  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • 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…

        • 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.

            • Add last date modified field to Variable Views

              Add a last date modified field on variables. I think it would be very useful, so it's evident where regression may have occurred between releases and so on if someone makes an update in a group access setting. I know the audit table is useful in this regard, but takes significantly more digging to parse. If you really want to get fancy, show the date, and then if you click it, an audit popup of the last n times it was edited, what date, and by whom.

              • per-project lifecycle notes

                I would like to be able to provide notes as to WHY a project is using a specific lifecycle.

                In my case, some of the systems being integrated with only exist in TEST/PROD (not DEV). I'd like to note the systems that don't exist in DEV so that someone doesn't incidentally try to switch the lifecycle.

                • channel level permissions

                  We would like the option to manage permissions for which channels can be used by certain team members within a project. We have DB deployment specific channels stored within the same project as our app deploy, but do not want devs to be able to release on the DB deploy channel. Only DBA's should be able to.

                  • Specialized audit interface to easily track the changes to variables over time

                    It would be useful to be able to track changes to a specific variable over time across all variable sets and projects. These kinds of changes are available now in the audit logs for projects and variable sets, but are very cumbersome to sort through if you are looking for a specific variable.

                    I would propose an interface that lets you filter the audit log to a specific variable name (potentially utilizing wildcards as well) and limits the view to the values of that variable along with the scope and modified date. You should also be able to filter/sort by…

                    • Improve health warnings display to show upgrades

                      I generally like the new UI in version 4, but there are some oversights which are quite annoying.

                      This one in particular has caused me to stop updating tentacles. When a tentacle needs a Calamari or tentacle update, there is simply no way to see this without drilling down all the way into the connectivity tab for that specific tentacle! If I click upgrade all tentacles in an environment, I no longer have any idea what's going to happen before I click it! The old overview was much more informative here. Please add some type of information or new icon…

                      • 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.

                        • Update the Octopus Integrity check to ignore Azure SQL Replication Schemas

                          Hi,

                          We are using an Azure SQL DB which which is geo replicated to meet our DR requirements. As part of this configuration Azure adds two additional schemas to the DB (DSS and TaskHosting) presumably to keep track of the internal replication state.
                          However this does cause the Octopus Integrity check to fail as it is not expecting to find these tables on the DB.

                          I have also noticed that during upgrades (from 3.X to 4.x) it tries and fails to remove these tables which isn't causing any issues we can see at the moment but could cause issues down…

                            • Link tenants-tags to project

                              In many cases not all tenant tags sets will be used for project deployments. Either because different projects use different tags sets or because some tag-sets are used for different purposes.

                              It would be great to be able to configure which tag-sets to display on the tenants selection section (Octopus 4.*) of the deployment page, allowing for a drastic reduction of display space and clutter when using this section.

                                  • Ability to add/remove projects to included projects from an existing project page

                                    When in a project, regardless of what page (overview, process, variables etc.) I'd like the ability to add or remove this project to my filtered projects (dropdown on menu bar). Rather than having to go to the Dashboard->Filtering

                                    Octopus 3.16.5

                                    • Configuration to synchronously load pages.

                                      After upgrading to the new UI (v4.1.0) I can no longer effectively use the browser's ctrl+F 'search' to search for e.g. variable names in the variable set lists as not all items are being loaded. You have to scroll down to load all the items on the page and then search for your item. Using ctrl+F is the quickest/easiest way of searching on the page. Please make a configurable option to switch to SYNC loading mode of pages as the performance gain of loading 100-200 rows asynchronously (on demand) isn't worth compromising on usability in my case.

                                      • from the deployment target / Connectivity view provide a way / link to see the logs of the last health check

                                        It would be helpful from this screen to see the logs of the last health check , esp when there are warnings/ errors.

                                        • Filter users

                                          The filter on the users screen only filters by name/email. It would be nice to be able to, at a glance, filter and get the current active users, or inactive ones, or to filter down to non-service account/service accounts.
