A parameter cannot be found that matches parameter name 'AbortOnWarningLevel'

If you started getting the following error:
A parameter cannot be found that matches parameter name 'AbortOnWarningLevel'
when using the DLM Automation VSTS add-on, this is caused by using a Private agent with an old incompatible version of DLM Automation installed locally.

There are 2 ways to resolve this issue:

1 - You can upgrade the local DLM Automation to version 2.1.0 or greater
(this is useful if for some reason you need to lock to a particular version of DLM Automation or otherwise need to have the application installed locally)

2 - You can uninstall the local DLM Automation - this will cause the VSTS add-on to get the latest version of DLM Automation

    Quick note to verify this. I had this error and upgrading to DLM 1.2 fixed it.
  • Update on this: we've now updated the VSTS Build and Release addons so that they will default to using the latest version of DLM Automation from the PowerShell Gallery, even if another version of DLM Automation is already installed on the local agent.

    If your build/release agents do not have internet access, they will fall back to trying to use the installed version of DLM Automation.

    If you need to force the addons to use a particular version of DLM Automation, you can set a specific version number to use in the task definition UI.

    I'm having a similar issue, but with the following errors. This started today when our on-premise TFS 2018 server updated the DLM Automation Build extensions to 2.0.22:

    Wow! I think version 2.0.23 has fixed this. Thanks!

     :) 
  • Yes, sorry. When we changed the addins to prefer the DLM Automation module from the PowerShell Gallery, we introduced an incompatibility with older PowerShell versions (<5.1) - as soon as the problem was reported, we shipped a fix in 2.0.23.
