  1. 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.

    • 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

      • 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…

        • 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 multi-package deploy steps

            Allow package deploy steps to select multiple packages that are deployed in the selected order (with the ability to change the order). We have a website where we deploy a clean copy of a vendors files (makes upgrades easier), then we overlay different 3rd party modules and our solution into the same folder. These packages together create a whole website.

            • Automatic variable inclusion

              It would be great if variable sets included a checkbox that would enable it to be automatically included in all future projects. Default behavior should be unchecked by default.

              For us, projects are often created by the developers and enforcing certain variables, scoped to Production, would be very useful for regulatory purposes.

              For example, any deployment to Production requires the user to include a Change Control number. We currently have to remember to include a user prompted variable that is scoped to Production, in order to capture this. This configuration often get's missed when new projects are created.

              Whether through…

              • Add variables substitution capabilities

                We keep our deployment configurations in octopus variables and use json substitution the replace them on deploy time

                This could be improved in a few ways:

                - Use the json variables substitution feature on other step templates than deploy a package (for example: run a script)
                - have to ability to substitute also yml files
                - give a variable a null value, the only option now is tho give him empty string, which influence the code.

                • 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.

                  • Configure path package is deployed to

                    Hi,

                    I have set up Deployment process and everything works fine except one thing.
                    I cannot find a way to edit step "zero" - downloading and unpacking of deployment package (nuget package).
                    In our deployment we process multiple tenants on single environment.

                    What Octopus currently does (this process seems automatic to me):
                    - Downloads correct package version if its not already downloaded (this is ok)
                    - Unpacks it into C:\Octopus\Applications\tenantName\Production\projectName\projectVersion (want to change this)
                    - Then uses this folder as source of data (ok).

                    I have TWO problems with this approach:
                    1)
                    while deploying on multiple tenants after ONE deploy…

                    • 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…

                        • Show a confirmation dialog when the user tries to delete a step containing multiple child steps

                          On the process definition page for Octopus Deploy projects, please show a confirmation dialog when the user attempts to delete a parent process/step containing multiple child steps.
                          Prompting the user to confirm deleting n child steps would be a helpful feature to prevent an accidental deletion.

                                    • Filter on environments in dashboard

                                      Could you add a filter for 'Environments' in addition to the current 'Project' and 'Project group' filters?

                                      We have a lot of environments in our Octoups installation (because we started using octopus prior to the tenants feature) and with the new virtualized dashboard columns we are no longer able to search for specific environments on the dashboard. We need this to be able to see what version is currently deployed to a specific environment.

                                      • 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.
