  1. Rolling deployment parallelism per role

    We have an service environment right now that consists of two data centers that each contains 3 servers that host the services. These services hosts host 100+ services each and each server is hosting exactly one instance of each service; so they are in effect mirrored.

    When we deploy to these servers, we do it one data center at a time. Since there are so many services per server, we can’t just remove the server from the load balancer. Also since we do round robin load balancing and want to have zero downtime and keep consistency in our responses during…

    • To have a way to loop through all the in scope variables in bash

      To have a way to loop through all the in scope variables in bash
      there is an example in PowerShell:
      foreach($variable in $OctopusParameters)
      {
      # Perform the desired action here e.g.
      Write-Output $variable
      }

      Thanks,
      Monika

      • Exclude filters within Advanced Filters for Tasks, Targets, Environments, etc

        Would be nice to have exclude filters. At the moment, we have a deployment hook based on deployment events and it fills up our Tasks section. It would be nice to be able to exclude certain items so we can reduce the noise when searching for important information.

        • Display channel description when creating a new release

          The selected channel's description should be displayed when creating a new release, otherwise a user may miss important information that is not fully conveyed by the channel's name. Currently a user would have to navigate to the separate channels tab to see this, which breaks the UI flow and which they may not necessarily do.

          • option to Download / copy certificate files through Build Step

            We are able to manually download the certificates from octopus certificate store, it will be helpful to do the same in build step as sometimes we need to copy certificate files to the application servers.

            • Move "Excluded Steps" above tenant selection.

              It's a hassle to scroll to exclude steps during a deployment particularly when your debugging a deployment and don't want to/can't disable steps.

              • 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.

                  • Terraform support for SSH Workers

                    Currently the built in terraform steps only support Windows workers. It would be good if the steps were platform agnostic and able to run on any worker.

                    • 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.

                      • Clarify boolean logic of tenants & tenant tags on deployment targets

                        Multiple users at my company have encountered a fairly dangerous deployment target configuration behavior that isn't very clear in the UI. When you configure tenants and tenant tags on a deployment target, the logic is:

                        Specific tenants OR (tenants tagged <abc> AND <xyz> AND <etc.>).

                        The dangerous part is the OR. At first glance, beginners at my company have assumed that the tenant and tenant tag fields all have an AND relationship, so they select a specific tenant and various tenant tags that apply to that tenant. They assume this is straightforward, so they don't click the preview button that…

                          • Additional features for AWS templates

                            Currently there are several AWS deployment templates like one for uploading file to S3 bucket and few for deploying CloudFormation stacks.
                            The problem with them is that they have a short support of different features we have for traditional IIS or Azure templates. So the suggestion is to add some of these features to AWS templates too e.g

                            - JSON Configuration Variables,
                            - Custom Deployment Scripts,
                            - Configuration Variables,
                            - Configuration Transforms

                              • Add "Substitute variables in files" feature in "Run a Helm update" step

                                In "Run a Helm update" step we need: Enabled Features -> Substitute variables in files

                                Why?
                                For example we need to create configMap for our helm-chart. App config locate in this chart, so we need replase all #{values} by values from project scope

                                Step helm_install:
                                1. download chart
                                2. Substitute variables in files (choose location)
                                3. in custom script (deployment step) create configMap for our pods

                                If this feature doesn't exist: we need another step where we download app config and substitute variables and use this file to create configMap

                                • Schedule Trigger of Latest Release without Promotion

                                  We wish to schedule deployment of the latest existing release to a given environment.

                                  Current functionality allows:
                                  1. Create and deploy a new release, or
                                  2. Deploy latest release (by promoting latest deployed release from one environment to another), or
                                  3. Re-deploy latest release on a given environment.

                                  None of these suit our needs.

                                  Our desired functionality is:
                                  1. Pick the latest existing release for the nominated channel;
                                  2. Deploy the release, with all steps enabled, to the nominated environment/s.
                                  3. If the release version has already been deployed, deploy it again, with all steps enabled.

                                    Hi!

                                    We have several tenants that uses the same parameters, call them tenant groups. We would like to have the possibility to inherit a tenant configuration, like teamcity does with build configurations.

                                    Basically it would, per project included in child, give use set variables. If we change the variable, it should say overidden, and there should be a reset button to restore the variable dependency off the parent.

                                    Examples where we would use it.

                                    1. In our test environments we multiple, 5-6 test configurations they all use the same database but are configured slightly different. If we where to change…

                                    • Designing projects with To-Do step placeholders

                                      I need to build and maintain many complex Octopus deployment projects. Since Octopus does not provide any ‘designer’ facilities and I have several incomplete projects on the go which do half the work, and which are already fully used within CD&DTAP environments, I obviously need to complete the projects to do all the work. Now there are still many projects with a few remaining and challenging steps missing, which need to be completed by hand (on every target, sometime with the help of old proven batch files).

                                      So what I seek is a To-Do step null-template which is simply a…

                                      • Utilities, scripts and custom pages

                                        Any plans for introducing custom pages or plugins? It would be really nice to be able to create custom views using the api and have them in the menu of octopus. These pages could also have associated scripts and variables which could be used for viewing logs or trigger a merge or a build of a branch.

                                        Other examples would be viewing all tenants without any deployment option. Or view the lastest commits from a defined source (to get a hint on what is expected in the next release).

                                        I think a lot of users want to use octopus and…

                                        • User variables

                                          I would be nice to be able to define variables per octopus user (for example in external connections you want to store username and password for a service).
