  1. Dashboard re-order ability

    One can reorder the environments any way that they see fit while looking at the environment page, but is there a way to reorder the dashboard page instead of the default alphabetical order?

    No.

    I would love to be able to put the more important project(s) on the top and the lesser ones below it. I also do not want to change the name to reflect this by putting "A_blah", "B_blah".

    So I would like to be able to have a re-order ability for the dashboard.

    • Better view of un-tenanted deployments

      Currently when I add tenants to the project an overview is changing. Without tenats I see deployment for al channels. After adding even one tenant overview changes so I see un-tenanted deployments as single bar. And I see no option to see previous overview which were very helpful. We are working with feature branches with a lot of different channels and now it is hard to check which version is on which environment. It will be great if I can see old overview after clicking "un-tenanted" icon.

      • Filter process view by channel

        We would like to be able to filter a process by Channel, to only show the steps that apply to one channel.

        For some of our projects, we have a process that only requires a few steps for one channel.

        To make it more apparent what the process is, it would be helpfull to filter the process steps shown by process.

        • Search for user

          The users view that pages user into n number of pages, makes it a hassle to find a user when you have 100 or more users.

          I would like to be able to search for a user, and search across username, displayname and email address.

          • Add ability to use run conditions for child steps

            The only way to specify a rolling deployment is by grouping several steps into one parent step.

            Child steps cannot specify any run condition (success, fail, variable) but some child steps run condition can be based on several factors controlled by run conditions.

            I already opened a discussion here: http://help.octopusdeploy.com/discussions/problems/55380-add-ability-to-use-run-conditions-for-child-steps

            • Step for docker package selection

              As of version 3.7.12 it is possible to use the "Transfer package" step and use the selected package on custom steps (e.g. push it to an s3 bucket).

              However, when it comes to docker "packages" the only way to select a docker feed is by using one of the 3 default docker steps.

              It would be nice to have a basic step which would allow us to select only the docker feed and have that step export the image+version (tag) to other steps.

              In my case, this would allow me control the deployment of a specific image using custom templates…

              • Prove a way to enforce steps be run consistently between environments

                Octopus Deploy does not currently enforce the completion of all steps in all environments. This leads to at least two scenarios that may not represent the desired workflow:

                1. Steps skipped in previous environments are not necessarily skipped in later environments
                e.g. a database script was not applied in Integration but was applied in User Acceptance Testing, when the intention was for User Acceptance Testing to have skipped the same steps that were skipped in Integration to ensure both environments are the same.

                2. Promotions can take place when steps have been skipped in previous environments
                e.g. a database script…

                • Make "Run on Octopus Server" a separate permission

                  As it is now if you can change the deployment process, you can also set scripts to run on the Octopus Server. We want people to be able to change the deployment process, but not to run scripts on the Octopus Server. A permission or feature-toggle to restrict that option would be great.

                  • Add "QueuedBy" system variable for obtaining user who has actually queued deployments

                    I'm getting persons username when receiving deployment status email from automatically triggered deployment (by Project trigger on machine becomes available event). In the email template i'm using Octopus.Deployment.CreatedBy.Username system variable to display user who has run deployment.
                    So in case of auto-triggered deployments I would like to get value "System" instead of some person's username (apparently one's who first has run the deployment manually).

                    Ref: http://help.octopusdeploy.com/discussions/problems/52736-octopusdeploymentcreatedbyusername-value-is-not-system-when-deployment-fired-by-project-trigger

                      • Improve Variable Substitution Feedback/Logging

                        Currently the information included in the logs, regarding variable substation is very limited:

                        Performing variable substitution on <filename>

                        This could be improved in a few ways:
                        - Add the number of variables substituted to the logs
                        - Include the variable, and value substituted as Verbose (Sensitive values replaced with stars)
                        - Add the variable names substituted to an Output variable; I could do my own lookup of the value, and email a report in a follow up script step

                        In the end, I'm just looking for some way to verify an integral part of deployments.

                        • Prompt Variable Validation (via Regex)

                          Often the valid set of values for prompt variables are limited. It would be great to be able to add a regex against which the value could be validated in the UI before executing the deployment

                            • Add Environment level Machine Policies

                              Currently machine policies are only able to be applied at the machine level. The idea is to set the policies at the environment level so they are applied to all machines within that environment. That would make it easier to manage groups of machines at a time, and would automatically apply policies to newly added machines. This could be helpful in auto-scaling scenarios.

                                Currently email notifications from subscriptions are created from a non-customizable template. It would be a great enhancement to be able to add more details in the email than what's already included in the template. For example, you may want to include the channel name that the relevant release is in.

                                  • Show step progression on dashboard

                                    It would be nice to be able to see step progression on the dashboard, not just the ajax spinner.

                                    Something like http://i.imgur.com/DG3QYYv.png

                                    • Allow audit items to display the actual Date/Time

                                      Currently the audit screen only shows when an item was deployed or changed with 'x days ago', 'x minutes ago' etc.

                                      It would much more useful to able to provide this information to an auditor (say when undergoing a SOC II audit) if this was the actual date/time.

                                      • Add Let's Encrypt support to the Certificates Library functionality

                                        I love the Let's Encrypt integration with the OD server. Setting up SSL for the server is so simple, and I don't even have to worry about renewals as this is taken care of for me.

                                        Now imagine this same functionality for all of your IIS sites.

                                        This is how I envision it could work

                                        - I go to Library > Certificates > Add certificate
                                        - I'm given the option of importing a cert (i.e. the current functionality), or I can chose to use Let's Encrypt
                                        - After picking Let's Encrypt, I'm prompted for a bit of info- domain, email…

                                        • to implement the following features

                                          I would like to suggest you to implement the following features in the product:
                                          - I would like to be able to remove a step from the process when view it;
                                          - I would like to have possibility to export step as JSON from the process when view it and create it easily from the copied JSON (just paste JSON to the text field and click Create button). Very useful when I copy some changes from one project to another;
                                          - I would like to get a statistics for the variable set or compiled list of all variables for the…
