Adding a Build Step¶
Generating living documentation from your Gherkin files with SpecFlow+ LivingDoc requires you to add the SpecFlow+ build step to your build process. This build step parses the Gherkin files in your solution and formats them for display in DevOps/VSTS/TFS.
A default build step for is included when installing the extension. This build step only generates the documentation; it does not execute any tests or build your solution.
For more information on configuring the build step, see the appropriate chapter depending on the type of build:
- Build step configured in DevOps/TFS/VSTS: See Configuring-the-Build-Step-in-DevOps
- YAML build step: See Configuring the Build Step in YAML
Note: You do not need to use DevOps/VSTS/TFS to actually build your application. You can simply add a build definition that acquires the sources and generates the documentation.
