Build Management Excel reports

Build Management Excel reports are used to track how source files get changed throughout the iteration and how strong the source code is while its being tested. These reports are represented on the Build dashboard on the SharePoint site that is associated with the team's project portal.

The Build dashboard is specifically used to analyze development activities that impact the quality of the builds. When builds are not successfully completed or aren't passing Build Verification Tests (BVT), the team must resolve the problem instantly.

In order to have accurate reports for build management, team members need to complete the following activities:

  • Configuring the build system

  • Creating the build definitions

  • Defining the tests to run automatically as part of the build

  • Configuring the tests to gather code coverage data

  • Running the builds regularly
