  1. Calendar Control Type to set dateTime, for prompted variables

    We set a datetime in a javascript file that controls our countdown timer on our offline page during deployments. Our deployment guys asks if it is possible to have a calendar and time control to select the correct values instead of entering it manually to prevent incorrect formatting and user error.

    Thank you

      • Filter on environments in dashboard

        Could you add a filter for 'Environments' in addition to the current 'Project' and 'Project group' filters?

        We have a lot of environments in our Octoups installation (because we started using octopus prior to the tenants feature) and with the new virtualized dashboard columns we are no longer able to search for specific environments on the dashboard. We need this to be able to see what version is currently deployed to a specific environment.

        • Automatic variable inclusion

          It would be great if variable sets included a checkbox that would enable it to be automatically included in all future projects. Default behavior should be unchecked by default.

          For us, projects are often created by the developers and enforcing certain variables, scoped to Production, would be very useful for regulatory purposes.

          For example, any deployment to Production requires the user to include a Change Control number. We currently have to remember to include a user prompted variable that is scoped to Production, in order to capture this. This configuration often get's missed when new projects are created.

          Whether through…

          • Tenanted Variables

            After upgrading to this new version of Octopus, with the new UI, the configuration of tenanted variables became very counter-intuitive, it's very heavy while loading multiple projects and the color pallet makes it even harder to understand which environment is which, but the color pallet it's an issue in general with all of the UI of this new version, it's very confusing as you cannot distinguish easily between projects, tenants, variables, environments, etc.

            • Additional Filteroptions for the dashboard

              Currently the dashboard can get quit full if you have a lot of applications even if you sort filter them by project. It should be possible to filter the dashboard by more optiones then just project.
              Ideal filteroptions would be Timestamp of deployment, Timeframe for deyploments, environment, other tags like traget roles.

              • Keep task filter until removed

                When adding a filter to the task page, it does not save that selection when using the back to return to he page. It would be nice if it did as it does on other pages so that the task list could be managed/reviewed/monitored more easily

                • Cancel Multiple Tasks at once

                  Be able to cancel multiple tasks at once. For instance, I can schedule tasks to over a hundred tenants easily, but if something comes up and I need to cancel these for some reason, i must cancel each one individually.

                  • Allow for a global setting for the Dashboard Configuration

                    Being able to set the maximum projects settings for the Dashboard configuration on a global level would benefit our setup due to the high count of projects in our Octopus instances.

                    Most developers have configured their dashboards for their own projects/project groups but a new user, or a user who hasn't configured their dashboard, will experience long loads times on the Dashboard view so I feel that being able to configure that setting at a Global level (reduce the default setting of 200) would reduce the load time for those users and give them a better initial experience on Octopus.

                    • Packages library multiple file upload

                      We have to work with two instances of Octopus. One for development and one for test to production environments. This scenario doesn't have a lot of support. It would be helpful if multiple file upload is possible. Now we have to upload packages one at a time. Also option to download packages from a certain release would be nice. Now we have to download every package individually.

                      • Export step template to open source library

                        At the moment when we export a template. We need to make changes to the template before we can add it to the opensource library.

                        It would be great if we had a button "Public export"
                        Which makes the changes:
                        - Id => Guid
                        - Version ++
                        - LastModifiedBy

                        Or automatically creates the pull request on the github project.

                        This could increase the number of community templates in : https://library.octopus.com/listing

                        • Support freeze/blackout schedules for deployments

                          With an increased release cadence, it would be nice of Octopus supported the idea of creating freeze/blackout calendars that would either (by setting) outright prevent deployments (possibly allowing with authorization by a particular team) or display a warning that the deployment is taking place during a freeze period.

                          Ideally we would be able to associate these freeze calendars with projects or project groups, specify whether it is a warning when deploying or prevents deployment, and in the latter case which team or teams would be able to authorize bypassing the freeze.

                          • Always use latest package available

                            Hello, mostly in our projects we have two steps with two different packages one for database migrations and second for application itself

                            All applications share same database so migrations package is also shared

                            Suppose we have two environments: test and prod and projects A, B and brand new C project

                            Brand new C project was deployed to test environment first time week ago now it is time to deploy it to production

                            But if we will deploy it as is it will deploy week old migrations package which might brake projects A and B

                            So the question is: is there…

                            • Allow Package variable type for step template

                              I would like to create a step template to run some Postman test suite. For this I thought to pass the test files and environment files to the package. Extract the package somewhere, run powershell in the extracted package and call newman (command line runner for postman).

                              But I can't add a 'Package variable' to a step template (like for a deployment step.

                              It would be nice to have this as variable for a step template. In the process, you would then get a dropdown with the available packages, and a dropdown with the possible packagefeeds. The script would then…

                                • Add additional output variables to Terraform Plan step stating if changes required

                                  Terraform plan step currently only outputs "TerraformPlanOutput", however this always has values and is not easy to run conditional steps upon.

                                  When running terraform with the --detailed-exitcode (https://www.terraform.io/docs/commands/plan.html#detailed-exitcode), you're able to determine if there is a change required.

                                  It'd be good to output this as an output variable.

                                  Specifically, my use case is that if there are terraform changes required I want to require manual intervention (and send a slack message) for the plan to be approved. If no changes required then don't require intervention, don't run plan, dont send slack notification.

                                    We often have the case, where a release has been cleared from QAT, but we continue development on QAT until the deployment date comes along a few days later. As it currently stands, there is no way for us to prevent the lifecycle retention policy from removing that release, once we start deploying the releases from the next sprint to QAT. In other words, unless a release is kept as deployed in an environment, we run the risk of it getting deleted by the retention policy.

                                    It would be extremely helpful to be able to mark a release as "retain…

                                      • Project Branching

                                        Allow the ability to clone a project into a new "branch", make changes to process steps/variables, and then merge this back into the the main project when complete.

                                        Within our organisation our main projects are constantly being used for deployments which makes making any changes to process steps and variables a challenge.
                                        The solution I have for this at present is to clone the current project, make the changes I'd like, and then test these changes perform as expected.
                                        The final step of this is to then manually implement every single change I've made to the variables and process steps…

                                        • Show a confirmation dialog when the user tries to delete a step containing multiple child steps

                                          On the process definition page for Octopus Deploy projects, please show a confirmation dialog when the user attempts to delete a parent process/step containing multiple child steps.
                                          Prompting the user to confirm deleting n child steps would be a helpful feature to prevent an accidental deletion.
