Exit status in a post command build


Fran Burgos (12312352) | asked Aug 13 '15, 4:05 a.m.
How can I get the return code in a post command build?

I have the following post commands in a build definition:

echo "Hello"
echo $?

But $? returns: ? and it should returns 0 because echo "Hello" finished OK. How can I get that status code or what other way exists for getting the status code from echo "Hello"?

Have you tested the script separately? Are you running the script on Linux or Windows? The below commands work for me in a standalone script.
Linux:
echo "Hello"
echo $
Windows:
ECHO "Hello"
ECHO %ERRORLEVEL%
