How can I set environment variables PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH on Unix TeamCity build agent?
I use TeamCity to build c++ on Unix (Solaris). TeamCity invokes make, and within my makefile I need to call svn. For this I need to modify PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
I could set these within the makefile but the locations vary from server to server. does anyone know a way to set these for each TeamCity build agent, e.g. by editing conf/buildAgent.properties?
I could set them in ~/.login etc for the TeamCity build account, but I would prefer not to as it is a shared account.
You could create a wrapper script that exports these variables before executing the TeamCity command.
You can configure the environment in conf/buildAgent.properties as you suspected, by setting properties that begin with env.. It works for both setting variables from scratch and modifying existing values. Mine looks like this:
(It's hidden in the docs. I'm not sure if 5.0 had this (I think it did, though), but 7.0 definitely does.)
