Workflow Activities
Last updated Jul 19, 2024



The Build activity compiles the code into a NuGet package. The project referenced by the project.json is packaged into a NuGet package with the version set to the version parameter. The resulting .nupkg is saved in the local robot runtime folder. It is typically placed inside the Stage Activity.

Project compatibility

Windows | Cross-platform


There is a compatibility requirement between the automation projects you intend to build and the machine that runs the pipeline process.

The correct mapping is:

  • Windows-Legacy project → Build OS: Windows only
  • Windows project→ Build OS: Windows only
  • Cross-Platform project→ Build OS: Windows or Linux

  • Repository URL - (Optional) The remote repository URL of the project.json file.
  • Repository brach - (Optional) The source branch for the package.

  • Repository commit - (Optional) The commit ID (the commit SHA for git repositories).

  • Include sources - (Optional) Sets whether the automation source code is packed as well. Default value is False.

  • Skip validation - (Optional) Skips project validation. The default value is Off (the validation is performed).


  • NuGet Package path - The absolute path to the built package. Typically used to be passed to other activities such as .
