  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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 <IsOctoPackable>true</IsOctoPackable> in csproj that works similar to IsPackable.

    2. Allow dot net octo pack to point…

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. 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

  8. Please provide integration with Azure App Configuration. We need the task to download variables in the process runtime. This will allow to use Azure CMDB and Octopus for deployments.

  9. After pushing build information from a TeamCity project that was building some code from SVN (subversion) version control system, I noticed that while the package in octopus did have the commit section filled out as expected, the commits were NOT there when creating a release with that package. This meant that we couldn't automatically generate the release notes based on commit messages. I contacted octopus support and we eventually figured out that SVN is not supported.

  10. As per - https://help.octopus.com/t/deploy-a-release-accessing-variables-from-last-release/22788

    You should be able to access a previous releases Step output variables, for when a release has already been deployed.

    Either via the Deploy a release step.
    Or more generally to retrieve these values for a given release.
    E.g. an obtain Release information step

  11. The deploy release step assumes want to deploy to the same environment as the parent deployment.

    Add facility to pass a parameter to chose which environment to deploy the release too.
    E.g. so can deploy a single master release, which kicks off multiple deployments of other release to the defined environments specified by the parameters.

    Similar to how the community Chain step template allows for.

  13. I would love it if there were more options for filtering on the Overview page.

    I use this page as the main page I visit when searching for a release to deploy (e.g. to my dev or test environment). Since we have releases for every commit on every branch, it can be a bit of work to find the release I am looking for sometimes.

    What I suggest is:
    - A filter for channels (e.g. I want to only show 1 channel)
    - A filter for the version number/release name. This should essentially be a search box where I can…

  14. Currently the audit API can only return an HTML annotated view of the changes made to configuration elements like variable sets and deployment process. This is not helpful when the configuration is huge or when we need to find changes over multiple edits of the same configuration.
    Proposal: add the ability to download the raw JSON that was in effect after the change. The result should be equivalent to what we would get by clicking 'Download as JSON' after making the changes.
    This would allow us to:
    - create diffs between arbitrary dates, not just a single entry in the…

  16. We deploy our packages to our customer environments.
    For example 1.5GB of packages to 500 targets over the internet. As the internet connections can be slow and to make sure that the deployments all take place at the same (scheduled) time I suggest that the "acquiring packages" step optionally starts as soon as a deployment is scheduled and verified again at the scheduled execution time. Should the deployment package(s) be missing or corrupt at the scheduled execution time there could also be an option "re-aquire at execution"/"fail if missing".

  17. all-in-one tool combining source control (or VCS integration), artifact storage, package feeds, build & deploy pipelines.

    I love Octopus and have used it for years now. The flexibility you offer with your product in the deployment arena is awesome. Simple things I take for granted are not offered or a pain in other solutions such as Azure Devops.

  20. After completing and saving the clone project dialog, the page reloads and your are back on the project that you just cloned from.

    To be consistent with other software I regularly use, I expect to be navigated to the project that I just created from the clone command. At the very least, I would like some sort of obvious UI with a link telling me to go to the cloned project.

    On multiple occasions, I have cloned a project and went straight into deleting custom steps and variables that aren't needed in the new project. However, I eventually find out…
