VSTS build monitoring

CatLight can monitor VSTS builds and show them on the dynamic dashboard. It supports Team Builds and XAML build definitions from TFS 2015-2018.

Personalized build monitoring

Each member of your team can have the CatLight app that will run on his computer. He can configure the app to monitor specific VSTS builds that are important for him.

When a build status changes, CatLight will change the color of the tray icon and show a notification alert on the desktop. CatLight successful build status notificaion

Build Investigations

When a build is broken, CatLight will alert the whole team, and anyone can press the "I will investigate" button on the dashboard. CatLight will then notify the team that somebody is looking at the build.

Git branches and pull requests

See a separate build history for each Git branch and pull request. You can choose between monitoring all branches or just your own. CatLight will monitor only active branches to keep your dashboard neat and clean.

Monitoring gated check-ins

CatLight will tell you when your gated build is completed, and changes are ready to be checked in. You can choose what type of notifications you want to see in the settings.

Build time estimation

For long-running builds, CatLight will show an estimated time of VSTS build completion in a notification. You can also see it on the dashboard. The estimation is based on the duration of the previous successful build.

Multiple accounts

CatLight can connect to multiple VisualStudio.com accounts. You can use a different credentials for each account, if needed. You don't need to tell us your password. The app will be authorized using the Microsoft account that is currently signed in. CatLight will have limited access to your project − only to builds and work items, but not to the source code.
