    Shortcut on desktop is created everytime CatLight updates itself

    Mek · 0 · Posted

    CatLight likes to update itself in the background, without me knowing about that. Anyway, when it updates itself, it always creates a shortcut on my desktop. I don't like this behavior because I have to delete the shortcut everytime. I see no point of having a shortcut on my desktop when CatLight is always available via the tray and is set to start with Windows.

    Please do not re-create the shortcut after user deletes it.

  • CatLight 2.14 - Green cat and High Sierra support

    catlight · 0 · Posted

    When all your builds and tasks are in a good shape, CatLight icon will now turn green.

    Get the latest version from 

    CatLight 2.14 also supports new Mac OS High Sierra (10.13). However, it can no longer run on old versions of Mac OS (10.11 and older) due to compatibility limitations of .Net Core. If you want to stay on older version of Mac OS, you can still use 2.12 version of the app.

  • How to reset the app

    catlight · 0 · Posted

    If you experience problems with starting the application, you can reset it by deleting the configuration files. This will remove all your CatLight settings and preferences, so that you can re-configure the application from a clean state.

    "I will investigate" has sync problems

    Johny Woller Skovdal · 1 · Last reply by catlight

    Recently we have seen problems with the "I will investigate" functionality. It has mainly 2 issues:

    1. A person can "hang" as "investigating" on other persons' Catlight instance, while the person in question has a Catlight instance that says he/she is not currently investigating anything. - this one is critical, because we have errors that aren't looked into for a long while, until somebody asks the person why he/she hasn't fixed the error yet...!
    2. "Investigating" isn't cleared after a green build, but must instead manually be cleared. This also leads to wrong behavior, because if a build breaks, a person investigates,

    Remove entries for deleted public git branches

    m.r. · 1 · Last reply by m.r.

    Please add possibility to remove build status information when remote git branch associated with the build was deleted

    Otherwise the view is polluted with information for past builds for branches which were long integrated into mainline and are not existing anymore. One day timeout for short lived is way too long - we create many short lived branches.

    Morten · 3 · Last reply by catlight

    On Windows PC trying to log in to the app to active the licens I get this error: an error occurred while sending the request - we have a http proxy but as far as we can see it allows the http/https traffic to * to pass through. Is it possible to active some verbose logging in catlight app to investigate further? Regards Morten

    CatLigth shows two items of the same Build Task

    thomas3577 · 2 · Last reply by catlight

    We use Jenkins as lokal Build-Server.

    Sometimes, if a Build failed, CatLight shows two items of the same Build Task.

    And this second item stay in the list also when the build already success. And I have no options to remove this second item from the list.

    Is this wanted? If "yes", why?

    Show build folders in TFS 2017

    catlight · 1 · Last reply by Jeff Winn

    Currently the app shows TFS 2017 as a flat list for each project. Vote on this idea if you want a hierarchical build definition display.

    It would be nice have an option like:

    "hide work item changes made by:"

    and a list of ignored users changes.


  • CatLight 2.12 - Focus mode

    catlight · 0 · Posted

    Getting distracted by too many notifications? Try the new focus mode. CatLight icon will turn white, and you will get notifications only if you break the build.

    Focus mode will be active for 12 hours.

    Showing old, failed build when build has passed (CatLight v2.11.10; Jenkins 2.60.1)

    Richard Bogle · 1 · Last reply by Richard Bogle

    The connection logs in as an admin to our Jenkins server. "All builds" is checked for "Show build notifications". All options are checked for "Show notifications". Dashboard is showing old, failed build when build has passed (CatLight v2.11.10; Jenkins 2.60.1). Why are later builds not showing up?

    "I will investigate" shows error when clicked (and hides estimated build time) and spanner disappears before can be clicked

    Darren Wogan · 2 · Last reply by catlight

    Clicking "I will investigate" message generates a "Error: Request failed with status code 500" message and am unable to click the config icon (spanner) as disappears straight away.

    This prevents you dismissing or selecting to stop investigating, which then prevents you seeing the estimated build completion time for a fresh build.

    Be able to resize the notifications that show

    Ash Rhodes · 0 · Posted

    With dual monitors its sometimes hard to see when a notification pops up in the corner, I'm like a horse with blinds on sometimes and I would love to be able to have a bigger notification or be able to turn the entire screen red, for just a second or two when the build fails that way I can jump right on it instead of having to check the corner.

    Cannot create account in the app

    catlight · 0 · Posted

    This usually happens when the app cannot connect to the online service.

    Please check your firewall, and make sure that CatLight.exe and LocalWeb.exe processes are allowed to connect to the Internet.

    If you use a proxy server that requires manual configuration, you can go to Edit menu/Settings/Proxy and provide connection details.

    For more information, you can check the application logs at %AppData%\CatLight\Logs\log.txt

    Here is a sample error message, indicating a connection problem:
