Requesting builds

You can request a build in the web client. You can also change build properties or request a personal build that does not impact the build definition status and that runs on a workspace that you specify.

Procedure

  1. In the Web client, in a project area, click Builds; then click Build Definitions.
  2. On the Build Definitions page, click a build definition.
  3. On the build definition page, in the upper-right corner, click the Request Build icon.
  4. Optional: To request a personal build that does not impact the build definition status and that runs on a repository workspace that you specify, in the Build Options area, select Personal Build. If required, update the Repository workspace field.
    Note: Personal builds are only available when the build definition editor has Engineering Workflow Management source control configured. Personal builds do not accept incoming changes, even if the option to accept incoming changes is enabled in the build definition.
  5. Optional: To change build properties, double click the build name in the Properties field. Edit fields on the Edit Build Property window to update the build property names and values in the list, or use the Add button or Remove button to add or remove properties.
    Note: You cannot change required build properties. You specify required build properties when you define a build.
  6. Click Submit.
