I have a number of Teamcity Agents, some in a remote location.
Both locations have a default app server instance to test clients against, but we also have some experimental app servers that only run here.
Developers wanting an experimental server set the build parameter
experimental.server=SOMETHING to tell the test script to use that. The trouble is, they also have to select the local build pool to get a local agent in the
Run... dialogue, and that's easy to forget (which is why creating a full set of duplicate build types doesn't work either).
Is there a way to set an Agent Requirement on the buildtypes to send tests wanting experimental servers only to local agents?
I know builds can have requirements for JAVA=1.7 or JAVA=.* to select those with the right, or with any, SDK.
But it seems like I need to set a remote agent's property to '^$' and a local agent's property to '.*', and make Teamcity only use remote agents if the build property
experimental.server matches the regex in the agent's
Is that possible?
