  1. Allow Variables to be Version Controlled

    Imagine you have a connection string variable and you want to update it. You would update the variable and redeploy, however if you made a mistake (edited the wrong variable or the new connection string was not live yet) then you cannot roll back. This is even more of a problem if the variable is sensitive as you can't copy it beforehand.

    I would like to be able to version octopus variables, this would include:
    - Who
    - When
    - When deployed
    - The ability to roll back/forward.

    At the moment we have to source control much of this type…

    • Make Dashboard Interface Adjustable or Themeable

      With one of the latest updates, the Dasboard technology has been changes to React Virtualized Grids. We are running a bigger Project with a lot of services that are grouped up in the dashboard. With that new Technology, the scrolling performance and logic on the page got really weird. Sometimes the group is scrolling, sometimes the page. While attaching/detaching Deploy Versions sometimes a white area is shown while scrolling.

      In addition we had custom user styles applied by the browser Addon stylish to resize the grid in Dashboards as Element and Text sizes seem to be optimized for Tablets. Before…

      • 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

        • Add StorageAccount to Azure Targets

          Add StorageAccount to Azure Targets. Azure storage accounts now support creating static website in a blob in a storage account, so it would be much appreciated if it would be possible to deploy to a StorageAccount on Azure as part of the Azure Targets. Please use SAS key instead of requiring the installation of ServicePrincipal

          • Allow Terraform step script packages to have deploy.ps1 scripts

            Script packages used in a terraform step should be able to execute deploy.ps1 files, like all other script packages. This would support use cases such as needing to perform a custom terraform command, or do some dynamic editing of .tf files (say download some from a common http location), or special config for your backend (as this is a bit painful in regular terraform).

            • When deploying project containing Deploy Release step, allow previewing steps and excluding machines from child deployments

              Currently when deploying a project containing one or more Deploy Release steps (https://octopus.com/docs/deployment-process/coordinating-multiple-projects/deploy-release-step), there is no ability to preview the deployment steps that will be executed in the child deployment, nor the ability to exclude machines from the child deployment.

              It would be nice to surface this information on the create-deployment page of the parent project.

              • 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…

                • Create automatic release using external Package versions

                  I would like to create automatic release version based on the package version from TFS or JFrog repository,Basically i would like to schedule the release creation and deploy to some environment . I would like to use the version number from the package rather create on its own? Any thoughts if this is already supported?

                  • Allow Package variable type for step template

                    I would like to create a step template to run some Postman test suite. For this I thought to pass the test files and environment files to the package. Extract the package somewhere, run powershell in the extracted package and call newman (command line runner for postman).

                    But I can't add a 'Package variable' to a step template (like for a deployment step.

                    It would be nice to have this as variable for a step template. In the process, you would then get a dropdown with the available packages, and a dropdown with the possible packagefeeds. The script would then…

                    • 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.

                          • Proget Universal Package Format Support

                            It would be great if Ocotpus could support as an external package feed:

                            https://inedo.com/support/documentation/upack/tools-and-libraries/upack-cli

                            This is because using `upack` cross platform cli it is easy to create and publish packages containing applications, to a proget universal format feed. Octopus has an in built zip file feed, but we want to standardise our artifacts feeds to proget as it is purpose built for feed management.

                            Nuget cli is not good at packaging up for example a single exe to push somewhere - like an apk file - because you first have to generae a nuspec file, and then you have to…

                              • Make Environment column a link to that environment in Project overview page

                                It would be very nice to be able to click the "Environment" column header when viewing the projects overview, so you can instantly jump to which servers are configured for that environment. Another option would be to make a popup when hovering over the environment name in the column header.

                                A third option would be to add a new "tab" to the left side that lets you view/configure the environment for that project.

                                Similarly, a popup or link in the Lifecycle view to view or go directly to that environment.

                                • 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.

                                  • Support the repository attribute in package metadata

                                    Hello,

                                    OctoPack / Octo.exe currently does not support the latest nuget XSD spec, and fails to run when newer elements are used in the nuspec:

                                    Repro steps:

                                    1. Create a new nuspec file with all the defaults and inside it add a repository element inside the metadata element. Example:

                                    ```xml
                                    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
                                    <package xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/packaging/2010/07/nuspec.xsd">
                                    <metadata>
                                    <repository type="git" url="https://github.com/user/repo&quot; />
                                    </metadata>
                                    </package>
                                    ```

                                    2. Run OctoPack or Octo.exe with the pack command, and the following error will be shown:

                                    ```
                                    error OCTONUGET: The element 'metadata' in namespace 'http://schemas.microsoft.com/packaging/2010/07/nuspec.xsd'; has invalid child element 'repository' in…

                                    • Allow inline editing of deployment process step actions

                                      As a Deployment Process creator/editor
                                      I want to be able to edit deployment process step actions in-line on the deployment process page
                                      So that I can quickly and easily update my deployment processes.

                                      • 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.
