Build pipeline history

Azure Pipelines | TFS 2018 | TFS 2017 | TFS 2015


In Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS) 2018 and previous versions, build and release pipelines are called definitions, service connections are called service endpoints, stages are called environments, and jobs are called phases.

From the History tab you can see a list of changes that includes who made the change and when the change occurred.

TFS 2017.3 and newer

To work with a change, select it, click ..., and then click Compare Difference or Revert Pipeline.

TFS 2017 RTM

After you've viewed the history, if you want details about a change, select it and then choose Diff. If you want to roll back to an earlier version, select it, and then click Rollback.

Q & A

Can I edit the JSON source directly?


Do I need an agent?

You need at least one agent to run your build or release. Get an agent for Linux, macOS, or Windows.

I can't select a default agent pool and I can't queue my build or release. How do I fix this?

See Agent pools.

I use TFS on-premises and I don't see some of these features. Why not?

Some of these features are available only on Azure Pipelines and not yet available on-premises. Some features are available on-premises if you have upgraded to the latest version of TFS.
