  1. Make Dashboard Interface Adjustable or Themeable

    With one of the latest updates, the Dasboard technology has been changes to React Virtualized Grids. We are running a bigger Project with a lot of services that are grouped up in the dashboard. With that new Technology, the scrolling performance and logic on the page got really weird. Sometimes the group is scrolling, sometimes the page. While attaching/detaching Deploy Versions sometimes a white area is shown while scrolling.

    In addition we had custom user styles applied by the browser Addon stylish to resize the grid in Dashboards as Element and Text sizes seem to be optimized for Tablets. Before…

    • 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

      • When deploying project containing Deploy Release step, allow previewing steps and excluding machines from child deployments

        Currently when deploying a project containing one or more Deploy Release steps (https://octopus.com/docs/deployment-process/coordinating-multiple-projects/deploy-release-step), there is no ability to preview the deployment steps that will be executed in the child deployment, nor the ability to exclude machines from the child deployment.

        It would be nice to surface this information on the create-deployment page of the parent project.

        • 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…

          • Create automatic release using external Package versions

            I would like to create automatic release version based on the package version from TFS or JFrog repository,Basically i would like to schedule the release creation and deploy to some environment . I would like to use the version number from the package rather create on its own? Any thoughts if this is already supported?

            • 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.

              • Automatic variable inclusion

                It would be great if variable sets included a checkbox that would enable it to be automatically included in all future projects. Default behavior should be unchecked by default.

                For us, projects are often created by the developers and enforcing certain variables, scoped to Production, would be very useful for regulatory purposes.

                For example, any deployment to Production requires the user to include a Change Control number. We currently have to remember to include a user prompted variable that is scoped to Production, in order to capture this. This configuration often get's missed when new projects are created.

                Whether through…

                • Support multi-package deploy steps

                  Allow package deploy steps to select multiple packages that are deployed in the selected order (with the ability to change the order). We have a website where we deploy a clean copy of a vendors files (makes upgrades easier), then we overlay different 3rd party modules and our solution into the same folder. These packages together create a whole website.

                  • 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.

                    • Deselect Tenants under Preview and customize

                      When deploying; If selecting "Include all applicable Tenants", and there is a issue with one of the included tenants you have to deselect all, and add them one by one.

                      I suggest that when "Include all applicable Tenants" is clicked, the possibility to deselect a specific under tenant under 'Preview and customize' tab would be much wiser.

                      • Scope Phases to Tenant Tags

                        It would be great if we could scope a Lifecycle Phase to a Tenant Tag.

                        The reason for this is to be able to Target a Phase to specific tenants. For example. When rolling out a release to production we want to limit the impact by doing a Phased roll out. The tenants in each Production Phase are deployed the same way.

                        Currently the only way to achieve this is to create a new Environment for each Phase. But this also means that every variable and process step that is scoped to the Production environment also needs to be updated…

                        • Enable reordering of Environments in a Phase

                          Currently to change the order of environment inside a Phase you need to remove the environment from the Phase and then add it back in the right order.

                          It would be great to add a reorder button

                          • Add variables substitution capabilities

                            We keep our deployment configurations in octopus variables and use json substitution the replace them on deploy time

                            This could be improved in a few ways:

                            - Use the json variables substitution feature on other step templates than deploy a package (for example: run a script)
                            - have to ability to substitute also yml files
                            - give a variable a null value, the only option now is tho give him empty string, which influence the code.

                                  • Add a map of Azure App Settings as an Azure feature

                                    Add a deployment feature to the Azure Web App step that maps Azure's AppSettings and Connection Strings to Octopus variables. It was suggested to use a script to do this on your blog post (https://octopus.com/blog/azure-functions), but this would be much more valuable as a built-in feature since it is such a common scenario.

                                    I've uploaded an example image of what I imagine the UI would look like to: https://imgur.com/a/BwL4Tuh

                                    • Create an Octopus Terraform Provider

                                      Like many others, we use Terraform to manage our cloud infrastructure and it would be great if we could create and manage our octopus setup in it too.

                                      This is a follow up to the question posted on the Octopus Help section: https://help.octopus.com/t/any-plans-for-an-octopus-terraform-provider/20853

                                      • Certificates are too restrictive for Tenants

                                        Currently if you choose "Include only in tenanted deployments" when adding a new Certificate to your library you are required to:

                                        A) Select all of the tenants to be associated with that Certificate
                                        B) Select a Tenant Tag to associate with the cert

                                        This is restrictive. Why can't all Tenants just have access to the Certificate? When you only do Tenanted deployments you have to remember to tag the newly created tenant or go back to the cert and add them to the list. Its cumbersome to maintain.

                                        There should be a toggle for ALL tenants on the cert.

                                        • Allow defining an explicit order for prompted variables

                                          At the moment (at least to my knowledge) the order in which prompted variables are shown is dependent on the variable name (ordered alphabetically).

                                          It would be really cool if there was a possibility to give prompted variables an explicit order so that we can control in which order they appear in a simpler manner. For example it would be cool if one could just set a "priority" value for a prompted variable. This "priority" could be an integer and the prompts could then be ordered by this priority in descending order.

                                          Unfortunately giving them names to achieve the correct…
