You might want to trigger a build for a team foundation version control (TFVC) Label applied previously or if you are using Git version control for a Tag. Git tags are quite nicely supported in TFS/VSTS web Interface, but Label in TFVC is still only manageable with the Source Control explorer of Visual Studio. There is a user voice request to enable web experience for TFVC Labels, which you can also vote for . Let’s explore how to trigger build based on Tag or Label with VSTS/TFS.

You can configure search for on-premises TFS in TFS AT (described here), itself. But if you want to setup search service in a separate box from your TFS AT, you can follow the steps described in this post.
