  1. Support Azure Service Fabric Mesh

    The Service Fabric Mesh deployment model is in public preview since a couple of months back and GA is expected this spring. Being mainly ARM template and container based, the SF Mesh deployment is probably possible to accompish by custom scripts today, but good out of the box support in OD would be very valuable.

    • Integrate Octopus deploy project variables with Azure Key Vault

      So sensitive project variables will be referenced from Azure Key Vault instead of being stored in octopus.

      https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/key-vault

      3357461 - 'Azure Resource Manager Key Vault support' was only about ARM template Key Vault support.
      17973586 - 'Integrate Octopus deploy with secrets managment system Vault' is similar to this issue only for https://www.vaultproject.io

      This idea is similar to
      https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/vsts/build-release/concepts/library/variable-groups?view=vsts#link-secrets-from-an-azure-key-vault-as-variables

      • Enable worker pool support for 'Deploy a Package' step

        We have nearly a dozen client/WPF projects that primarily consist of backing up a directory and then overwriting it with an updated package (size ranging from 20-350MB). Each of these projects push their packages to 20 remote servers, but the servers cannot host tentacles due to our security policies, so we run the steps from one of our Octopus hosts (via tentacle installed alongside the manager service). This is slow and expensive on the Octopus host, especially when there are many other deploys underway. Worst of all, it forces steps to deploy in serial versus parallel because all steps are…

          • Add security secret cleansing to Artifacts

            When Octopus attaches Artifacts it does not screen the for any secrets or credentials as such these can often compromise accounts etc that are used to create that Artifact, depending on what it is and how its made.

            It would be great if before Octopus attached the Artifact it looked to screen and cleanse the Artifact of potential Secrets there fore reducing the risk of it been used for security exploits etc.

            • Filter Environments shown in each Project Group on the Dashboard

              Filter the environments show in each project group on the dashboard. Only environments included in the lifecycles/channels for each project in the project group should be shown.

              We have many environments but most are only used by a few project groups. Some project groups only deploy to a single environment. This requires us to horizontally scroll far to the right past environments which aren't capable of being deployed to in order to see what is deployed.

              • Highlight the variable Snapshot difference while updating the release snapshot

                Whenever there is a change in the variable after the creation of the release, we used to get warning saying "Release Snapshot has been changed". But we do have only one option to update the entire release without knowing what has been changed. It would be great if you have any way to find/highlight the variables and their values that will be updated when I click "Update Variables" in the release Snapshot section. It will minimize the risk when it's comes to updating the snapshots for production deployment and it will give a transparent view of what changes are done…

                • Re-label or remove the "Automatically run configuration transformation files" checkbox

                  The label of this checkbox is slightly confusing - it led me to believe there was a manual process for applying transforms too. Given that when this box is ticked, a default set of transforms are applied, and when it is not ticked, those default transforms don't run (but transforms listed in the additional box DO run) and the process is always automatic, a label like "Apply the default set of transforms built into octopus" might be better. Alternatively, consider removing the checkbox entirely and just putting the pre-programmed defaults (Web.Release.config => Web.Config, Web.#{Octopus.Environment.Name}.config =>Web.Config) into the box as a…

                  • 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.

                      • Rolling deployment parallelism per role

                        We have an service environment right now that consists of two data centers that each contains 3 servers that host the services. These services hosts host 100+ services each and each server is hosting exactly one instance of each service; so they are in effect mirrored.

                        When we deploy to these servers, we do it one data center at a time. Since there are so many services per server, we can’t just remove the server from the load balancer. Also since we do round robin load balancing and want to have zero downtime and keep consistency in our responses during…

                        • Display channel description when creating a new release

                          The selected channel's description should be displayed when creating a new release, otherwise a user may miss important information that is not fully conveyed by the channel's name. Currently a user would have to navigate to the separate channels tab to see this, which breaks the UI flow and which they may not necessarily do.

                            • Allow adding tags for AWS CloudFormation Stacks

                              Currently if I were to deploy a CloudFormation template using the AWS CLI I would have the option to specify tags for the stack.

                              The tags defined at the stack level propagate to all AWS resources in the stack that support tagging.

                              Since our stacks generally correlate to an environment such as 'staging' or 'production' it would be useful to supply an Environment tag to the stack and have this applied to all resources.

                              Octopus currently does not allow us to specify the tags for the stack in the 'Deploy an AWS CloudFormation template' step.

                                  • Define Manual intervention on an Environment

                                    I'd like to assign a manual intervention, or "Approval gate", at the environment level, independent of project.

                                    We have many projects that can be deployed to our environments. The lifecycles these projects can deploy to have a mix of Dev, CI, Test and Production environments. Some important environments require approval before anything can be deployed to them (e.g. QA, PreProd, Production).

                                    At the moment I have to add manual intervention steps to every project that could be deployed to those environments. I also have to make the intervention steps are conditional based on the environments they're going to (i.e. I…

                                    • Bug: Last variable does not show menu (e.g. Open Editor, Change Type)

                                      You are at the project/variable screen. Usually when you click on (or create) a variable you see an overlay menu with the option to open the editor or change the value type.
                                      But this menu is cut off for the last variable in the list when it only contains a single value!

                                      Workaround is to add a second value or use the search functionality to expand the space bellow.

                                      • Make variable list usable for configuring IIS bindings.

                                        When adding a binding to IIS in Octopus, you can only use seperate variable. Every binding needs a new variable. Some of our deployments have over 50 bindings. We create each binding separate. If we use a variable list only the last item of the list end up in de IIS binding. It would help us a lot if we could ad three generic bindings (Test, Acceptation, Production), en in the bindings use a variable list, containing all the IIS bindings.

                                        • Add a Deploy Feature to configure file system permissions

                                          When we deploy a website we need to grant the user running the IIS application pool access to the deployment directory. Similarly, when deploying a windows service, we need to grant the user running the service filesystem permissions to the deployment directory.

                                          It would be great to add a Feature to "Deploy to IIS" and "Deploy to a Windows Service" that would set the file system permissions for the user associated with the App Pool or Windows Service.

                                          We like to set file system permissions during deployments so we have one less environment-specific issue to worry about (ex: oops, the…
