      Hi Evahn, please use the latest version of Node.js. Thank you for your recommendation about including a link to documentation for access tokens. I will include with the next update to the release notes.

    Hi,
    release notes for TFS 2018 Update 3.2 Patch 15 says “to apply Patch 13 you will have to install…”
    But Patch 13 is for TFS 2017 Update 3.1

    So is it just a typo from the Patch number, or is the whole information for TFS 2018 Update 3.2 Patch 15 incorrect?

    Best regards,
    Christian

      Hi Scott,
      Please find my answers below:
      1. You can check from the TFX command logs for any failures. In addition, the task version for this fix is 2.1.5, so after installation, the task should show this version in the logs(it would be showing an older version before installation).
      2. You can download the current task version at anytime, the URL for that is /_apis/distributedtask/tasks/94A74903-F93F-4075-884F-DC11F34058B4/ . There is no change in the task except mitigating the security vulnerability, so you don’t need to roll back. If you do need to roll back, you will need to delete the task from the server using TFX CLI(using the command, tfx build tasks delete –task-id 94A74903-F93F-4075-884F-DC11F34058B4), followed by installing the downloaded task using the same procedure mentioned in the doc.
      3. Since you are interacting with the ADO server, you would need to run these on the machine which is running the ADO server, or one from which the ADO server is accessible. You might need to set routing rules for the latter case.

        Hi Ashwin,

        could you provide the new task versions for every TFS version?
        e.g. I just updated the Task on a TFS 2018 Update 3.2 Patch 15 and the command tfx build tasks list still shows version 2.131.3

        Thx,
        Christian

            Christian,
            Could you also share the message you got when you tried command “tfx build tasks upload” on 2018 update 3.2 patch 15.
            Also could you try triggering any pipeline which uses this task and verify version there too.

    Hi Gloridel

    I was told that the following issue would be fixed the the April patch, but cannot see it from the release notes:
    https://developercommunity2.visualstudio.com/t/Azure-DevOps-Server-2020-Retention-Polic/1306205

    Is is possible to install Azure DevOps Server 2020.0.1 Patch 2 directly on top of Azure DevOps Server 2020.0.1 RC? I aim for installing 2020.1 when released, but would be good to know in case that plan fails.

  • William Charlton

    I just did a direct/in-place upgrade of Azure DevOps Server 2019 (patch7) to ADS 2020, then I installed ADS 2020 Patch 1, 2, and 3.

    Do I need to worry about any of the patches related to ADS 2020.0.1?

    • Gloridel MoralesMicrosoft employee

      Hi William, to have fixes for this security patches you should first update to Azure DevOps Server 2020.0.1 and then install Patch 2. So far, we have released only 2 patches for Azure DevOps Server 2020.0.1.

  • gaoshal

    Is there an off line patch 15 for TFS 2018 3.2?
    When click on the patch it takes me to patch 14.

  • Christian Hanna

    Hi,
    in the release notes you wrote:

    Option 2: Check the version of the following file: [INSTALL_DIR]\Azure DevOps Server 2019\Application Tier\Web Services\bin\Microsoft.VisualStudio.Services.Feed.Server.dll. Azure DevOps Server 2019 is installed to c:\Program Files\Azure DevOps Server 2019 by default. After installing Azure DevOps Server 2019.1.1 Patch 8, the version will be 17.153.31010.1.

    Actually it’s a different version. After installing Patch 8 the version of the dll is 17.153.31129.2

    Good Afternoon.
    I ran Azure DevOps Server 2019.1.1 Patch 8 and rebooted, then I did a verify with Run devops2019.1.1patch8.exe CheckInstall and my version shows up as 17.153.31010.1. Your updated shows a new version 17.153.31129.2. I am not sure how to get my server to that version. What am I missing. My install says successful. What am I missing?

    Thank you
