Tips & Tricks

This page will contain various tips and tricks you can do with your Automaton installation. This information will form the basis of a future manual/user guide for Automaton.

Trick: Use Registry for Server settings

I've added the ability to put server and user account settings for TFS connection in the Windows registry.

This is useful during development, as you don't have to make the web.config readable, and you don't have to walk through the wizard.

Put the following in a .reg file and run it on your local machine/server so you won't have to use the configuration wizard after an upgrade:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

HKEYLOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\Automaton
"Server"="server"
"Username"="user"
"Password"="password"
"Domain"="MyDomain"

(Put square brackets around the first line)

It will first try to read from the web.config, but if that does not contain a server value, it'll try to find in the registry.
