  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. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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?

  6. Add a data field of Team Owner or Manager (of type User) into the Octopus Teams settings tab.

    Due to SOX Auditing, we have a bi-yearly user access review of everyone who has deployment permissions. We have automated this with Powershell and the Octopus API so that we can generate an excel spreadsheet to upload to Sharepoint for Managers to approve individual user access.

    However, this has created a problem, there is no easy way to mark Team Ownership or a Team Manager as a simple user data field in the Teams' settings so that we could populate Sharepoint with the name of the person responsible for approving each users access.

    Having a Team Owner or Team Manager…

  8. Ability to limit updates to specific variable sets to specific groups

    We'd like the ability to lock down a specific variable set so that only specific teams can update the values in that variable set. We want to be able to have variables that multiple teams consume but only admins can set the values.

  9. Octopus Server on Linux directly

    As a Octopus Administrator I should be able to install Octopus Server directly on Machine with Linux operating system.

    Now, there is only version with Linux container and in some cases docker can be unnecessary abstraction layer, that need to be maintained with OS machine.

  10. Create deployment step skipped or failed as subscription-eligible events

    We would like to get notices when any deployment process either skips a step (for instance because there are no available targets) or when a step fails.

  11. add a changelog link to the "New Release" notification

    Currently the "New Release" notification pop-up only contains the new release version number and a download link.

    It would be infinitely more helpful if there were also a link to the changelog page.
    The link cloud be generated from the current version of the octopus server along with the latest release version to show the user the changes that will be included in this new release of Octopus.

    Thanks!

  12. Include an environment variable or another method to set the server url for the docker images

    At the moment there is no way to set the server url without going into configuration -> nodes in the GUI. For Ingress this is required to be first set up before requests are directed to the URL. It would be good to have the variable or some way to do this before container start without accessing the GUI. See: https://help.octopus.com/t/server-url-env-variable-for-docker/26543/2

  13. Allow runbooks to be configured not to run immediately after a missed scheduled trigger

    Runbooks can use triggers to start on schedule. If the OctopusDeploy service stops for any reason, a runbook that has missed its schedule will run as soon as OctopusDeploy become available. This is suboptimal where the missed trigger was powering off some VMs overnight and runs during your core hours, for example. This behavior should be configurable, much like the "Run task as soon as possible after a scheduled start is missed" setting in Windows scheduled tasks.

  14. Allow Users to Define Their Own Default Task Log View Settings

    When viewing a task log you offer 3 settings:
    1. Expand
    2. Log Level
    3. Log tail

    They default to Interesting, Info, Last 20

    In my position, those settings are almost always unhelpful - I have to change the selections with every task log I view, and in my position I view a ton of them a day.

    I'd like the option to set my own personal Task Log View default values so that when I click on a task log my preset selections are automatically loaded and the task log is in my preferred state on page load.

  15. Depreciate Variable Sets

    Variable sets cannot be deleted until all project, release, and I assume runbook references are removed. Since it can take a long time for releases to age out, a Depreciate flag that can be set once all Project references are removed would be great. This flag would prevent adding the Variable Set to projects (and hidden from the selector).

  16. Create a customizable drop down list for favorite projects (per user).

    We have hundreds of projects in dozens of project groups in Octopus. As a DevOps engineer I have occasion to work with many projects over the whole system.

    The filter by project and project groups are helpful. But what would really be helpful is the ability to go into a project - hit a * to make it a favorite, then on the dashboard tab have a drop down list of all my favorites that would take me directly to those projects.

  17. Create RPM packages for Calamari

    For Tentacle deployment targets on Linux, you make RPMs clearly available: https://octopus.com/docs/infrastructure/deployment-targets/linux/tentacle

    However, for SSH deployment targets on Linux, there is no RPM (or apt, etc...) for the Calamai package. Most Linux admins (rightfully) like to manage deployment targets with Puppet profiles, or similar, and the idea of manually installing Calamari directly on the servers creates configuration drift, and goes against most devops principles.

    Could you make binary packages available for Calamari like you do for Tentacle?

  18. BUG: Resizing web browser deletes unsaved form data

    When filling in a form in Octopus Deploy, for example to add a deployment step or to add new variables, if you resize the window all unsaved data is lost.

    Whie I acknowledge this is unlikely to affect many people, I've hit this a few times when taking some screenshots for documentation purposes. It's fairly annoying.

    I think it happens when the page switched from one responsive layout to another. For example, when the project sub-menu hops from the left side of the screen to the top of the screen.

  19. Ability to set application URLs for each environment, allowing linking from dashboard

    It would be great if the Octopus dashboard, which displays the current releases of each application in each environment, contained links to the applications in the specific environments. E.g. if the box displaying details of the most recent deployment of Application X to Environment Y also contained a link to that app in that environment

    We presently maintain this info outside of Octopus, in Wiki pages etc, but it’s a pain to maintain.
    It would be great if this was directly available in Octopus, because the matrix of applications to environments is already there. Forcing users to access the links…

  20. Cloud: Support my local time zone

    I would expect there to be a place in setup where I could enter my local time zone. Then subsequently all dates/times would display in my current time zone. This would include dashboard dates/times as well as Release Versioning.
