    Type: "Contains"; Value: ": error "; IgnoreCase: "True"; Actions: "MSBuild;DotNetBuild;DotNetPublish;DotNetTest;DotNetRun;Visual Studio";
  • Actions.Messages.WarningPatterns: Patterns for matching against each line of action standard output. Matching lines will be treated as warnings. Default: 

    Type: "RegEx"; Value: "^warning\b"; IgnoreCase: "True"; Actions: "*";
