  1. Allow Variables to be Version Controlled

    Imagine you have a connection string variable and you want to update it. You would update the variable and redeploy, however if you made a mistake (edited the wrong variable or the new connection string was not live yet) then you cannot roll back. This is even more of a problem if the variable is sensitive as you can't copy it beforehand.

    I would like to be able to version octopus variables, this would include:
    - Who
    - When
    - When deployed
    - The ability to roll back/forward.

    At the moment we have to source control much of this type…

  2. Disable Chrome AutoFill on inputs

    The chrome autofill gets in the way of dropdowns/multi-selects. There is not the ability for a user to disable autofill for specific websites, but this is supposed to work on the developer side:

  3. Support for High Priority Deployments/Tasks

    Sometimes our task queue is filled with a lot of tasks waiting to be executed. Every once in a while a priority deployment needs to take place at the same time.
    In such case It would be very useful if we could mark this deployment as "High Priority", so that the tasks of this deployment are handled before the already existing tasks in the queue.
    This is not possible now, the only solution now is to cancel all the existing tasks.

  4. Option to hide Spaces in navigation

    Just upgraded to 2019.1 - the Spaces navigation item bothers me a lot. We only have one space, and don’t want more spaces (and won’t upgrade our license), yet I can’t seem to find an option to remove this. Something to add under Configuration > Features?

  5. Support Terraform 0.12

    Octopus supports Terraform-Steps. It uses Terraform 0.11. Terraform 0.12 has been released and has a few breaking changes. Update the Terraform-Integration to be compatible with Terraform 0.11 and 0.12.

  6. Deployment Steps - Loop Step with variable

    Hi,
    I have a service/container and I want to launch it in the same machine a number of times (variable to be applied per environment/tenant) .

    Do you have something for this? Can you put this?

  7. Show the Project name on HTML Title instead of "Overview - Octopus Deploy"

    When you navigate to a project, you get to the Overview page as a start. When you open up many projects at once (cause a change triggered multiple CI for example, which should be deployed) all of them will show "Overview - Octopus Deploy" in the HTML title and as such it's also what's displayed on the browser tabs:

    You loose the ability to distinguish between these tabs. It also means that if you bookmark multiple projects then you'll have to change their title manually to have a valuable label for them. You have to click around them to figure…

  8. Scheduled deployments allow select release versions

    Hi,
    We would like to select certain release versions in the scheduled deployment triggers similar to how we create a new release and can select a release version
    Currently it doesn't seem to be possible and it uses only the latest release
    Hope this can added in the next Octopus release
    Thanks,
    KK

  9. Support Azure DevOps Artifacts Universal Packages

    It would be nice to support Azure DevOps Artifacts Universal Packages feeds. We are slowly moving to Azure DevOps Artifacts (for artifact management only), and would like to use Universal Packages.

  10. Add an option to the IIS deploy step that, when checked, restarts the app pool

    As an Octopus project builder, I need an option on the IIS deploy step that will allow us to restart the app pool after the deployment of the new web application so that code changes within the application can take immediate effect when deploying.

  11. Create a point in time restore out of the audit logs

  13. A project should have a unique identifier

    We run automation on our projects and found that each project does not have a unique identifier. The slug should be unique but we've found that when the project name has been renamed, the slug changes as well.

    It would be nice to have some unique id that cannot be changed.

  14. Make deployments synchronous for a specific environment

    I help manage deployments for a software team that is working on moving from bi-weekly releases to continuous delivery. In order to transition smoothly, we have decided to have four environments in our pipeline: Dev > Alpha > Beta > Production. This allows us to continuously deliver internally from Dev (automatically deployed to from build server) to Alpha (snapshot of all projects promoted to Beta bi-weekly for staging).

    What I would like to have the ability to do is make all deployments to Dev synchronous in that they wait if there is a current deployment to Dev and stay pending…

  15. Add a step to allow deployment of a template to create Subscription level resources in Azure

    Azure allows for the deployment of Subscription level resources via a template, but currently there is no out of the box step to do this in Octopus.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-resource-manager/deploy-to-subscription

    It would be great if we could have a built in step, along the same lines as the 'Deploy an Azure Resource Manager' template step.

  16. Enable worker pool support for 'Deploy a Package' step

    We have nearly a dozen client/WPF projects that primarily consist of backing up a directory and then overwriting it with an updated package (size ranging from 20-350MB). Each of these projects push their packages to 20 remote servers, but the servers cannot host tentacles due to our security policies, so we run the steps from one of our Octopus hosts (via tentacle installed alongside the manager service). This is slow and expensive on the Octopus host, especially when there are many other deploys underway. Worst of all, it forces steps to deploy in serial versus parallel because all steps are…

  17. Install Let's Encrypt module on Octopus Cloud to enable a CNAME for ODC instances

    With Octopus Cloud 2012.5.9 we can’t assign our own CNAME to the server instance due to the Let’s Encrypt module being missing.

    It is ok for internal use, but if we want Tenants to have access to see what we’ve deployed for them, then we would want to use octopus.mycompany.com not mycompany123.octopus.app.

    It might seem minor, but does Octopus use octopus123@yahoo.com as your public email address for customers? Nope, and we don’t want to either :-)

    Please add back the excellent Let’s Encrypt module in Octopus Cloud and route port 80 or just .well-known/acme-challenge/ to the relevant instance. Octopus Cloud…

  18. Allow the removal of the date filter from the audit display

    I can understand for performance reasons wanting to restrict the audit form, but it's incredibly frustrating to use the existing interface to find the creation date of an object when the date filter refuses to go away, and in fact seems to want to shrink to 1 month when wrestled with.

    I'm willing to wait a few seconds for the information I want. Just show it to me.

  19. chained deployment to specific targets

    If you deploy to specific targets in an environment but one the steps triggers a chained deployment, the chained deployment will target all hosts in the environment. It would be better if the chained deployment continued to target only the specific hosts that were originally chosen.

  20. Create/write a file to a location

    Sometimes we just want to write out a simple file to disk. For example writing out a basic text file to a location. While you could have a basic template in an repo sometimes you want to write out a straight file to disk with the normal support for variable substitution. Example, write a file to a queue or change a basic configuration file.
