How to prevent publishing test results with team build.

Problem:

I do not want to publish the test results with my team build.

Solution:

Override CoreTestConfiguration target and adjust the parameters for the call the TestToolsTask.

Code:

<Target Name="CoreTestConfiguration"
       
DependsOnTargets="$(CoreTestConfigurationDependsOn)"
                Outputs="@(TestOutputs)">

<Warning Condition=" '$(V8TestToolsTask)'=='true' and '$(TestNames)'!='' "
         Text
="Warning: The TestNames property cannot be used in in combination with the V8 TestToolsTask and will be ignored." />

<Warning Condition=" '$(V8TestToolsTask)'=='true' and '@(LocalTestContainer)' != '' "
         Text
="Warning: The TestContainer item group cannot be used in combination with the V8 TestToolsTask and will be ignored." />

<PropertyGroup>
  <
ContinueOnTestError Condition=" '$(StopOnTestFailure)' != 'true' ">true</ContinueOnTestError>
  <
ContinueOnTestError Condition=" '$(StopOnTestFailure)' == 'true' ">false</ContinueOnTestError>
</
PropertyGroup>

Explanation:

To override CoreTestConfiguration simply locate the Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Build.targets file and copy it from there into your TFSBuild.proj file.

To prevent build from publishing the test results simply remove the values for the following parameters from each instance of the TestToolsTask:

BuildFlavor="$(Configuration)"
Platform="$(Platform)"
PublishServer="$(TeamFoundationServerUrl)"
PublishBuild="$(BuildUri)"
TeamProject="$(TeamProject)"

If these parameters are left off the TestToolsTask the results will not be published.  The test are all executed and the build will fail if any of the test fail.  Note that you will not see the number of passed and failed test in the build report. It appears that the results must be published for that to happen. The results of the test can be reviewed in two ways.  First you can simply open the buildlog.txt file where the list of test and their results are listed.  If you need more detailed information you can locate the trx file in the TestResults folder on the build machine.
