  1. Support older versions of SQL Server

    Please reintroduce support for SQL Server 2016 Enterprise.

    Recent versions of Octopus only support SQL Server 2017+. SQL Server 2016 (SP2) still has mainstream Microsoft support until July 2021 and extended support until July 2026. It is very expensive for organisations to run and support multiple editions of Highly Available Enterprise SQL clusters and is consequently a barrier for upgrading to the latest Octopus version for my organisation. My organisation is a large enterprise in a heavily regulated industry so our software must be supported platforms, I am sure many of your enterprise customers would benefit from this.

    We have relaxed the restrictions on SQL Server from SQL Server 2017+ to SQL Server 2016+ in the latest patch release of Octopus Server 2020.2 and 2020.3.

    This has taken affect from the following versions
    2020.1.x (SQL Version change was not enforced in 2020.1.x)
    2020.2.18 ➜ 2020.2.latest
    2020.3.6 ➜ 2020.3.latest
    2020.4.0 ➜ latest

  3. Support Terraform 0.12

    Octopus supports Terraform-Steps. It uses Terraform 0.11. Terraform 0.12 has been released and has a few breaking changes. Update the Terraform-Integration to be compatible with Terraform 0.11 and 0.12.

  4. Disable Chrome AutoFill on inputs

    The chrome autofill gets in the way of dropdowns/multi-selects. There is not the ability for a user to disable autofill for specific websites, but this is supposed to work on the developer side:

  5. Helm 3 support

    Helm 3 is around the corner. Right now rc2 is available. Would be nice to Octopus could integrate with 3rd version of helm. Eg. Repositories will be available as container registries also. Are you guys plan to integrate with third version ?

  8. Allow defining an explicit order for prompted variables

    At the moment (at least to my knowledge) the order in which prompted variables are shown is dependent on the variable name (ordered alphabetically).

    It would be really cool if there was a possibility to give prompted variables an explicit order so that we can control in which order they appear in a simpler manner. For example it would be cool if one could just set a "priority" value for a prompted variable. This "priority" could be an integer and the prompts could then be ordered by this priority in descending order.

    Unfortunately giving them names to achieve the correct…

  9. Allow kubernetes & helm steps to override the target provided namespace

    Although the kubernetes target type defines its namespace, there may be some situations where a different namespace should be used for a given step

  10. Add ability to use run conditions for child steps

    The only way to specify a rolling deployment is by grouping several steps into one parent step.

    Child steps cannot specify any run condition (success, fail, variable) but some child steps run condition can be based on several factors controlled by run conditions.

    I already opened a discussion here: http://help.octopusdeploy.com/discussions/problems/55380-add-ability-to-use-run-conditions-for-child-steps

  12. Show variable snapshot differences in release screen

    Sometimes when deploying, the user receives this message:

    "For consistency, this deployment will use a snapshot of the variables and deployment process that was taken when the release was created, which does not include the latest changes that have been made to the project. A changed process can only be incorporated by creating a new release (this one may be renamed if desired). Variables can be updated via the release page, clicking Show to show the variables from the snapshot, and clicking the Update variables button."

    It would be great to be able to tell the user exactly what changed,…

  13. Allow cloning of tenants

    It should be possible to clone a tenant including it's current configuration in a similar way to that you can clone whole projects.
    Tenants tend to be similarly configured with only minor changes to each one so it would save time rather than having to configure each one from scratch.

  14. Add Let's Encrypt automation to OD server

    Ensuring certificates for the OD server are up to date are a little annoying. It would be awesome if the OD server could support renewing it's own hosting certificate with Let's Encrypt.

    I've had a stab at creating custom steps to do this. The main issue is domain validation (DV). DNS validation often requires manual intervention and OD server controls http (see discussion at https://community.letsencrypt.org/t/domain-validation/26512 ).

    The only way I see this really progressing forward is if OD server supports Let's Encrypt in the server as a maintanence task as it would be able to respond to http DV requests.…

  16. Allow project dependencies - so deploying one project would automatically deploy all dependent projects

    We have many dependencies between our projects. So for example we have cross database dependencies which mean that a particular version of the database must be installed prior to another version. Similarly we have base services that are required by all others that must be installed first. There is currently no way of telling Octopus that one project depends upon another.

    We could create one great big Octopus deployment with all the steps in it to deploy the TFS projects/libraries in the correct order. But this would be very complicated because of the large number of dependencies.

    It would be…

  17. Improve variables UI

    The variables view is very basic and it generally needs improving since it quickly gets hard to use when you begin adding lots of variables.


    1. You have to add the same variable name for multiple environments and the ordering of environments is not the same. This is error prone and makes the list hard to parse.

    2. There is no description for variables so you need to add very long names sometimes. This has already been covered, but I added it for completeness. See https://octopusdeploy.uservoice.com/forums/170787-general/suggestions/6079578-enhance-the-variable-maintenance-screen-with-varia

    3. There can be different types of variables which are changed for different reasons. It would be…

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions. We are happy to announce that a new version of the Variable Editor has shipped in Octopus 4.0! See https://octopus.com/blog/octopus-release-4-0 for more details.

    In this first release, we have focused on providing a great variable editing experience, which we hope you will love! Although we haven’t yet been able to implement all of your great suggestions, we have been able to build an extensible variable editor that we will continue to improve in future.
