  1. Add schedulable Tentacle and Calamari Update

    Hi team,

    Our deployment usually happen in a short off business hour window. However, the Calamari update by default will happen on deployment time and it can sometimes take half hour to finish. Admittedly, we can workaround this by manual update or wrote and schedule our mock deployment. They all are not elegant enough. Please consider adding this feature in.

  2. Calculate estimated completion time on the server

    Currently the estimated completion time is displayed in the Octopus UI. If I'm understanding the response I got on the support forms correctly that value is calculated in the client and not pulled from the server. It would be really useful that that value was calculated on the server and the estimated completion time was exposed as an Octopus variable.

  3. Add Deployments link to Worker View

    Add Deployments link to Worker View like what exists for deployment targets

    Deployment target link path example: /app#/Spaces-1/infrastructure/machines/Machines-xxxx/deployments

  4. Cost of Azure App Service targets should be per-server, not per-service

    Octopus Deploy penalises you for using PaaS resources over IaaS.

    We currently use VMs which are capable of hosting many web services and only consume 1 deployment target on our licence. If you were to convert that same VM to an Azure App Service, you would consume far more licences for the same server power, which sucks.

    e.g.

    A single Virtual Machine hosting 15 web apps in IIS costs only 1 deployment target

    A single App Service Plan hosting 15 web services costs 15 deployment targets

    TL;DR; Azure App Service Plan should consume 1 deployment target regardless of how many…

  5. Allow structured variabel replacement in the Upgrade a Helm-Chart step

    This would be useful for replacing values especially in the values-file from Chart Package or Additional Package. With this feature we don't need to have variable replacement syntax in our source-files.

  6. Deployment Email Preferences by User

    Allow each individual determine what deployment emails they want to receive. Users on multiple teams, or large deployment teams, are bombarded with hundreds emails a day. Giving the user the ability to tell the system they only want to receive failures, or no emails at all, would provide a better user experience. Alternatively, if this is not possible, allowing the system to have a single designated email for deployment notifications. This would allow the users to designate something like a Teams Channel to receive the notifications, and cut down on the amount of emails being sent in general.

  7. Upload artifacts via UI

    Please add support for uploading artifacts also via the user interface.

    Uploading reports/approval documents or other files to a release is currently not possible via an upload button. We have to do a workaround using a script that uploads files from a specific folder or using the API to attach files to a release.

    Especially during Octopus approval steps people need to upload documents.

  8. Allow variable set assignment through variable set

    Currently when a new variable set is created, it has to be included in projects individually. When there are many projects that should include the variable set, it would be much more convenient if the set could be included in projects via the 'usage' tab.

  9. I need to Set a Project variable from a PowerShell step so that i can use the variable in an arm template parameter file as a substitution

    I need a step A that set a project level variable #{COLOUR} from powershell and/or bash such that when I run an arm template step within the same deployment the parameter file correctly substitutes the value of #(colour} during the arm template deploy.

  10. Allow Helm chart external feeds that support OCI

    Amazon ECR supports pushing Open Container Initiative (OCI) artefacts to repositories. This includes Helm charts.

    However, Octopus does not support pulling Helm charts from OCI sources.

    I'd like to see this support added.

  11. Add support for Keyfactor (Security and SSL) Certificate management

    We use keyfactor (https://www.keyfactor.com/platform/certificate-lifecycle-automation/) for Certificate lifecycle Automation. It would be great if Octopus could integrate with this keyfactor to allow for issuance, renewal, inventory, import and storage of new certificates.

  12. Built-in Azure App Service/Function Restart

    I find that deployments to Azure Functions and standard app services will occasionally fail due to files being locked. This usually requires stopping the app service, re-running the deployment, and then restarting the function or app.

    This can be scripted with Powershell, but since this is such a common scenario, I’d love a checkbox built into the Azure App Service step that provides this ability. Something like “Stop App Service prior to deployment and restart after deployment”.

  13. Add the ability to disable specific environments to all but system administrators

    When we're doing mass maintenance to an entire environment, it would be useful to be able to disable non-admins from doing things to that environment, and display a banner (e.g."Deployments to production are disabled while servers are being re-racked") without stopping activity in other environments.

    Looking for something much like the system-wide maintenance mode, except environment specific.

  14. Please support deployment to Azure Cloud Sevice (Extended Support) targets

    Microsoft opened up a preview for ARM base Azure Cloud Service, which is probably hinting on them moving away from a Classic cloud service deployment model:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cloud-services-extended-support/overview
    Please add support for this type of targets.

  15. Expose a generic OpenID Connect authentication provider

    Octopus Server already has a lot of oAuth/OpenID integrations built in (AzureAD, Okta, Google Apps etc) but all of them are provider-specific. It would be great to have a generic authentication provider for third-party identity servers (such as Keycloak) to expand on this even further. Considering all of the current implementations are already based on a common class (https://github.com/OctopusDeploy/OpenIDConnectAuthenticationProviders) I imagine this shouldn't require much work. Although generic provider could expose more customization on how to extract user information from ID token, for example. We are using AzureAD integration to cover this for now (Keycloak integration) and it…

  16. Add Migrate options to API Import

    First I want to say that the new API functionality added in latest versions is very appreciated especially the possibility to export/import project out of spaces. However we really miss the merge functionality when importing project from Non-prod octopus to Prod Octopus

    Our current automated procedure includes : Delete project-> Re-import Project-> Update prod variables

    Problems: It removes history and require a new release number in prod due to updated of variables.

    Addition to this feature requests includes: Exclusion of environment variables in export

  17. Grouping variables in Octopus UI

    As a project leader I should be able to group variables on Octopus UI. This can be just logical separation.

    This solve the problem with linked variables and help mange them.

    For example It could collapse elements that are in structure - for example: db.username and db.password can be collapse as elements of root db or by labeling variables and then can be filtered by using specific label, for example - db.

  19. Install Example using CloudFormation and ECS

    In the installation documentation there exists a helm chart example:
    https://octopus.com/docs/installation/octopus-in-container/octopus-server-container-linux

    Are there any existing examples of doing something similar, but using CloudFormation/Fargate/ECS to run the server + tentacles?

  20. Support sharing of variable sets and script modules across spaces

    https://help.octopus.com/t/feature-request-variable-sets-spanning-spaces/26948/4

    We have multiple teams and have so far been avoiding spaces because we have no way that we know of to share variables and scripts between teams in different spaces.

    We have a lot of shared configuration that we wants accessible by all and with only one source of truth. For example, we have many apps that need to add whitelisting for our build/deploy servers. We store that ip whitelist in an octo variable set so all project can access it. If I need to alter that whitelist I can be confident that if I change the values in…
