Build Status Badge for TFS 2015 and VSO

A while back I wrote a post about how we can create a build bagde in TFS just like some of the other CI server can. It was actually really simple but since it was a custom extension it needed to be deployed outside of TFS, which of course is a bit of a pain. 

With TFS 2015 RC and the new build system I’m happy to see there is now a new feature that let’s you get a build badge automatically!

To get a build badge you just need to enable it on the build vNext build definition:

Note how nice the url to the badge is presented:

With this you can easily include the build badge in any web page. I really like the new Markdown support so I would include it in your wiki by simply point to in the badge url:

Save and it renders nicely like this:

So with this my suggestion on Uservoice can be closed.
