dotnet msbuild <MSBUILD_ARGUMENTS>

dotnet msbuild -h


The dotnet msbuild command allows access to a fully functional MSBuild.

The command has the exact same capabilities as the existing MSBuild command-line client for SDK-style projects only. The options are all the same. For more information about the available options, see the MSBuild command-line reference.

The dotnet build command is equivalent to dotnet msbuild -restore. When you don’t want to build the project and you have a specific target you want to run, use dotnet build or dotnet msbuild and specify the target.
