Visual Studio Team Services Integration

Integrate Screener into your VSTS Pull Request workflow, and do both code review + visual review from one place:

  • When visual changes are found by Screener, the Pull Request status will be marked as failed in VSTS.
  • Review visual changes simply by clicking on the status link.
  • The VSTS Pull Request status will automatically update to succeeded when visual changes are accepted in Screener, reducing the need to re-run a CI build to see a green success status.

Setup Steps

  1. Integrate Screener into your CI process for continuous visual testing.

  2. Update screener.config.js file with your VSTS instance domain, and set failureExitCode option to 0 (to not fail CI builds):

    // screener.config.js
    module.exports = {
      projectRepo: 'MyProject/MyRepo',
      vsts: {
        instance: ''
      failureExitCode: 0

  3. Ensure projectRepo is set to your VSTS Project name and Repository name in the following format: {ProjectName}/{RepoName}

    If your VSTS Project and Repository names are the same, then set the Project name only: {ProjectName}

  4. Open Account > Visual Studio Team Services, and click Grant VSTS Access (this must be performed by the Screener Account Owner).
