Visual Studio

CloudBees Build Acceleration supports Visual Studio via the CloudBees Build Acceleration Visual Studio Integration, which is composed of the Visual Studio IDE Extension, the Visual Studio Converter Extension, and the ecdevenv utility.

Visual Studio IDE Extension

Visual Studio 2019, 2017, 2015, 2013, 2012, 2010, and 2008

The Visual Studio IDE Extension for Visual Studio 2010 or later does not support Xbox builds, Windows Mobile configurations, or custom build rules.

As of CloudBees Build Acceleration 5.3, support for the Visual Studio 2005 IDE is ended However, command-line builds for Visual Studio 2005 are still supported.

Visual Studio Converter Extension

All .NET versions of Visual Studio through version 2017.

Visual Studio Converter Extension support ended as of Visual Studio 2019.

ecdevenv Utility

All .NET versions of Visual Studio through version 2017.

Support ended as of Visual Studio 2019.

The ecdevenv utility is available only from the command line.

Linux kernel versions

The Cluster Manager and eMake have no dependency on the Linux kernel version. The Electric Agent/EFS includes kernel modules and has been certified for compatibility with the following specific Linux kernel versions. Other kernel versions are likely to work as well but may not have been explicitly certified for compatibility. In case you encounter incompatibilities with a kernel not listed here, you may be asked to reproduce the problem on one of the kernels listed here.

Web browsers

To connect to the Cluster Manager, you must use one of the following web browsers.

Desktop browsers

  • Chrome 43 or newer

  • Firefox 31.8 or newer

  • Internet Explorer 10 or newer

Mobile Browsers

  • Chrome on Android 4.4 (KitKat) or newer

  • Internet Explorer Mobile 11 or newer

  • Safari 7.1 or newer

Databases

The CloudBees Build Acceleration Cluster Manager requires a SQL database to operate. The following databases are supported:

  • MySQL 5.5.16

  • MariaDB 5.5.31 through 19.1.38

  • Oracle Database 11g Release 2

  • Oracle Database 12c

  • MS SQL Server 2008

If you do not have a suitable SQL database available, CloudBees Build Acceleration installs MariaDB when installing the Cluster Manager. If you are using an external database, it must be installed before installing the Cluster Manager.
