  1. Allow the visibility of what teams have access to a project/group

    Right now you can view a Team and see what project or project group that team has access to. We'd like to see the reverse as well. When we go to a project or project group we'd like to see the teams that have access along with their permissions.

  2. "Use the version number from an included package" plus incremental number

    "Use the version number from an included package" isn't as useful as it could be because whenever I modify a deployment process and go to create a new release, Octopus complains the release version already exists. So I either have to delete the old release or append ".i" to the version number. I would estimate I've appended ".i" about ten thousand times over the years. Would be nice to not have to do this.

    Basically this:

  3. Deployment promotion with excluded steps is not persisting chosen steps

    Currently if we create a release for a project with multiple steps excluding some of the steps, it is not persisting the state when the same release is promoted to the next environment as part of channel life cycle.

    We need to exclude the steps again when promoting the same release to next environment which is causing lot of problems as people deploying the release are different for different environments and often they forget.

    It would be great if you can persist the state of excluded steps to the next environments as part of same release?

  4. Support inserting into an array in JSON Configuration

    Given an JSON settings file which has an array element

    e.g. { "Users": [] }

    Use Octopus variables to insert into the array rather than just replace values.

    e.g.
    define Users:0:Username = user
    define Users:0:Password = password

    Would result in the object getting inserted

    { "Users": [ { "Username: "user", "Password": "password" } ] }

  5. Export Audit as JSON

    When I use the Export function in Audit, the Details column is a mix of HTML and JSON.
    For example:

    <span>{<br> "Id": "variableset-LibraryVariableSets-76",<br> "OwnerId": "LibraryVariableSets-76",<br> "Version": 11</span><del style="background:#ffe6e6;">5</del><ins style="background:#e6ffe6;">6</ins><span><br>}</span>

    I understand that this is a way to show what the changes were, but this format is only usable for display in HTML, not for parsing the exported audit via any tools.
    Would it be possible to export this as JSON and indicate the change in some other, structural way?
    E.g.

    { "Id": "variableset-LibraryVariableSets-76", "OwnerId": "LibraryVariableSets-76", "Version": { "OldValue": 115, "NewValue": 116 } }

    Or in any other way which would…

  6. Add support for Venafi (Security and SSL) Certificate management

    We use Venafi (https://www.venafi.com/platform/trust-authority) to issue and manager certificates. It would be great if Octopus could integrate with this system to allow for issuance, import and storage of new certificates for the sites we deploy.

  7. Do not warn about changes to the audit trail when running a Runbook Snapshot

    The Run page when Running a Runbook Snapshot always has a "Something has changed since this runbook-snapshot was taken" warning. However, the warning might only be about the audit trail of the Runbook Process. Won't the audit trail change with every run? If so, I think this warning is a false positive.

  8. Trigger Deployment Through Azure Function

    Deployment trigger options are currently limited. It would be nice to trigger a deployment by executing Azure Function which would queue the request using Azure Service Bus. In this case Octopus Deploy would listen for a queue message to start a deployment.

    This solution would allow for various creative integrations within Azure.

  9. Tenant variables side by side

    The idea is to have the tenant variables displayed vertically, with one column for each environment.
    Currently, it is quite tedious to compare or copy variable values from an environment to another.

  10. Provide the ability to generate cryptographic strong passwords

    When deploying application containers, there can be times when you want a password that no human needs to know and survives only for the lifetime of the container.

    Our primary use case is generating secure keystores for certificates, etc. At container start-up, it will generate a new local keystore and we then have the ability to dynamically sign CSRs generated within the container via an external signing service.

    We do not want to leave the keystore nor the certificate objects without any password, but also do not want to store the values anywhere external to the container.

    Granted, we certainly…

  11. 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 ?

  12. Allow for a way to access published artifacts without using the API.

    This is a huge issue with octopus. Needing to create a script to access published artifacts is so messy. Azure DevOps allows for immediate access to artifacts.

    In parallel with this request, we need the ability to publish artifacts with a specific name instead of a randomized name given by Octopus. How are we supposed to clearly use a published artifact if it's given the name "Artifacts-#" ?

  13. Support DNS-01 challenge for LetsEncrypt

    Can we please have support for the DNS-01 challenge type for LetsEncrypt. We don’t want to have to expose a server to the open internet just to validate a certificate domain. DNS-01 solves this by querying the DNS provider directly for the challeng token to ensure you own the domain in question.

  14. Allow .war files to be deployed to Azure Web Apps

    Currently .war files are not supported by the Azure Web App deployment, it would be ideal that we can deploy this type of file directly to Azure Web Apps without having to take additional steps.

  15. Force Step Templates to be a required step

    When creating a Step Template, there should be an option to force any step based on the Template to be required.

    Take the built in "Manual Intervention Required" Step Template as an example... it forces any step based on that Template to be required if one or more responsible teams are specified. In other cases, allowing Step Template authors to decided this would be desirable.

    In our scenario, we have several step templates that are used to ensure our deployment process is ISO compliant, and it's a big overhead and ongoing process to ensure those steps are marked as required…

  16. Release created date (system variable)

    The system variable Octopus.Deployment.Created is updated/changes between deployment to the different environments, but it would be great to have a static value for when the Release itself was created.
    So i suggest a new system variable Octopus.Release.Created that says when the release was created (with the Create Release button).

  19. .NET Core 3.0 CLI support

    I have build agents with the .NET Core 3.0 SDK installed. I am unable to install the CLI as a dotnet tool, as the CLI will only run on .NET Core 2.X. I'd prefer not to have a separate container with the .NET Core 2.1+ runtime or SDK in order to use the CLI.

  20. Allow date manipulation through use of the 'DateNow' and 'DateNowUtc' filters

    For example, allow us to add 1 hour to the time generated by 'DateNowUtc' or 'DateNow'.

    In my case, I want to pass in an expiry time when generating a SAS token in an ARM template, but it's inconvenient to have to use PowerShell to generate that expiry time and then set an output variable.
