Power apps buildtools: export solution not working


I a following the tutorial to setup ALM in Devops with the new Powerapps build tools (preview) from the marketplace.  "Export solution" in the pipeline doesn't seem to work (seems stuck). Manual export through UI is working. . After executing for 1 hour it just stops with below error ##[Error 1] The agent has received a shutdown signal. This can happen when the agent service is stopped, or a manually started agent is canceled.

Anyone else is having a similar problem?

Re: Power apps buildtools: export solution not working

Greetings and sincere apologies for the late response here! We have seen this issue before and is usually due to multi factor authentication enabled for the credentials used in the connection string. We will be adding an option to use service principals instead of username/password to adress this issue. For now, your only option is to use a service account that does not have multi factor auth enabled. Additionally, we are also working on letting the task fail sooner and with a descriptive error message explaining what underlying issue is.


Hope that helps?
