    Dynamically include all builds/releases

    David Richards · 2 · Last reply by David Richards

    While you can select all for builds/releases, this only includes the ones present at that point in time.

    We create a lot of builds/releases (as we work across lots of projects and try to create lots of small repos that do 1 thing well) - so we often have people forgetting to add all the latest ones and thus miss notifications!

    Advanced Notification Settings

    catlight · 0 · Posted

    I would like to change the notification settings in a more detailed way:

    I want to get a "Build starts"-notification if I start a build and a "Build succeeds"-notification if it succeeds, but when other people start a build I only want to see the "Build starts"-notification because it could interrupt my work. It's not necessary for me to see the "Build succeeds"-notification.

    Catlight does not work on debian stretch

    Arkan · 3 · Last reply by Arkan

    Hi, I have debian stretch installed, and I tried to install Catlight 2.15.4, I saw that it needs libicu52 which it does not exist on stretch, so I used jessie repo to get it, then install Catlight-2.15.4.deb with dpkg, it started but with empty content, it has only menu, but it does not work if I try to sign in, or add a connection, but it can redirect me through the browser if I click on "Report a Problem".

    I attached a screenshot for it.

    Best regards,

    It would be great if I could select multiple build definitions to queue multiple builds at once.

    Ability to put the build at the top of the queue when using "Build now"

    catlight · 0 · Posted

    It would be nice to allow the changing of an existing build's priority level like can be done in Visual Studio. Also, allow the explicit setting of the build priority when initiating a new build from the context menu "Build Now" option. This would be helpful after fixing broken builds and bumping them  towards the top.

    build investigation feature is hidden

    andi · 1 · Last reply by catlight


    I just stumbled onto an issue.

    I was wondering why the build investigation feature was not showing up, although I added my credentials for the jenkins build server.

    It turns out that the feature only works when you provide base url for the jenkins server:


    if you provide a link to a filtered view like


    the jobs will show show up in catlight, like they are specified in the jenkins view, but the build investigation feature will not work.

    This is not a big problem and can be avoided easily. But I thought you might want

    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

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Can not login in catlight app to activate license

    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
