way to just open it in the RTC client - like when I double click the build result from the list)?

 Never mind, I have verified that it does open the build results within RTC client. Thanks a lot!
