  1. Octopus server currently supports Explicit SSL in it's SMTP Configuration. It would be good if it could also support Implicit SSL.

  3. I have been deploying and updating Octopus Server using DSC, which works very well.

    To to this I need the installer download link, easy to get from the downloads page, and the msi product code so that DSC can check the installed version.

    Currently this means I need to download the installer to my machine just so I can open it and find the product code. If you published the msi product code like you publish the MD5 hash. It would make my DSC update workflow simpler.

  4. It would be nice to select a project group that is being worked on and seeing all the child items within it on every tab.example you login you see the dashboard, select the project group (filter I guess) once the project group is selected you only see items related to the project when you click the environments you see only the filtered project groups/projects and environments associated.

    This makes management simpler and internal auditing of an application or suite of applications simpler

  5. Currently a server is said to be offline and is highlighted red, even though it's online with just drive space issues. I'd like to see these highlighted differently, like in orange so I know what the issue is.

  6. I was hoping the server support in 3.3 would do this, unfortunately 3.3 will only run PowerShell scripts from the Octopus Server. It would be great if the Octopus Server could have its own inbuilt tentacle for deploying packages that don't require a footprint on the target machine. SQL Server deployments and MSDeploy deployments are the obvious examples.

  7. Hi
    In the previous version of Octopus (2.6) the 2 following properties were availabe:
    LastModifiedOn
    LastModifiedBy
    it sounds like there has been a decision to suppress them as part of version 3.x.
    As admin I find this auditing information very useful, and if anything I think that auditing should improve (it is very hard to track changes at the moment) - so I suggest to bring it back.
    See more info:
    http://help.octopusdeploy.com/discussions/questions/7091-api-change-from-26-to-3213-missing-information
    Thanks
    Nir

  8. At the moment, I have to dump the $octopusParameters to the output on the PreDeploy script.

    It would be handy to have a new tab that lists all those parameters.

    -- TeamCity has a similar concept where it lists parameters used for a build

  9. If an OD setup uses a large number of Environment Variables, it can be difficult, and slow to use them for reference.

    i.e. #{EnvironmentPath}-#{Suffix}-#{SecondSuffix} isn't particularly helpful, especially if

    EnvironmentPath = #{ServerLocation}-#{ServerType}-#{TenantInstance}

    And if it nests further, it becomes incredibly slow to see how it will resolve on a deployment, short of deploying.

    If there was a way, during snapshots, or ideally through a "show resolved for : " button, then this would make it easier to reference urls from OD2.

  11. In the process definition for a project it would be really good if the sub steps under a step with sub steps could inherit the environment settings from the first step – at the moment you have to set the environments on each sub step.

  12. I'd like to see an option added to the Configuration -> Backup tab to send an email to users in the "Octopus Administrators" team if a backup fails.

  13. We have a need to setup a Production Release Day Only team, and right now we add users to that on production release day, and then have to remember to remove those users, because we don't want them to have access to production forever. It would be nice if a team could be created that has a configurable number of days where any users in that team that have been in that team for more than that configuration would automatically be deleted from the team.

  14. As the number of scripts in the library grows it will be helpful to add more structure to it using categories and/or tags.

    Add a "category" and "tag" field to the metadata for each script in the Octopus Deploy Library.

    Change the UI to group scripts by Category.

    Initial categories could include:-

    Workflow (Wait, ...)
    Windows
    NT Service
    IIS
    Database
    Test (NUnit, Http request, ...)
    Data Collection (Disk space, CPU, ...)
    Integrations (Slack, Hipchat, ...)
    Network Environment (Load Balancers, CDNs, etc.)

  15. As I've gotten more and more step templates, I've realized that there are some of the step templates that I'd like to rename to make it easier to "group" like ideas. The problem here is that as I refine these, each renaming creates a new version. The same would be true of the description. This doesn't seem like something I should be running out to each process to update especially since the name wouldn't update anyways.

  16. Something I would like to see is user description. We have a few service users and since there is no description we are using a mix of display name and a page in confluence to describe their roles and scope.

    And what about having a place to store API keys? Only available to certain roles, let's say system administrators.

  17. I'm working in an environment where web servers are sitting in a DMZ that only allows incoming HTTP traffic - no outgoing traffic at all is permitted without going through numerous administrative channels to get ports opened. I do however have full administrative access to the server only.

    I could deploy a tentacle in this scenario if I had some kind of web resource that acted as a proxy for a listening tentacle. Octopus would manage the tentacle via <site>/octopus-deploy.axd instead of through the usual listen port.

  18. Disabling a feature from a step should either remove the configuration (clear out the fields) or provide a visual queue that there is configuration that that will affect the step that is not visible.

    I had a step performing an xml transformation. I removed the transformation feature, created a release and deployed but the transformation still occurred. I had to re-add the feature and clear the transformation fields to stop the step from performing it.

  19. On the tentacle manager screen, we currently see the 'Home directory' and 'Logs directory'. How about also showing the default 'Application directory' to which the tentacle deploys?

  20. on the dashboard, if you hover a deploy, you will get more information on that deploy in a little info-box. We would like to see the same behaviour but for the environments. If you hover "dev" it will list you what servers it contains, and a little icon for if it's up and running or disabled/not healthy)
