Vault VCS removed from Teamcity bundled plugs

Post by bjin » Wed Dec 11, 2019 7:30 am

Hello,
We just noticed that Vault VCS bundled plugin has been removed from Teamcity 2019.2 build 71499.
Still works to put it there manually tho.
Any particular reason for this action you are aware of?

It's been very silent from you guys the last year or so, it just kinda got us worried as to where Sourcegear Vault is heading.

We haven't heard from JetBrains folks for a bit of time, and they'd be able to better answer questions about decisions made on TeamCity. Have you posted anything on their forums regarding any kind of change?

Thank you.

FWIW, I reached out to a couple of contacts I had as well. I have no idea if they're still with JetBrains, so who knows if I'll hear back. Between the two of us, perhaps we can get some kind of status update.

JetBrains got back to me with a status update:
Since TeamCity 2019.2 we no longer bundle Vault plugin with TeamCity distributive. In the latest versions we've been unbundling some plugins aiming to reduce the size of TeamCity distribution and lists of supported runners, tools and version controls on our web forms.

Users still can install the plugin from our plugin repository in several clicks and even without restarting TeamCity server. We mentioned this in 2019.2 upgrade notes. On TeamCity servers using Vault VCS after the upgrade to 2019.2 administrators get a notification which guides them to the plugin repository page and helps installing it. We also continue providing support for all jetbrains-written plugins.
Hope that helps clear up any confusion.
