TeamCity Reviews & Product Details

TeamCity Overview

What is TeamCity?

TeamCity will make sure your software gets built, tested, and deployed, and you get notified about that appropriately, in any way you choose. It’s a continuous integration and deployment server from JetBrains which takes moments to set up, shows your build results on-the-fly, and works out of the box. And best of all – it’s free by default.

Product Description

One reason TeamCity is dubbed an "Intelligent CI server" is its approach to integration. When we say we support a tool, we mean it in every way possible. For example, support for Visual Studio projects provides automatic detection of tool versions, testing frameworks support, code coverage, static code analysis, and more.

How do you position yourself against your competitors?

- Easy initial setup and low maintenance costs, thanks to all main functionality being available out of the box.
- Time savings on regular and repetitive build engineering and developer tasks due to intelligent features and deep integration with and understanding of the development process.
- Adjusts to multiple development styles and frameworks so your teams can perform better.
- Low entry barrier thanks to informative and rich interfaces.
- Extendable architecture to accommodate to your organization’s special needs.
- Ready to scale as your organization grows, with advanced scalability features and appropriate licensing model.
- Professional support. The product is being continuously developed and regularly updated by a team of 20+ JetBrains developers. You receive professional enterprise level support from the development team via both public and private channels.

What do you like best?

It is simple and easy set-up tool. It provides way to use the tool like Maven. We can use parent settings in child projects. We can integrate multiple version control tools to build. It also gives feature to help testing so the manual testing work would get sort of automated. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

If not configured properly observing build logs can be difficult. User interface is very basic can be improved to the modern technologies. Even if you have small ecosystem of producs/projects you need to fully configure the server. Do not have provision like SaaS. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Ho for it. It's good and easy tool to integrate in the project ecosystem. If you are looking for quick solution then teamCity is the one. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

What do you like best?

We can execute different test suits like unit, integration, UI at the same time on different virtual machines using TeamCity.

We can divide suites into different parts to balance the timings.

Using TeamCity we directly assign test failure to concern person and it sends notification mail it.

It's UI is very user friendly.

We can download compiled build , Screenshot of failed scenario and other reports as artifacts.

Multiple teams can schedule multiple builds at same time.

It shows details history of the each build and pattern of the test using past results.

It shows schedule time, start time and finish time for the each build we triggered. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't see any dislike, it's one of the great build integration tool. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I will highly recommend teamcity to IT compnies. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

1) The best part is the flexibility in terms of branching integration through VCS,

2) Writing build steps w.r.t to the images

3) Setting up the docker images as agents w.r.t versions

4) Maintaining the separate pipelines for every CI & CD

5) A plugin can be installed easily

6) we can maintain a couple of docker agents w.r.t to the pipelines

7) We can use the branching strategies in the team city w.r.t to the pipeline i.e. feature branch, Release branch

8) I use this tool for the integration of sonar Qube & it is dam easy for rectifying the errors too.

9) In terms of the build errors, I feel it is understandable & easy rectifying, I used Jenkin tool but after using the TeamCity I felt this is the most emerging tool in the market

10) I implemented many pipelines to the other departments in my organization & it is understandable even to the non-DevOps folks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Only one i.e. For every new setting we can set it up the permission concept. I do understand it is security but for every small thing, It is not required to set it up as permission. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

As I said it is one of the best tools in the market comparing to the other CI tools &

I recommended my mates to start using the TeamCity & they are satisfied with the same. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Branching concept mainting the feature branch, Release branch & few other branches for different pipelines. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Once setup and configured, it's incredibly easy to test and release a piece of code, and diagnose problems across multiple teams using the online platform. Highly customisable, such as which outputs to test, what to save, and on which machines the tests should be run. Non-regression tests can also be run locally when developing them, to ensure they meet your requirements for robustness, before executing them remotely. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Writing and diagnosing the tests themselves can be time consuming, which makes them difficult to maintain in parallel with development of the source code itself. The configuration menus could certainly be made simpler to navigate, too. You really have to know where to find all the options, and what each parameter means before embarking on a successful project. i.e some expert guidance is absolutely necessary to extract the benefits from TeamCity in my opinion. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Personally, I would recommend to new users to purchase with a technical support package. Understanding well the ins and outs of the software, both the possibilities and limitations, as well as the significance of every parameter is essential before embarking on a successful project. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Implementing testing of changes to code, of which multiple teams can be a customer. By integrating with Team Foundation Server, this process has become automatic and invisible to the programmer and end-user. This has reduced likelihood of errors, and streamlined the process of sharing new software versions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I find it so much more intuitive and easier to use than some of the standard CI platforms out there. It is very reliable and has helped us improve our software development process immensely. It is easy to integrate custom scripts to generate builds or the standard plugins provided for things like Xcode and Android. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I'm a fan of programs from developer "JET BRAINS", so I decided to try TeamCity. At once I will say that I was not disappointed. It has a clear user interface and good navigation on it. The platform is quite flexible and stands up for all your needs. TeamCity provides a good set of functions for a building of your project. Also you can control assembling the project and then test it. An excellent user guide, it is complete and understandable. Excellent acceptance tests, most of all I use them. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Quite a complex system. Many settings for each project, this requires a lot of knowledge and time. It would be nice to simplify and automate this process. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

TeamCity is definitely worth your attention if you are looking for an enterprise software for continuous integration. You can try it and decide yourself! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We began to save a lot of time. We have reduced the number of failures and problems. We control about 20 projects using TeamCity. It's pretty easy to control so many projects because you can call up the necessary tests and just wait for notifications. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Teamcity is a powerful tool for continuous integration and continuous deployment in a production environment. It provides a simple setup process, with the ability to configure many parameters. The software product has a simple user interface. A large number of plug-ins help to significantly expand the functionality. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

At the beginning, the tool may seem a bit complicated, especially if you are a beginner. As for testing, it is not always possible to quickly interpret errors. Sometimes it is difficult to understand why the assembly broke. In addition, I would like to upgrade the interface. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you need the service ""all in one"" - then TeamCity - a godsend for you!

This service is easy to configure and starts for a very short time. Simplicity of scalability. TeamCity is well suited for small companies, but it can also be used for a large company with an enhanced package. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My team had a need to create one common environment for all applications with the possibility of simple integration. So, TeamCity is an excellent tool for automatic assembly, testing and continuous deployment. This service has allowed us to improve the efficiency of the entire continuous delivery process.

Easy to install and configure

Easy to use Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Too frequent major updates, requiring IT time to re-setup. This is actually the biggest reason we are moving off of TeamCity.

Also, it was not designed with security in mind. For example, the register user page is turned on by default, which is a huge security hole because it allows anyone to create an account. And putting this web app behind an HTTPS-only connection doesn't quite work because the administration pages are hard-coded to link to HTTP (very poor coding practice), so then user has to manually change address to HTTPS again and again. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try it out and be sure to evaluate what it is going to be like when there is a new major version every year, and also do a security risk analysis. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We configure both CI builds and for deploys, for multiple environments. Most of the time it works very well so that we don't even have to think about it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

TeamCity truly deserves to be called an "Intelligent CI server".
