Allows to specify details that are used by Outomated to create and run a build. For every new build, a build configuration screen asks user to specify Build Capability, required tests, server specific settings such as display resolution, runner preferences and other options.
See Running Builds to learn how build configuration is used before a build starts.
IDE supports faster builds by reusing build config.
#Difference between Build Configuration and Build Capability

A build capability may have several customization options specified. If not kept separately and reusable, all those custom option will have to be specified every time a build runs.
