  1. Deployment Steps - Loop Step with variable

    Hi,
    I have a service/container and I want to launch it in the same machine a number of times (variable to be applied per environment/tenant) .

    Do you have something for this? Can you put this?

    • Add Auto-Logout Timeout for Users

      As an administrator of our Octopus server I'd like to assign auto-logout interval for our users after a period of inactivity.

      • Specify Service Name in Ingress Host Rule

        Currently, when creating an Ingress Host Rule, you can only specify the "Path" and the "Service port". The Service Name appears to be calculated for you. Why not let the user specify the name?

        One use case where providing the Service Name is critical is when using Ingress Annotations for the AWS ALB Ingress. An action annotation can be provided on the Ingress to tell the ALB Ingress Controller to create a specific action on the ALB. For example, an SSL redirect action. The annotation must be named "alb.ingress.kubernetes.io/actions.my-custom-action-name". Then in the host rule you specify the desired path (for…

        • Allow specifying Tentacle name in Azure Resource Manager Template extension

          When using the Azure ARM template Octopus Tentacle extension, it would be nice to be able to override the tentacle name. It currently uses the computer name, which sometimes is not the best name for the tentacle

          • Supply a list of project variables for powershell

            Currently in powershell scripts, the only list of variables is $OctopusParameters, but this list includes all the built-in Octopus parameters as well.

            It would be really nice to be able to reference only the variables defined in the current project during a deployment.

            Something like $OctopusProjectVariables

            • Verify a user's database permissions prior to attempting the database upgrade

              If a user runs an Octopus Deploy installer and has some of the permissions necessary to upgrade the database, but not all, the database can be left in a broken state. Verifying all the permissions are correct before making any changes would prevent this broken state, which is most likely to occur by accident.

              • Show the Project name on HTML Title instead of "Overview - Octopus Deploy"

                When you navigate to a project, you get to the Overview page as a start. When you open up many projects at once (cause a change triggered multiple CI for example, which should be deployed) all of them will show "Overview - Octopus Deploy" in the HTML title and as such it's also what's displayed on the browser tabs:

                You loose the ability to distinguish between these tabs. It also means that if you bookmark multiple projects then you'll have to change their title manually to have a valuable label for them. You have to click around them to figure…

                  Would it be possible to introduce a new user role\s for adding\editing\removing steps from a process?

                  We would like developers to be able to add a new step but not delete or edit existing steps.

                  • octo.exe pack should support a --exclude= flag (at least when --format=zip)

                    The nuspec approach may indeed support excluding files. However the zip approach (--format=zip) doesn't. Per octopus documentation the .zip approach is the recommended way forward. In this light a --exclude option is in order to compensate feature-wise vS the nupkg approach.

                      In Task Log screen, we need to click on "+" button to expand the sections for each section. A "Expand All" button would be useful when you want to expand all sections at once but do not want the verbosity in Raw tab.

                      • Scheduled deployments allow select release versions

                        Hi,
                        We would like to select certain release versions in the scheduled deployment triggers similar to how we create a new release and can select a release version
                        Currently it doesn't seem to be possible and it uses only the latest release
                        Hope this can added in the next Octopus release
                        Thanks,
                        KK

                        • Obfuscate sensitive variables in deployment log in variable substitution

                          We're using various steps for deployment ('Deploy a package', 'Deploy to IIS') which both have variable substitution options to substitute variables in Web.config/App.config.

                          During deployment, i've noticed that these substitutions are logged. However, sometimes i see that our sensitive variables are being logged here at 'verbose' level. Other sensitive (and also non-sensitive) variables are obfuscated.

                          It seems that the deployment process decides by itself based on the name of the variable. In my opinion, the sensitive option of the variabel should be considered here as well.

                          An example of what we've got currently:
                          We've got an appsetting in our app.config,…

                          • Exclude process steps when you are creating release

                            Exclude process steps when you are creating release not before deploying release. Why?

                            We have multiple projects and when we are deploying to higher environments we are actually deploying "wrapper project" which contains releases of projects.

                            In each release, we don't always deploy all the projects so we want to exclude them from deploying.

                            We know that we can set up "deploy only if the version is greater". But If we exclude some of deploy release steps then we have a better overview of what actually has been deployed.

                            We just want to skip boring manually clicking each time before…

                            • 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.

                                • Allow machine policies to be set for Azure WebApps

                                  I would like to be able to customize the Health Check of Azure WebApps deployment targets. For example I would expose an endpoint `/health` that must be queried on an ~hourly basis. In the case of a Tentacle this is possible using Machine Policies, but I can't assign one to a Azure WebApp deployment target.

                                      Amazon's ECR (Elastic Container Registry) is a docker-compatible registry that you can configure as a first-class package feed in Octopus. Part of the ECR product (in AWS) is to set up lifecycle policies so it can automatically delete old images (since it takes up space for each image). This is a similar feature that Octopus offers on its own built-in package registry, but the ECR is obviously an external registry so the purging has to managed by AWS (and no Octopus). But ECR has no way of knowing which images are used (so they won't get deleted), except if you…

                                      • Approval Role
