  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.

    • Add ability to loop a deploy step where multiple roles and role scoped variables are present

      Have a scenario where I need to deploy the same package multiple times **on the same set of servers** under different custom directories and different IIS web applications. There are role scoped variables which get picked up for custom installation directory and also appsettings.

      I understand that the documentation under https://octopus.com/docs/key-concepts/machine-roles clearly states:

      "This means that the step will only execute on Tentacles with at least one of those roles. This does not mean that if the step is scoped to multiple roles that it will run for each role. Instead it will run that step for all machines that…

      • 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.

        • Allow for specific files that were added by OctoPackEnforceAddingFiles, to be excluded in package

          I cannot not use /p:OctoPackEnforceAddingFiles=True with MSBuild. This parameter is absolutely indispensable. It is not even an option.

          However I do not want all the files in the build to be included in the package.

          The nuspec file and the exclusions ability therein does not allow to exclude files that were added by OctoPackEnforceAddingFiles.

          The effect of this is that I can’t use one of the best features of Octo : deploying to IIS.

          Because of a few files that I can’t exclude from the build, I need to deploy to a folder, remove the files that I want, and…

          • 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

            • 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.

              • Project Variable Filter for Tenants

                I was wondering if there has been any thought into making a project variable filter/tag system by tenant. It seems like over time the project variable list could get quite long for large implementations. It would be nice if when setting up a project variable you could tag a tenant or tenants that it applies to. That way it would only show for those tenants. Otherwise it would take the default value for the other tenants. Or something to that effect.

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • Allow to mark a deployment step as mandatory (un-skippable)

                      Right now only manual intervention steps cannot be skipped during a custom deployment. It maybe good to be able to mark any step as unskippable.

                      • Allow wildcards in subscription fields

                        For installations with lots of things it would be helpful to filter subscription events by wildcards. For example, "Prod*" environments to include all production environments.

                          • 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…

                            • Support Required Variables

                              It would be great if my deployment failed if a variable was not available in a particular environment. Currently I place a PreDeploy.ps1 with checks for particular variables (not empty) and I'm wondering if there could be a better experience for specifying that certain (or all) variables must be provided if they are used from PowerShell or elsewhere. We've had issues where our deployment went green but a variable was missing in a particular environment.

                                • 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

                                  • 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…

                                    • Add option to disable package overwrites on upload

                                      When uploading a package, I have an option to overwrite if a package with the same name and version already exists.

                                      This is a security issue, because we can't guarantee anymore that a package deployed to Test, is the same as the one deployed to production, even though the version of the package is the same.

                                      I would suggest to add a server-wide option to disable package overwrites on upload.

                                        • Change the ReleaseEdit Role

                                          The ReleaseEdit Role permits for updating the release variables, but it also allows for editing the release version, the deployment package that it deploys, and the Release Notes.

                                          The ability to update the release variables should be a separate role, say: ReleaseUpdateVariables, from editing the release version and package versions.

                                          ReleaseEdit should cover updating the release version, and the deployment package version it deploys.

                                          I'd also suggest adding third role for updating the release notes: ReleaseupdateNotes for appending to (but not otherwise modifying) the release notes.

                                          The idea is that different user should be able to be responsible for updating…
