  1. Reliable OST to PST Converter

    OST file is one of the database files used by Microsoft Outlook. Its main purpose is to serve as an enabler for working offline even when the connection to Exchange is not live. In such scenarios, the changes you make are later synced to the Exchange Server when the connection is back live.

    If there are any errors or corruption issues in the OST file, the information stored within it comes under risk. This is mainly due to the fact that OST files, unlike PST files, cannot be opened independently of the Outlook profile that created them.

    So in all…

  2. Deploy a Release Step - Task Summary View

    We have a "master" deployment project that runs a bunch of "Deploy a Release" steps that run other projects. We would love to be able to monitor each of the sub projects from the master. Right now to view the details of a "Deploy a Release" step you see something like this: Deploying release 2020.5.0-beta.14 of project 'ZYX'. View deployment.

    When you click View Deployment you are taken to another page to monitor the progress. We would love to see all that information displayed on the master project so we don't have to drill down.

  3. Add dates range in Octopus task filters

    if we can have date filter in the task section then it will be ease to get the data for a particular time period.

  4. JSON Template for Subscriptions

    Allow the json payload used when setting up Subscriptions to be templated in the same way as config.
    If you could specify the json with embedded octopus variables you could integrate with many many other tools without the need to add a custom step at the end of each deployment. (eg. MS teams)

  5. Expose Octopus.Deployment.Targets during deployment

    The current Octopus.Deployment.Targets variable is only available to the Deployment Changes section. It would be beneficial to expose this information during the deployment too.
    The use case in mind is sending emails pre-release that mention the machines that will be deployed to, or in the case of Azure, could expose the URLs, given these work on the convention of <machine-name>.azurewebsites.net

  6. Allow variable in variable set to have a Project Group scope

    It would be useful if we could set variables in a variable set to a Project Group scope.

    The use case for this is that we have a shared variable set that sets a product ID.

    We could then scope this by product group.

    eg

    Variable Set Products
    Product Id - ATeam Scoped to Project Group A
    Product Id - BTeam Scoped to Project Group B

    Project Group A
    - Proj A1
    - Proj A2

    Project Group B
    - Proj B1
    - Proj B2

    Currently we have to override the ProductID in every project in Project Group B which sometimes…

  7. Add more regional support to Octopus Cloud

    Octopus Cloud is presently limited to three Azure regions (West US 2, West Europe, Australia East).
    Strict data sovereignty rules for some customers may mean that Octopus Cloud is currently not a viable solution.

    It would be good if more regions were supported by Octopus Cloud - specifically UK West and/or UK South.

    Also - how does Octopus handle high availability and fault tolerance if limited to only one region?

  9. Runbook specific variables

    Add variables to Runbooks, so that adding new variables to the project for a specific Runbook don't cause the snapshots of other Runbooks to be old.

    For example, we have a Runbook that exports data from a database to a CSV and emails it. We have variables for the from and to dates and the email addresses to send to. The from/to dates are prompted variables, so you can do an adhoc run. If no dates are provided, it will default to the last week of data.

    These variables only have meaning for this Runbook, so it would be nice…

  10. Add date, time and date/time variable types

    Add date, time and date/time variable types. This would validate that the input value is a valid date, time or date/time.

    Optionally provide a friendly interface (date picker control) for the respective values.

  11. Tenant "overview" page is not intuitive

    I find that the most common task performed on tenants is modification of tenant variables. However, I feel that the UI does not support this task very well.

    I find that once I click through on the tenant, my next step is to click on the project in which I wish to set variables for which does not result in the expected action (it takes you to the project instead).

    My recommendation is that the tenant variables becomes the landing page for tenants and the project administration for the tenant could become a secondary page (or perhaps it could even…

  12. Allow a runbook to be able to be run from another runbook

    With standard octopus deployment there is a "deploy a release" step which can be used to run other projects from a parent project.

    It would be usefult o have a similar "run a runbook" step to be able to build up run books from smaller steps into bigger processes.

    Our use case is swithcing to DR, there are numerous steps such as stopping various services, starting other services, stopping replication etc. But, each of these steps is also useful in itself so we have steps effectively duplicated, once in the invoke dr runbook and once in a runbook all by…

  14. Process Editor with parent/child steps to frustrating.

    When I have a few Parent processes with some Child process in them, The Process Editor is very hard to use. You get that dreaded "Menu Options unavailable while viewing a parent or its child steps." Comment box appear. The problem is that there is no other way to do Parent tasks like add a child step now that you have a "parent or its child steps" selected. Only when you click into another Parent step can you access the Parent process menu. This is hugely frustrating when you are working of creating a bunch of child steps.

    Please change…

  15. Ability to set application URLs for each environment, allowing linking from dashboard

    It would be great if the Octopus dashboard, which displays the current releases of each application in each environment, contained links to the applications in the specific environments. E.g. if the box displaying details of the most recent deployment of Application X to Environment Y also contained a link to that app in that environment

    We presently maintain this info outside of Octopus, in Wiki pages etc, but it’s a pain to maintain.
    It would be great if this was directly available in Octopus, because the matrix of applications to environments is already there. Forcing users to access the links…

  16. 'dotnet octo pack' multiple packages in one command (Octopus.DotNet.Cli)

    The OctoPack project is great for Framework projects. We add the nuget dependency to select projects and add /p:RunOctoPack=true to our build script. The build script does not need to be updated for every new, removed or renamed octo-packed project.

    SDK projects are less automated. After building, we have to run dotnet publish, then octo pack for each project. It would be great to define 1 build script, then update the projects as needed to pack or not.

    Idea to attain goal:


    1. Add element &lt;IsOctoPackable&gt;true&lt;/IsOctoPackable&gt; in csproj that works similar to IsPackable.


    2. Allow dot net octo pack to point…

  17. Support the creation of custom permissions

    Octopus has the ability to create custom roles, but not to introduce new permissions. We would like to be able to add new custom permissions and then have both a REST api and script access that lets us test if a role has that permission. This would let us extend the Teams / Users / User Roles model to cover finer grained decisions more gracefully than a proliferation of user roles.

  18. Better integration between runbooks and deployments

    When deploying to c:\mydirectory#{Octopus.Release.Number} Runbooks are unable to obtain the #{Octopus.Release.Number} information from the deployment. Which makes a lot of actions rather difficult.
    If it was possible for a deployment to set a variable available to Runbooks or for Runbooks to query information in releases per environment that would really be great.

  20. Datetime filter for Octopus APIs

    Octopus does not provide date time filter for any of the Octopus APIs.
    Which makes very difficult to pull data for an older date.
    There is no way other than loading each page then take the Page.Next value and compare the date.
    Its time consuming when the date we search is really old.

    I would like Octopus deploy to support the date filter for APIs.

    There is one more drawback while using APIs with out date time filter which is explained in this page.
    https://help.octopus.com/t/date-filter-for-octopus-apis/25111/3
