  1. Make variable list usable for configuring IIS bindings.

    When adding a binding to IIS in Octopus, you can only use seperate variable. Every binding needs a new variable. Some of our deployments have over 50 bindings. We create each binding separate. If we use a variable list only the last item of the list end up in de IIS binding. It would help us a lot if we could ad three generic bindings (Test, Acceptation, Production), en in the bindings use a variable list, containing all the IIS bindings.

    • 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…

      • Configure path package is deployed to

        Hi,

        I have set up Deployment process and everything works fine except one thing.
        I cannot find a way to edit step "zero" - downloading and unpacking of deployment package (nuget package).
        In our deployment we process multiple tenants on single environment.

        What Octopus currently does (this process seems automatic to me):
        - Downloads correct package version if its not already downloaded (this is ok)
        - Unpacks it into C:\Octopus\Applications\tenantName\Production\projectName\projectVersion (want to change this)
        - Then uses this folder as source of data (ok).

        I have TWO problems with this approach:
        1)
        while deploying on multiple tenants after ONE deploy…

        • promote a whole environment

          We have "major deployments". At this time we have to deploy all our applications (~ 70) at once. So it would be nice to have a possibility to deploy all projects from environment-1 to environment-2

          • Re-think the new UI! It is awful!!!

            To be honest I am not sure why you changed your UI. Other than a bug when adding variables, it was fairly good. My suggestion is that you need to put a lot more time into your UI. The UI for version 4 is awful, sorry but it is and the version 3 was much easier to use. It took me an hour to figure out that what I thought was a table header for the variable list was how you add a new variable, was not clear it was an input form. You hide way too many things, took…

              Hi Jason,
              Thanks for your feedback on the 4.0 UI overhaul. We had a few key aims as part of this release and one was to provide some consistency to the product. As I’m sure you have noticed, the save button was all over the place in the old (pre 4.0) Web Portal and was an issue of constant headache for our users. Moving all the actions to the 1 action bar at the top of a section felt like the right approach and so far has been met with positive comments by many users, despite the cheese move it may initially appear to be.

              One of our other goals was to provide an experience that scales well when our users are pushing octopus to its limits. Whether thats 1000’s of targets, steps or environments or just paragraphs of text that make up a description, we have had to consider…

            • 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.

              • Show Release Notes as a column directly on the Releases page for a product

                When you list the releases for a product you can see the Version and when it was assembled, but not the release notes. We have this connected to the git commit log so we easilly can see what is being deployed. Right now we have to click each item to see this information

                • Display Deployments Requiring Manual Intervention for a Release

                  When viewing details for a particular release, we used to be able to see any active deployments that are currently awaiting manual intervention. It seems this is no longer visible in Octopus 4.0. In order to view this, we need to go back to a project's "Overview" to see any deployments that have pending intervention steps to approve. This complicates the workflow.

                    Nithin are you talking about in the release page? If so then the deployment status should already be visible, including if it's paused for manual intervention (icon looks like an eye). Could you log a ticket through supportoctopus.com along with screenshots so that we can investigate?

                      • Environments screen to filter by Tentacle or Calamari updates

                        In v4, it would be helpful to know how many machines in each environment need Calamari and/or Tentacle upgrades (possibly next to the health indicators on the right?)

                        As of right now, customers can't see (from this overview) which servers need updates.

                        At a minimum, we need an API filter that allows us to search for servers that need Tentacle or Calamari updates.

                          • Scope variable to Package/Step

                            We have a project existing out of 60 packages.
                            In every package the in a appsetting in the config file.
                            We now need to have in 1 specific package another value for the appsetting.
                            Now we need to create a new appsetting in the config file and do some coding to read another appsetting for that 1 specific package.
                            If it would be possible to scope a variable to a spefic step/package would be nice.

                            • Separate Web Portal From Application

                              To keep in line with security best practices...

                              It would be incredibly useful to be able to separate the Web Portal from the Application server.

                              This would allow for greater control and will enable "physical" separations of duties for the administration/configuration items from the deployment items.

                              • 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.

                                  • Octopus Server, One Click Update / Upgrade option

                                    We use JetBrains TeamCity along with Octopus Deploy and TeamCity included a "one click" upgrade process for point releases in their web application. This is a very useful feature.

                                    Just in the last 3 weeks 8 minor point releases have been made available for install.

                                    I suggest Octopus includes a similar option for simple updating of the Octopus Server to the latest available release. We see the notification in the web interface right now, but a method to click and have it backup recommended configurations and update the installation would allow our Engineering teams to keep the instance more current.

                                    • First level support for HashiCorp Terraform

                                      I would love to see built-in support for Terraform (https://www.terraform.io/). Deployment steps for each Terraform operation like "plan" and "apply" and also a Terraform backend plugin for storing state.

                                      • Implement "next step" and "previous step" buttons

                                        The idea is to have two buttons on the top of our process steps which allows navigating easily between steps process.

                                        • Color Coordinate

                                          Different color for version #'s on different environments.

                                          For instance right now they are both green even if the version numbers are different.

                                          So Test v1.0.1 | Prod v1.0.0 both show green but at a quick glance on the dashboard it would be nice that Prod would be a different (vague) color to signify it is a different version that is on test.
