How to automatically create/modify Build Definitions?

Rafael Rezende (431723) | asked Apr 15 '15, 5:41 a.m.
We have a dynamic build flow with several builds running for different variants. We use RTC + Jenkins, that means we have a 1:1 mapping between Build Definitions and Jenkins jobs.
Some departments have hundreds of different builds and we are even studying the possibility of creating the complete build pipeline from a template on demand. For both use cases, the possibility of handling the Build Definitions via CLI, Ant, scripts etc (any automation-friendly way) would be quite handy.
Is there any way to handle BD other than the GUI of the RTC Client?

Note: RTC API seems to be an option, but we are interested to know if there is something ready to work out-of-the-box, less error prone.

As far as I know there is nothing out there readily available. I would suggest to try the API. Here are some API examples: unfortunately none for Build Definitions, I think.
