  1. Display operating system version information on the Deployment Targets page

    It would be useful to see what operating system and potentially which .net framework versions are installed on a deployment target. I've got a variety of different server versions and in order to pick a baseline .net framework version I need to work out the oldest OS.

    • Allow retention policies for packages only

      Retention policies are great because our storage usage is getting insane with our hundreds of projects. Retention policies aren't being used because the release history/audit trail of previous releases is considered too valuable to remove.

      Implement a package-only retention policy where old packages can be automatically removed, but without the need to delete associated releases first.

      • It would be convenient if the Tenant had a Description field for explanatory text.

        It would be convenient if the Tenant had a Description field for additional text describing the purpose of the Tenant. (Much like the Projects that have a Description field to provide extra info.)

        • 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.

          • Default channel should be configurable

            when we have channels, you can select to group by channels or no grouping. We want it possible to per project or per user to be configurable what grouping to use.

            • 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.

              • export custom role permissions

                We have a use-case whereby we need the same permission sets for a custom role across multiple instances of Octopus. So when setting up a new Octopus instance it would be great to be able to export that custom role from one instance and apply it to the other.

                • Synchronize external security groups task should ignore users that are disabled in check,

                  Currently task "Synchronize external security groups" flags all non-existant users with a warning/error. This is the case even if the user has been disabled. the check should do either: Ignore user if disabled and not in "AD" or report error if user exists in "AD" but is disabled in octopus.

                    • White background behind logos

                      I added over 60 logos in an earlier version of octopus, many had white backgrounds rather than transparent, now they all look a bit off against the pale grey background.

                      Ok ... this is a tiny thing but thought I'd mention it.

                      • Package Library Wildcard Search

                        When searching for a Package in the Library permit the use of wildcards to optimise the searches.

                        We have prefixed our packages with the names of our clients and it would be great to view all packages where acme* would return all acme packages

                        • Add the ability to group tenants

                          I think it would be a good idea to have the option of grouping tenants for the purpose of organisation and not deployment:

                          * A group does not have the functionality other than to group items
                          * Grouping is optional and you would always be able to interact with tenants in the same way you do now
                          * Groups have a name, description and maybe an image
                          * A group can contain tenants and/or other groups
                          * Tenants do not need to be in a group
                          * Being in a group does not functionally affect the tenant

                          The scenario:

                          • Filtering tasks for Success with Warning

                            The Tasks screen has various filters, but the appears no way to filter to display only the Successful task that had warnings. I was to be able to audit warnings periodically to uncover common flake issues and maybe address them.

                            This is using v2018.3

                            • Tenanted Variables

                              After upgrading to this new version of Octopus, with the new UI, the configuration of tenanted variables became very counter-intuitive, it's very heavy while loading multiple projects and the color pallet makes it even harder to understand which environment is which, but the color pallet it's an issue in general with all of the UI of this new version, it's very confusing as you cannot distinguish easily between projects, tenants, variables, environments, etc.

                              • Additional Filteroptions for the dashboard

                                Currently the dashboard can get quit full if you have a lot of applications even if you sort filter them by project. It should be possible to filter the dashboard by more optiones then just project.
                                Ideal filteroptions would be Timestamp of deployment, Timeframe for deyploments, environment, other tags like traget roles.

                                • Set tenant "Common Variables" per environment

                                  As of Octopus 2018.2.3, I'm experiencing a limitation for defining variables per tenant and environment.

                                  The current ability to define variable templates per project is nice (so we can change the value per environment as the project is deployed to those environments). However, it would be nice to have the ability to define a common variable template that is shared across all projects in the deployment per tenant, but can change per environment.

                                  I understand this can easily be done via variable sets, but it would be nice to be able to define everything in one place--not simply dividing configured…

                                        • 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.
