Turn off label deletion when deleting builds

January 8th, 2009 · No Comments · Team Foundation Build (TF Build), Team Foundation Server, TFS 2008 SP1, TFS Installation and Configuration, TFS Tips and Tricks

By default a build label is deleted when the corresponding build gets deleted.

In TFS 2008 SP1 you can change that behavior by modifying the web.config file (on the TFS AT in folder %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Team Foundation Server\Web Services) to:

  <add key=”PreserveLabelsOnBuildDeletion” value=”true” />


(Thanks to Buck Hodges for this tip).
