I had a need to write a .txt file with build details for every build (windows). This involves using environmental variables and executing a windows batch command.
@echo off echo Build number: %1 echo BUILD_ID: %2 echo JOB_NAME: %3 echo build_tag: %4 echo BUILD_URL: %5 echo WORKSPACE: %6
In your hudson job configuration select “Execute windows batch commmand” and then input the following:
c:\buildinfo.bat %BUILD_NUMBER% %BUILD_ID% %JOB_NAME% %BUILD_TAG% %BUILD_URL% %WORKSPACE% > c:\buildinfo.txt
Of course you will need to use robocopy or something to copy that in to your workspace or you could add:
copy c:\buildinfo.txt %workspace%
