PowerApps Build Tools on Azure DevOps Server (on-prem) ?

The marketplace page for PowerApps BuildTools says it works with Azure DevOps Services (on-prem).


I don't see anything in the documentation on requirements of the agent, etc. for Azure DevOps Services.  Has anyone got it working and can share info?


I understand there is this on 'Install extensions for on-premises server
Wondering if there's anything more, specific to PowerApps Build Tools.




Yes, Power Platform Build tools should work with both Azure DevOps Services and Azure DevOps Server (on premise)


Some information about tools and clients that connect to Azure DevOps server:


I can find below document on Microsoft Power Platform Build Tools for Azure DevOps. Please check if this helps.


Thank you.


What is the version


@BrianDW There aren't any specific prereqs on the Azure DevOps server side, but there are some expectations for the build agents the tasks run on:

- Windows OS, can be either server or client SKU; should be a recent OS version

- .NET Classic 4.6/4.7/4.8, i.e. the 4.x that is default on most Windows10 installs; the C# binaries used in the PS modules and nuget packages have been compiled with .NET Classic 4.62 since that's what the CRM SDKs are compiled with

- PowerShell Desktop 5.1 (note: no PS Core support!)

- agent needs anonymous access to, and any urls those might redirect a request

- agent needs access to the CDS environment API endpoints and its associated AAD


- if you also run e.g. msbuild tasks to build .cdsproj, those builds will likely also require VS2019 or similar on the agent
