  1. Azure Extension "Learn more about Octopus Deploy" link broken

    When installing the OctopusDeploy Tentacle Agent Extension in Azure the "Learn more about Octopus Deploy" leads to https://octopus.com/tour?utm_source=azure-portal&utm_medium=in-product&utm_content=about&utm_campaign=OD
    The only thing at that address is a "Page not found.
    We can't seem to find the page you are looking for. The page may have been removed, or moved somewhere else" message.

  2. Assign Worker Pool(s) to Environment(s)

    Rather than using cloud regions it would be much easier to assign a worker pool(s) to environment(s). We have a lot of security requirements and being able to use specific workers per environment would help us tremendously.

  3. Give us control over log output wrapping of octo.exe

    We integrate Octopus into our Azure DevOps pipeline through octo.exe. The problem is that octo.exe wraps the output it receives from the server unconditionally to 80 characters. This does not make any sense.
    The net result - it is completely unreadable.
    Please, remove the wrapping or give us a flag to remove it.

  4. Support for High Priority Deployments/Tasks

    Sometimes our task queue is filled with a lot of tasks waiting to be executed. Every once in a while a priority deployment needs to take place at the same time.
    In such case It would be very useful if we could mark this deployment as "High Priority", so that the tasks of this deployment are handled before the already existing tasks in the queue.
    This is not possible now, the only solution now is to cancel all the existing tasks.

  5. A project should have a unique identifier

    We run automation on our projects and found that each project does not have a unique identifier. The slug should be unique but we've found that when the project name has been renamed, the slug changes as well.

    It would be nice to have some unique id that cannot be changed.

  6. Upload of environment variables from .env

    I think it would be nice to have this feature on Octopus.
    So I was given a deployment task and I had multiple environment variables to upload.
    I am the lazy type so instead, I wrote a python script to enable me to upload all at once in just a sec.

    I hope this saves someone too

  7. Provide an option for step-templates to not require new release

    It would be good for step-templates to have a boolean (tick/slider) option for step-templates to not require a new release for updated versions.

    This would allow basic step templates to be updated without having to create new releases for multiple projects.

  8. Allow a Project to randomly choose / cycle through deployment hosts rather than deploy to all instances.

    Allow a Project to randomly choose / cycle through deployment hosts rather than deploy to all instances.

    This should be a configuration option for the default deployment setting and separate from the manual deploy to specific instances that currently exists.

    Potentially with the option to select the number of instances to choose to deploy to

  10. Allow the removal of the date filter from the audit display

    I can understand for performance reasons wanting to restrict the audit form, but it's incredibly frustrating to use the existing interface to find the creation date of an object when the date filter refuses to go away, and in fact seems to want to shrink to 1 month when wrestled with.

    I'm willing to wait a few seconds for the information I want. Just show it to me.

  11. Allow variables to be used for Channel Version Rules

    It would be nice if the Channel Version Rules had support for Octopus variables. From a management standpoint, when you have dozens and dozens of deployment steps bound to specific Version Rules, it would make sense to be able to make centralized updates rather than going through all of the various projects, channels, and associated rules in order to make the same update.

  12. Create a point in time restore out of the audit logs

    Add a button on the audit log screen to restore deleted items. I am specifically looking for the ability to restore deleted process steps or other unintended changes to the configuration.

  13. Allow specifying Machine Policy for machine in Azure Resource Manager Template extension

    Specifying Policy for a machine in a new Tentacle through the Azure Extension Agent would be valuable.

    In our scenario we use ARM templates for new infra structure as code for "cattle". The extension allows for dynamic creation of short-lived environments in Development.

    However, we want to utilize the Octo automatic de-registration of agents as dev infra is removed via Machine Policy. (Machines in Octo disappear when automatically after a developer is done with a VM.)

    Having the "Policy" as a parameter to the extension would allow this to be setup easily one time instead of a post-build step manually…

  14. Compress the Offline Package Drop folder

    I would like it if there would be an option to compress the Package Drop folder on a target location.

    I see it is now possible to deploy it as an artifact in .Zip format.
    But i would like it if we could deploy it to a file share in .Zip format without requiring somebody to manually copy it there.
    Each Offline Package Drop folder contains a Calamari folder that is 45MB unzipped and only 10MB zipped.

  15. Listing/viewing Active Users in Octopus

    It would be helpful to view active users in Octopus prior to placing Octopus in maintenance mode for Server upgrades.

  16. Show task estimate progress bar/percent on dashboard

    Similar to TeamCity, use historical runtimes of previous deployment steps, to know how to estimate a progress percentage (or ETA left) for the deployment tasks.

    Right now the Dashboard just shows a blue spinner with no progress bar or percentage of completion, so some 10-20 minute tasks I need to click on the activity to see how much its done to see how much is (roughly) left to go.

  17. Add "Request Deploy" button

    It would be nice if a deploy could be requested when you don't have permissions. For example our Acceptance and Production environments can only be deployed to by the Release Management team, so it would be nice to be able to Request a deploy from within Octopus for a certain release version.

  18. Support Azure DevOps Artifacts Universal Packages

    It would be nice to support Azure DevOps Artifacts Universal Packages feeds. We are slowly moving to Azure DevOps Artifacts (for artifact management only), and would like to use Universal Packages.

  19. Allow multiple version of 'kubectl'

    Currently Ocotpus only allows for one version of 'kubectl' to be added to the Octopus server. This means that all clusters targeted by Octopus must be running the same version of Kubernetes.

    It would add greater flexibility if we could add multiple versions of 'kubectl' and then choose which version to use within the Kubernetes deployment target.

  20. New Release Available could take admin to release compare

    As an Octopus Deploy administrator,

    I want to see the changes that would be in my specific upgrade in a single action,

    So that I can be more quickly informed of what changes will occur on upgrade.

    Basically looking for a quick link to this: https://octopus.com/downloads/compare?from=2019.2.4&to=2019.2.7

    As is stands, both of the values in the URL above are visible in the Octopus Deploy UI (relatively close to each other)
