  1. Option to hide Spaces in navigation

    Just upgraded to 2019.1 - the Spaces navigation item bothers me a lot. We only have one space, and don’t want more spaces (and won’t upgrade our license), yet I can’t seem to find an option to remove this. Something to add under Configuration > Features?

    • 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.

      • Allow segregated package repositories

        In a lot of companies there is a clear separation between development packages and packages approved for production. Systems like Sonatype Nexus and Artifactory provide hugely powerful examples of these catering for a wide variety of requirements, but in most cases you need a simple set of requirements:
        * The ability to push packages to one (dev) repo
        * The ability to promote packages to another (prod) repo
        * The ability to force certain environments to pick from a certain repo

        This should be a relatively simple improvement to Octopus' very awesome but very simple package management capabilities.

        • 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.

          • Octopus Server API versions & related components - Compatibility Table

            Firstly, thanks for working on and improving upon an already great product. Now to the feedback at hand, I am currently investigating making use of the .NET Octopus.Client within a project to manage the octopus deploy server. As part of that investigation I was trying to gain a better grasp of the compatibility of the various Octopus Deploy (OD) server versions and the related components. That led me to the current page, https://octopus.com/docs/api-and-integration/compatibility which though useful at first glance, it was not clearly defined upon further investigation. Since I'm looking to use the Octopus.Client component let's example some questions for…

            • Mapping environments on library variable sets

              The issue I run into is the following:

              Product A: offers an API on several environments DEV/TST/ACC/PRD

              Product B: wants to use ProductA-TST on DEV/TST/QA
              wants to use ProductA-PRD on ACC/PRD

              I want the ability to make a library set of varables from product A so any other product I have can easily link to the API, without having to keep track of a url in the other projects variables. So if Product A changes the URL, everyone is automatically updated.

              But I might have more environments in other projects or want to map multiple environments to 1 environment of…

              • 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.

                • Display more than 3 releases in overview

                  Hi,

                  The overview page seems to show a variable amount of releases. On one project it is showing 4, where only the oldest and newest deployments were pushed to prod. On another project it is only showing 3, again where the oldest and newest were to production.

                  Could we simplify this and just have it show a paginated list of all the releases? You could then use the filters to filter the rows down (rather than columns as it does now, which isn't a filter if we're honest!).

                  By doing this it will make this screen much more usable in…

                  • Scope variables by Date

                    Add the ability in the variable editor to set a variable value to only be used during a specific date range. Dates should be able to exclude year. "Every Oct, Nov, Dec" for example.

                    • Move the Load More/Load all buttons to be closer to tenants

                      In multi-tenant implementations, the Tenants screen only shows 30 tenants. When the left side list of Tenant types, upgrade rings, hostings, etc, exceeds the height of the list of tenants, the "Load More and Load All" button/link is pushed to the bottom of the page and requires a user to scroll to see there are more tenants to choose from. This has caused us to miss several tenants when making configuration changes because it looks like we are seeing all tenants on the screen.

                      I have a screen shot but I don't know how to submit it.

                        • Add last date modified field to Variable Views

                          Add a last date modified field on variables. I think it would be very useful, so it's evident where regression may have occurred between releases and so on if someone makes an update in a group access setting. I know the audit table is useful in this regard, but takes significantly more digging to parse. If you really want to get fancy, show the date, and then if you click it, an audit popup of the last n times it was edited, what date, and by whom.

                            • SSL Certificate Expiry notification with X Number of days

                              It would be great to be able to set the number of days for which a Notifcation of an SSL certificate takes place.

                              Due to a number of external factors we normally plan SSL replacements 60 days in advance so the 20 day expiry warning that is currently set will not be viable.

                              • Create Administration Apps for Octopus Deploy for IOS and Android

                                As we know this is the era of mobility and mobile apps, I believe that it is the time for Octopus deploy to have its own mobile apps on Android and IOS. This will be of a great added value for the uses to timely interact, support and troubleshoot specially when they traveling, on move, or unable to access their laptops or desktops.

Dev Leads could restart Windows services on individual nodes in Dev. Right now a user has to be an Octopus admin to run a custom shell script but we don't want the Dev teams to be able to affect production. I'd rather just create a task job so Dev or QA does not mistakenly run the…

                                  • Octopus.Migrator shoud not use meaningless "IDs"

                                    Since the content type and name is obviously a unique key (particularly when exporting to files), Migrator should use the name (prefixed by the type name) as the key when linking from other resources, rather than a phony ID that changes when you import.

                                    That is, rather than a Team having MemberUserIds = [ "Users-1" ] it should have MemberUsers = [ "Users-BobCratchet" ] which is both more comprehensible, and unlikely to change in a simple import and re-export.

                                    • Clone a LifeCycle

                                      There should be a way (via the user interface) to clone a LifeCycle.

                                      • Make variables groupable/collapsable

                                        In the project I'm currently working in; we have 6+ environments and many variables are unique to these environments.

                                        To get a better overview of all the variables I suggest that you add the possibility to collapse or group the variables by name.

                                        • Port Octopus to .NET Core

                                          Moving Octopus Server/Tentacle/Calamari to .NET Core would extend the reach of Octopus Server to other platforms.

                                          - List item 2

                                            We have put this task on hold as the .NET Core libraries do not yet have all the bits we need.

                                            We have however ported the following to .NET Core:
                                            - Octostache
                                            - Halibut
                                            - Octo.exe
                                            - Octopus.Client
                                            - Most of Calamari

                                            This means these tools can be used on Linux.

                                            We have also built https://www.icanhasdot.net/

                                            We may pick this item up in the future, one the platform matures.
