Simplify Build Configuration with Matrix Builds

November 30, 2023
TeamCity 2023.11 streamlines cross-configuration testing by dynamically generating separate builds with varying configuration parameters.

TeamCity is a versatile CI/CD tool that empowers teams to implement seamless continuous integration, continuous delivery, and continuous deployment within their DevOps workflows.

TeamCity Version 2023.11 introduces Matrix Builds, a dynamic build system that generates separate builds based on varying configuration parameters. Each unique parameter combination triggers a distinct build configuration, forming a matrix of individual builds that run independently.

Matrix Builds are particularly advantageous for testing software across diverse configurations, such as operating systems or browser versions. By defining a matrix of build configurations, you can execute the same test suite across multiple parameter combinations within a single build configuration, streamlining the review process and facilitating the resolution of compatibility issues.
