  1. Permission attributes for variable sets, library variable sets, or even variable

    Add RO attribute/flag to variable set to prevent accidentally changes of it. Or even develop extended permissions linked to username, groups etc. For example in our Octopus environment we have default variable set in library for special package and I'm afraid if somebody will change it accidentally and it will affect to whole related projects where it will be used

  2. Preview Transforms for an Environment

    When updating Variables, it would be great to see what Octopus will change the web.config to when deployed to an environment without actually deploying it.

  3. Manually force retention policies on tentacles

    Currently, retention policies are applied at the end of a deployment only. It might be good to have a way to force retention policies on tentacles outside of the context of a deployment. Maybe a button on Configuration -> Retention -> Top right corner, specific for tentacles.

  4. Ability to disable some standard step templates

    We want to standardize on some templates that all developers can use for their deployments. That because we need to add compliance checks on all code before promoting to Production.
    the 'Run custom script' built-in step is dangerous because that opens the opportunity to do more or less anything.

    As an Octopus admin I want to disable some of the built in step templates.

  5. Allow cloning Library Variable Sets

    Allow cloning of library variable sets so it becomes easier to create a new variable set for a new environment.

  6. Allow login only to users in specific AD groups (white list)

    Any user that knows the Octopus portal URL can log into Octopus, which will create them a user on the Octopus DB and add them to the "Everyone" group, create entries on the Audit log, etc.

    Even though the user won't have any privileges out of the box, implementing a white list system to only allow people in specific AD groups to login would be something good.

  7. Change Polling Times

    From what I can see, there is no way to change the Polling times for Tentacle clients. The default is every 5 seconds.

    It would be good if we can configure this on an individual Tentacle basis and change the interval (maybe through the environment page).

    Due to our setup we can only use the Polling technique.

    This is our scenario:

    We have around 100 web servers spread across 3 environments, DEV, UAT & Production. We have configured this to go through a FW. As an outcome we are flooding our logs with trivial data on the FW.

    As we…

  8. Add the ability to delete releases and deployments from the dashboard

    Currently the only way for a release to be deleted from Octopus Deploy is using the retention policies. I think it would be a good idea to allow administrators to delete releases from within the octopus dash board. The administrator should have the following options:

    1. Bulk removal of releases - This would be similar to the retention policies. Remove all but the last X releases\deployments
    2. The ability to remove a single release. Selecting the release should now give the administrator the ability to remove the release
    3. Administrator should also have the ability to remove deployments as well.
    4. This should be…

  9. Support integration with STS based authentication

    I would like to deploy OctopusDeploy and have authentication being taken care of by an STS. This could be WAAD (wsFederation), ACS or directly with other social media identity providers.

  10. Allow custom dashboards

    Some of our ops need different dashboard views depending on what they are interested in at the time ... would be could to be able to save 'named' dashboard views that you can easily change in a drop down menu or something similar.

  11. Support the archiving of non-active projects

    From the following support topic http://help.octopusdeploy.com/discussions/questions/6809-archiving-projects

    Octopus deploy does not currently support a model for archiving/unarchiving non-active or legacy projects.

    The workarounds are permission-based or user-specific but not quite what I would like to see.

    what I am suggesting is similar to Teamcity's archiving functionality. I have found this ability in TC to be useful in the 7+ years I have been using it where I have accumulated many different applications, some of which are no-longer in production, some which are in production but in maintenance mode only and those in active ongoing development.

    For the most part I only…

  12. Support AWS S3 as Octopus server shared storage

    I am going to deploy Octopus on AWS. Do you have any plan to support S3 as Octopus server shared storage to store NuGet packages and artifacts?

  13. Set tenant "Common Variables" per environment

    As of Octopus 2018.2.3, I'm experiencing a limitation for defining variables per tenant and environment.

    The current ability to define variable templates per project is nice (so we can change the value per environment as the project is deployed to those environments). However, it would be nice to have the ability to define a common variable template that is shared across all projects in the deployment per tenant, but can change per environment.

    I understand this can easily be done via variable sets, but it would be nice to be able to define everything in one place--not simply dividing configured…

  14. audit search

    Please add search functionality to the audit log. The filtering helps but trying to find changes to a variable library for example is nearly impossible.

  15. Save Step Templates as Powershell instead of JSON

    The current JSON style templates makes it somewhat difficult to manage updates and changes. When comparing a template exported from my Octopus server against one from the community library (or GitHub), most of the metadata properties are the same and aren't interesting. What's more interesting is comparing the actual Powershell script changes. But having the script embedded in a single line of JSON makes it extremely difficult to actually make a comparison to see what really changed.

    Furthermore, in our organization, when we want to make a change for a template in our GitHub branch, pull requests are difficult for…

  16. Reorder variables on Project Variables Screen

    On a projects Variables screen, once we enter a new variable it stays in order on the screen. I would like the ability to drag and drop each line to a new position. This way I can ensure as I add new vars or update existing ones the ordering of them makes sense (at least to me)

  17. Make steps collapsable when they contain child steps

    When working with larger projects that contain steps within steps, the page refreshes often when making changes so this involves a lot of scrolling to find the steps you are working on. It would be great if you could collapse steps that contain children so there's a smaller list to scroll through.

  18. SSL Certificate Expiry notification with X Number of days

    It would be great to be able to set the number of days for which a Notifcation of an SSL certificate takes place.

    Due to a number of external factors we normally plan SSL replacements 60 days in advance so the 20 day expiry warning that is currently set will not be viable.

  19. Allow for teams to be excluded access to environments, not just included

    Currently in the Teams area you can either allow team access to All Environments or select which environments they have access to by including them explicitly. It would be great if we could select environments they should be excluded from (UAT, Production, etc).

    We're trying to take advantages of Azure and the ability to create test environments on the fly that allow our testers and developers to create environments for them to deploy to. Under the current access rules they need the ability to access all environments (leaving the Environments access field blank) or add each environment as it is…
