  1. Improve health warnings display to show upgrades

    I generally like the new UI in version 4, but there are some oversights which are quite annoying.

    This one in particular has caused me to stop updating tentacles. When a tentacle needs a Calamari or tentacle update, there is simply no way to see this without drilling down all the way into the connectivity tab for that specific tentacle! If I click upgrade all tentacles in an environment, I no longer have any idea what's going to happen before I click it! The old overview was much more informative here. Please add some type of information or new icon…

    • Octopus Server, One Click Update / Upgrade option

      We use JetBrains TeamCity along with Octopus Deploy and TeamCity included a "one click" upgrade process for point releases in their web application. This is a very useful feature.

      Just in the last 3 weeks 8 minor point releases have been made available for install.

      I suggest Octopus includes a similar option for simple updating of the Octopus Server to the latest available release. We see the notification in the web interface right now, but a method to click and have it backup recommended configurations and update the installation would allow our Engineering teams to keep the instance more current.

      • Add comment to the variable name, not just the value

        We have the need to comment on which variable name is sensitive to a deployment environment and which variable is a deciding factor for a feature. It's neat to comment values per environment however, the comment per value might not help telling what the purpose of the variable is.

        • Update the Octopus Integrity check to ignore Azure SQL Replication Schemas

          Hi,

          We are using an Azure SQL DB which which is geo replicated to meet our DR requirements. As part of this configuration Azure adds two additional schemas to the DB (DSS and TaskHosting) presumably to keep track of the internal replication state.
          However this does cause the Octopus Integrity check to fail as it is not expecting to find these tables on the DB.

          I have also noticed that during upgrades (from 3.X to 4.x) it tries and fails to remove these tables which isn't causing any issues we can see at the moment but could cause issues down…

            • Make script arguments a multi-line textbox

              When using the "Run a Script" step with a script from a package the input field for the script parameters is a single-line textbox.

              It would be a lot better if the textbox was multi-line (or at the very least resizable) to make entering more than a handful parameters possible without always scrolling.

              • Tentacleless deployments using WinRM

                Now that Octopus Deploy can do deployments via SSH, it seems like it would be fairly simply to implement the ability to do deployments by connecting over Windows Remote Management (WinRM).
                Agentless deployments is a selling point used by other deployment tools, and now that Octopus Deploy can do "agentless" deploys via ssh, it would make sense to enable the same support for Windows machines as well using native Windows functionality.

                This would provide several potential advantages depending on the deployment infrastructure:
                - No service needs to be running on each deployment machine
                - No additional firewall port needs to…

                • Add channel to the deploy release page

                  On the deploy release page (the one that shows just before actually deploying a release) the channel (if any) is not shown anywhere on the page. Would be very useful to avoid mistakes when deploying.

                  • promote a whole environment

                    We have "major deployments". At this time we have to deploy all our applications (~ 70) at once. So it would be nice to have a possibility to deploy all projects from environment-1 to environment-2

                      • Link tenants-tags to project

                        In many cases not all tenant tags sets will be used for project deployments. Either because different projects use different tags sets or because some tag-sets are used for different purposes.

                        It would be great to be able to configure which tag-sets to display on the tenants selection section (Octopus 4.*) of the deployment page, allowing for a drastic reduction of display space and clutter when using this section.

                          • Allow release number version ranges to be used as a step condition

                            To support the introduction or removal of deployment steps while continuing to support for new builds of older configurations it would be nice to be able to set a step to only run for specific release versions.

                            While channels can be twisted to support this use case it requires significant setup and management on the CI server that publishes and creates the builds.

                            • Allow Rolling Deployment Window Size on Advanced Deployment Screen

                              I see that there is a "rolling deployment" windows size on each step in the process, but that doesn't make much sense to me. I feel that I want ALL of the steps to run, but for a specified number of machines on the deploy release deployment screen. The screen that allows you to skip certain steps. An example of what I am referring to: https://app.box.com/s/x3y4n9iukx15mavz4yjasrdbt5eyae8p

                              Basically, if we have 20 targets in an environment, I could specify a rolling windows of 2 for that environment, and Octopus would perform ALL of the steps for two machines at a time.

                                • Edit a deployment step script on failure

                                  When developing scripts for Octopus I write them in Powershell ISE, test and run then migrate over to octopus. If this fails when I deploy I need to debug, apply my fix then retry the deployment.
                                  The main reason for this is that steps generally run with some reference to previous steps that have executed (deployment directory, variables etc). Mocking this out when writing the powershell scripts is fine but never perfect I have found.

                                  What would be nice is the opportunity to edit the script in the deployment task log when performing a guided failure. Being able to guide…

                                      • Color Coordinate

                                        Different color for version #'s on different environments.

                                        For instance right now they are both green even if the version numbers are different.

                                        So Test v1.0.1 | Prod v1.0.0 both show green but at a quick glance on the dashboard it would be nice that Prod would be a different (vague) color to signify it is a different version that is on test.

                                        • Ability to add/remove projects to included projects from an existing project page

                                          When in a project, regardless of what page (overview, process, variables etc.) I'd like the ability to add or remove this project to my filtered projects (dropdown on menu bar). Rather than having to go to the Dashboard->Filtering

                                          Octopus 3.16.5
