How to find properties in the Code Stream output schema

Share on:

I've been doing a bit of work in Code Stream lately, and was running into some issues with a pipeline I built a while ago, but had updated the Cloud Template it was interacting with, as a result of these changes in the template I was now getting the error message Unable to resolve task input property : tasks['Build.Deploy Worker VM']['output.deploymentDetails']. I proceeded to bang my head against the wall for a bit:

  • It used to work!
  • It matches an example someone else did!
  • Maybe if I just run it again it will work!

After taking a moment to collect myself, I noticed the link VIEW OUTPUT JSON - and clicked on it. A helpful debugging link!

This brings up a window that will display the output of the selected task and let you search for things, and then bring up the full reference for easy copy and pasting into your pipeline! Talk about an easy button! Easy Button!
