How to set version metadata?

See original GitHub issue
  1. I want to use the VersionPrefix property inside my csproj to define my package’s semver 2.0 (3-part) version.
  2. I want to attach a 4th part and build metadata on the command line.

In other words, I want to have the version be, e.g. “”

Where 1.2.3 is stored in the csproj and .4 comes from the CI environment and +40c432 is the commit hash.

The problem I’ve run into is that using --version-suffix automatically makes it a pre-release version, which I don’t want.

Even if I ignore the 4th number (build number), I can’t even do this:

dotnet build MyProj  --version-suffix "+f0c432"


/usr/local/share/dotnet/sdk/2.2.107/NuGet.targets(114,5): error : '1.2.3-+f0c432' is not a valid version string

@TheBoneJarmer you can set the exact version with dotnet pack -p:Version="[EXACT_FULL_VERSION]"

PureKromecommented, Dec 1, 2021

what’s annoying here @jasonkarns is that the -p: / /p: is not, like, part of the nuget pack command, but just a “catchall” saying “just pass in anything else to the low level msbuild command”. Sure, that’s what all of this is doing.

But the version stuff should be a more “1st class” citizen of the dotnet pack command, IMO.

I’ll go and open a new issue to see if the team could consider adding this.
