  1. 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.

    • 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.

            It would be very useful to be able to Clone a Channel.

              When working with a large number of projects & environments, it easy to get lost if you are scrolling horizontally and verticle, If you were looking for a specific project in a particular environment.

                • 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.

                    • Style editable text boxes to have some visual cues as to what is clickable

                      Text boxes (for example, the notes on manual intervention steps) give no indication of which part is clickable to focus the text box. The obvious places such as at the top of the white area or in line with the grey text that looks like a placeholder both do precisely nothing

                      • parallel processing

                        We're using the octopus little bit specific way for copy databases from the Live environment to staging, dev test.. etc. including anonymization and related steps. The most important functionality is the parallel processing.

                        Anyway, the body of PowerShell processing is in our case same.
                        Just every parallel running task is responsible to process only particular part.
                        It leads to following configuration:

                        • Audit on step template

                          Today we had an situation that somebody changed shared step template. We were more than surprised when we found out that there is no audit on step templates and we were not able to check who messed up. Please add audit there.

                          • Introduce a 'stable' release feed for Octopus Server - monthly release

                            Hi.
                            I've started to look for an easy way to figure out which release of Octopus Server that can be considered stable, since my colleagues are depending on the software and they aren't pleased the amount of bugs that has been coming and going.

                            I've been helping out on the community template

                            http://library.octopusdeploy.com/step-templates/4b3a1f09-1827-41bb-88a4-894c6317922b/actiontemplate-upgrade-octopus-server

                            which lets the Octopus Server easily do rollbacks, in case of major bugs.

                            Michael Noonan suggested in this thread
                            https://help.octopus.com/t/overall-quality-of-octopus-server-updates-are-integration-tests-being-applied-to-octopus-server-upgrades/19214

                            that some customers uses the latest version of the previous feature release to make sure Octopus is semi stable. I'm very aware that even a stable version…

                            • 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.

                              • 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.

                                • Update-to-date Step Templates

                                  When setting up a step template, if a previously added, and configured feature has been removed from the Step Template, after which all the process steps that are using it, are updated. (Under the "Usage" section)

                                  I suggest you remove it from the applied features when running a deployment on a release. It's the WORST to debug something that has hidden configuration features applied.

                                    The idea is to have two buttons on the top of our process steps which allows navigating easily between steps process.

                                      DevOps Bashboard. An at-a-glance dashboard you can stick in a monitor with big numbers and charts showing all sorts of data. Could be useful for bright red error alerts, show statistics, maybe sticky a project overview. This would be a guest/read-only access account.

                                      • Allow OctopusDeploy to respect group membership in resource domain

                                        A typical scenario is described here:

                                        https://octopus.com/docs/administration/authentication-providers/active-directory-authentication

                                        (the diagram at the bottom with a one way trust)

                                        Per my thread with Octopus support, Octopus will not respect group membership of DomainA. This would be useful where the resource domain is managed by one group but the user domain (DomainB) is a shared corporate resource.

                                        Thank you for your time.

                                        • 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.
