  1. Hi

    I'm using Octopus but the one thing i find a potential problem with is the ability to arbitrarily assign a machine to any role i type in.

    I would like to see the ability to have a 'machine' roles 'table' that needs to be setup before any machines can be added to a role.

    That way, machine roles can be managed (CRUD functionality).

    Thanks!

  2. Currently there is no way to know if a secure variable has been set or not. Often times larger companies rely on other departments (prod control, ops, etc) to set sensitive variables, whereas the developers set the install steps for their application. There is no way currently to know if a secure variable has been set when deploying to an environment.

  3. In our setup, TeamCity creates and deploys a package to the "Test" environment. Then upon approval, a specific package will be promoted (by a human) to higher level environments (i.e. QA and Prod).

    We need to write notes when doing so. i.e. Who approved it, etc.

  4. We intend using OD for multiple clients which have multiple environments each. It would be nice to be able to scope environments, roles etc to one or more specific projects or to have some kind of client scope.

  5. Allow running Execution Containers directly on a Kubernetes cluster without a configured worker.

    The blog post here describes how to run workers on a Kubernetes cluster: https://octopus.com/blog/kubernetes-workers However, this approach has some challenges because it uses a long-lived container on the cluster to do the work.

    It would be great if we could get an option to run ephemeral Execution Containers directly on a Kubernetes cluster without the need of a worker. Or, if instead of having long-lived worker containers on the cluster that directly run tasks, the workers only acted as a "broker", and tasks using that worker launched…

  6. 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.

  7. if we can have date filter in the task section then it will be ease to get the data for a particular time period.

  8. When setting up a project for the first time, I manually copy and paste variables from config files (appSettings and connectionStrings) and it would be useful if I could have them imported and set to the value from the config during setup or on first deployment to QA / first environment. Given a large number of variables, this will be where most time is spent during project setup.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. See https://help.octopusdeploy.com/discussions/problems/65644-selective-tentacle-upgrades-and-health-checks

    In v4 it should be possible to select the targets to health check or upgrade via the filters. For example, I may only want to run it against a certain environment or tenant or against a certain role.

    I feel there has been some regression from v4 here because you used to be able to control this by environment. Now it's all or a single machine and for large environments makes staged roll-outs of upgrades and updates extremely time consuming.

  14. For installations with lots of things it would be helpful to filter subscription events by wildcards. For example, "Prod*" environments to include all production environments.

  15. I've just installed the File System - Clean Directory step template from the community library and I'm getting the error listed here - https://github.com/OctopusDeploy/Library/issues/588

    It would be useful if the UI allowed me to choose an earlier version of the step template as I now can't use the imported version. This would also be a concern if I had just updated a step template and the new version didn't work for some reason, I have no way to go back to the previous version.

  16. The ReleaseEdit Role permits for updating the release variables, but it also allows for editing the release version, the deployment package that it deploys, and the Release Notes.

    The ability to update the release variables should be a separate role, say: ReleaseUpdateVariables, from editing the release version and package versions.

    ReleaseEdit should cover updating the release version, and the deployment package version it deploys.

    I'd also suggest adding third role for updating the release notes: ReleaseupdateNotes for appending to (but not otherwise modifying) the release notes.

    The idea is that different user should be able to be responsible for updating…

  17. As per https://octopus.com/blog/shattered

    SHA1 -> SHA256 upgrade is currently manual (or custom scripting). It would be good if Octopus could manage certificate regeneration on-demand, with an option to choose an appropriate, current cipher.

  18. Would like a way to list/view all deployment projects by Environments, Servers, Roles with links to each project and perhaps summary data showing how many projects fit this criteria and when was the last one deployed to this criteria and what was it. This added to the Deployment target screen or simply add hyperlinks to tags and server names throughout.

  19. Would be easier to clean up variable sets if we knew which projects were dependent upon them. Currently you have to go thru each project and see if a particular variable set is referenced. Maybe a new tab in on the variable set admin page which lists the project and step within the project that reference any variables from the set.

  20. To restrict a team to a specific project, the Project Groups is supposed to be left EMPTY, even though the PlaceHolder text says "Any Project Group".

    A better UI design would be to have a box of Projects/Groups, where the autocomplete will include both groups (as "ProjectGroup*" or "ProjectGroup - All Projects") and individual projects (as "ProjectGroup\ProjectName").

    In using this UI, a multi selection of GroupA* + GroupB\Proj1 is as obvious as GroupA* + GroupA\Proj2 (which would be obviously unnecessary and redundant)
