I scheduled a Visual Studio build via Azure DevOps, which failed. I want to open the file structure and run some tests manually to see exactly what is wrong.

I cannot find anyway to see where this build lives on disk. I know the build Id and I have retained the build, but the file structure in our build location doesn't seem to bear any resemblance. I thought there would be a button or at least a log saying exactly where the files are, is this not the case?

  • I'm quite unsure how the build process is implemented in Azure DevOps, but it might be that every step is executed in a container. Means no build result lives on disk once container is gone. Result is passed from a build step to the next one, from container to a container. – Michael Chudinov Mar 10 at 23:43
