Getting Team City working with BitBucket

As a part of building a CI/CD home lab, I set up TeamCity in the past. I plan on using this for multiple projects, and in fact, I’d built a basic Hello, World C# application as my first build.

Now it is time to work on something more complex. As a part of my SQL Server Builds project, I decided to host the Ready Roll build here. That means connecting TeamCity to BitBucket.

I had no idea how this might work, and some searching showed that this needed a plugin prior to v10, but the capability was built-in after that. I’ve been meaning to upgrade, so I did that first. As you can see, I have my TC v10 system, and when I go to create a new project, BitBucket is a first class citizen.

Once I picked this, the system has me authenticate with Bitbucket (I won’t show this) and then get a key and secret that I paste into the dialog. This is fairly easy to follow, but for security purposes I’ll skip that. Once I’m authenticated, I can see my repos:

I pick this repo and a project is created. In fact, TeamCity detects that I’ve got a VS solution in the repo, so it sets that as my build config.

That’s pretty cool, and I’m hooked up. Or am I? Let’s see. I’ll manually run a build.

It doesn’t work. However, if you read the error, you’ll realize that the ReadyRoll project type doesn’t seem to work. That’s because I’m building on this server, which is separate from my development machine. I need to install the ReadyRoll binaries there.

A quick download from Redgate, and I install ReadyRoll. Now when I click “run”, I get this:

There’s more to getting setup, but this is a quick look at getting TeamCity hooked up to BitBucket.

If you want to try ReadyRoll, grab an eval.
