    Lost Work Item queries

    Scott · 1 · Last reply by catlight

    On a couple of occasions in the last month I've come into work and realized CatLight has stopped notifying me of changes to work-item queries I monitor. Then on opening the CatLight window the builds+releases I'm monitoring are still listed, but all the work-item queries have been lost.

    I have to go into Settings and re-find the queries I want to monitor and select them again.

    "Unauthorized. Request id:xxx" error messages pop up.

    François Chabot · 2 · Last reply by François Chabot


    I am using catlight v 2.23.2. I am getting regular "Unauthorized. Request id: 2b6832baf635. You can check %appdata%...logs". This is not specific to this version, I get these errors since some time now, but it does not seem to get away. Are you aware of this?

    This is not blocking, catlight seems to be working correctly!

    Thank you!

    catlight · 0 · Posted

    In the new version of CatLight app, you can hide items from a context menu on a dashboard.

    This can be useful to stop monitoring specific branches of multi-branch builds.

    If you want to show all branches again, go to settings, and click on a branch icon near the build definition name.

    Rename VSTS to Azure DevOps Services

    Richard Hundhausen · 1 · Last reply by catlight


    First of all, I'm a fan. Now to business ...

    I just installed v2.21.1 for Windows and it shows VSTS. Microsoft renamed this to Azure DevOps Services back in September. Just a reminder to keep aligned with their naming. Also, TFS 2019 will be Azure DevOps Server 2019, just an FYI.

    Also, the URL is no longer <account>, but<organization>. The old URLs will still work, but you should update your UI to match the new theme.

    Also consider updating the terminology on the Azure DevOps marketplace page:

    Thank you.

    Nick Bachicha · 0 · Posted

    Would love a full screen, screen saver mode. 

    • Should display full screen
    • On Mouse Movement should go back to lock screen
    • On Keyboard Press it should go back to lock screen

    Used for displaying on a build board in team area.

    Auto-approve does not appear to be working

    Peter McEvoy · 2 · Last reply by Peter McEvoy

    We've recently purchased 20 licenses for our developers and it does not appear that users from our domain are getting added to the Team that is associated with those licenses.  My manger purchased the licenses and does not need (or want) to use catlight himself and thus does not want to take up a license. 

    He setup the team and enabled auto-approve, but existing and new users from our domain are not visible in the team.  I have tried sending invites for the team, but that does not seem to allocate licenses either.

    I'm unable to find the correct documentation

    Wrong branch name reported in Catlight from Jenkins Multibranch pipeline

    Guillaume Mulocher · 1 · Last reply by catlight

    I may be doing things wrong here.

    I have a Multibranch pipeline in jenkins that runs the builds for each branch - at the beginning of this pipeline I am importing a library from another git repository.


    In catlight - the branch name is the one of the Library I am importing (or the tag I am importing from the library) - not the branch of the actual project. 

    How is catlight detecting the branch name?

    Does it work with code review requests from TFS? Meaning can developers be notified when a code review request was submitted to them?
