Trigger TFS and VSTS buildjobs using wildcards

In TFS and VSTS one can create a whole list of triggers that particular build-jobs. In the drop-down one can select an existing branch and all done. But if you like to trigger your CI build-jobs for all feature branches one can use wildcards too.

Eg. “feature/*

To do so you have to expand the drop-down and enter the filter text into the Textbox that looks like a search box. Press ENTER and TFS / VSTS will use exactly this filter. Its not quite intuitive but works.

See the following screenshots.

I love to write software. More then two decades ago I managed to make my hobby my full-time job so I spent more then 20 year writing professional software (I guess that makes me a "Senior Software Developer"). The last few years I spend most of the time developing in C#/.Net for all kind of windows-, web- and embedded-software.

In my free time I enjoy my family, taking photos and go diving in cold lakes and rivers in Switzerland.
