Error: Unable to complete CreateRelease Task.

Mar 25, 2009 at 3:36 PM

I am trying to use CodePlex MSBuild Tasks and getting following error:
error : Unable to complete CreateRelease Task. [System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException]: Insufficient permissions to perform the operation.

I know I provide correct username/password and I also should have all the required permission in the project

Any ideas about what might be wrong?
I noticed that one setting in an example provided should say Username and not User so I changed that already.

I was getting the same issue until I figured out that the ProjectName parameter to CreateRelease is meant to be the URL of the project, the subdomain portion in front of

Noted the same error with Username parameter in the example in the docs.

And the purported ShowOnHomePage parameter in the example is not accepted, causes an error:
error MSB4064: The "ShowOnHomePage" parameter is not supported by the "CreateRelease" task. Verify the parameter exists on the task, and it is a settable public instance property.
Time for documentation review / cleanup of the page Using the CodePlex MSBuild Tasks.
