  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…

    • 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?

      • Support Azure Service Fabric Mesh

        The Service Fabric Mesh deployment model is in public preview since a couple of months back and GA is expected this spring. Being mainly ARM template and container based, the SF Mesh deployment is probably possible to accompish by custom scripts today, but good out of the box support in OD would be very valuable.

        • 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…

          • Integrate Octopus deploy project variables with Azure Key Vault

            So sensitive project variables will be referenced from Azure Key Vault instead of being stored in octopus.

            https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/key-vault

            3357461 - 'Azure Resource Manager Key Vault support' was only about ARM template Key Vault support.
            17973586 - 'Integrate Octopus deploy with secrets managment system Vault' is similar to this issue only for https://www.vaultproject.io

            This idea is similar to
            https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/vsts/build-release/concepts/library/variable-groups?view=vsts#link-secrets-from-an-azure-key-vault-as-variables

            • 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:

                • Add security secret cleansing to Artifacts

                  When Octopus attaches Artifacts it does not screen the for any secrets or credentials as such these can often compromise accounts etc that are used to create that Artifact, depending on what it is and how its made.

                  It would be great if before Octopus attached the Artifact it looked to screen and cleanse the Artifact of potential Secrets there fore reducing the risk of it been used for security exploits etc.

                      • Define Manual intervention on an Environment

                        I'd like to assign a manual intervention, or "Approval gate", at the environment level, independent of project.

                        We have many projects that can be deployed to our environments. The lifecycles these projects can deploy to have a mix of Dev, CI, Test and Production environments. Some important environments require approval before anything can be deployed to them (e.g. QA, PreProd, Production).

                        At the moment I have to add manual intervention steps to every project that could be deployed to those environments. I also have to make the intervention steps are conditional based on the environments they're going to (i.e. I…

                        • Obfuscate sensitive variables in deployment log in variable substitution

                          We're using various steps for deployment ('Deploy a package', 'Deploy to IIS') which both have variable substitution options to substitute variables in Web.config/App.config.

                          During deployment, i've noticed that these substitutions are logged. However, sometimes i see that our sensitive variables are being logged here at 'verbose' level. Other sensitive (and also non-sensitive) variables are obfuscated.

                          It seems that the deployment process decides by itself based on the name of the variable. In my opinion, the sensitive option of the variabel should be considered here as well.

                          An example of what we've got currently:
                          We've got an appsetting in our app.config,…

                          • Exclude process steps when you are creating release

                            Exclude process steps when you are creating release not before deploying release. Why?

                            We have multiple projects and when we are deploying to higher environments we are actually deploying "wrapper project" which contains releases of projects.

                            In each release, we don't always deploy all the projects so we want to exclude them from deploying.

                            We know that we can set up "deploy only if the version is greater". But If we exclude some of deploy release steps then we have a better overview of what actually has been deployed.

                            We just want to skip boring manually clicking each time before…

                            • Filter Environments shown in each Project Group on the Dashboard

                              Filter the environments show in each project group on the dashboard. Only environments included in the lifecycles/channels for each project in the project group should be shown.

                              We have many environments but most are only used by a few project groups. Some project groups only deploy to a single environment. This requires us to horizontally scroll far to the right past environments which aren't capable of being deployed to in order to see what is deployed.

                              • Allow segregated package repositories

                                In a lot of companies there is a clear separation between development packages and packages approved for production. Systems like Sonatype Nexus and Artifactory provide hugely powerful examples of these catering for a wide variety of requirements, but in most cases you need a simple set of requirements:
                                * The ability to push packages to one (dev) repo
                                * The ability to promote packages to another (prod) repo
                                * The ability to force certain environments to pick from a certain repo

                                This should be a relatively simple improvement to Octopus' very awesome but very simple package management capabilities.

                                  • Highlight the variable Snapshot difference while updating the release snapshot

                                    Whenever there is a change in the variable after the creation of the release, we used to get warning saying "Release Snapshot has been changed". But we do have only one option to update the entire release without knowing what has been changed. It would be great if you have any way to find/highlight the variables and their values that will be updated when I click "Update Variables" in the release Snapshot section. It will minimize the risk when it's comes to updating the snapshots for production deployment and it will give a transparent view of what changes are done…

                                    • Allow machine policies to be set for Azure WebApps

                                      I would like to be able to customize the Health Check of Azure WebApps deployment targets. For example I would expose an endpoint `/health` that must be queried on an ~hourly basis. In the case of a Tentacle this is possible using Machine Policies, but I can't assign one to a Azure WebApp deployment target.

                                      • Deployment Pipeline as Code

                                        I would like to see the "pipeline as code approach" applied to projects. The main idea is to be possible to define the process of a project using a yml file in a source code repository or package.

                                          I would like to receive an email notification when a PRODUCTION deployment is taking place.
