  1. Not too often, but occasionally we have to update a project or variable library with a lot of changes. It would be great if there was a way to lock the variable set so after someone spends 30 minuets updating the variables they don't get a message stating that they can't save because another user made a change during this time.

  2. I've been looking through the REST Api,

    GET /api/variables/names HTTP/1.1

    Seems to show you the names of the variables in use. But there is no existing way to get a definition of what these are through the REST API. This would be highly useful for automated testing.

    Some of these system variables are also used inside of the deployment variables. It would be nice to be able to have access to the system variables, in order to resolve the environment variables.

    This way a tester could read from Octopus deploy REST API, and execute specified tests.

  3. On the tentacle manager screen, we currently see the 'Home directory' and 'Logs directory'. How about also showing the default 'Application directory' to which the tentacle deploys?

  4. on the dashboard, if you hover a deploy, you will get more information on that deploy in a little info-box. We would like to see the same behaviour but for the environments. If you hover "dev" it will list you what servers it contains, and a little icon for if it's up and running or disabled/not healthy)

  5. I'd like to be able to 'tag' an environment with one or more variables and then be able to use these variables in my release process.

    My specific use case is that I'm deploying to Azure and want to set the slot based on the environment being deployed to (Production or Staging). This works nicely with the use of #{Octopus.Environment.Name} if my environments are specifically named "Production" and "Staging", but I'd like to be able scope my environments to project groups and this requires them to have unique names. So I name my environments something like "<project>-Production" and "<project>-Staging", unfortunately…

  6. Add an option to create a deployment package just like a zip file with parametrizable powershel script file and all packages as a single setup step for non-octopus driven deployment from the deployment steps.

  7. We have a host that controls UAT and production. They manually promote sites by hand currently but are open to something automated that they control.

    Internally we have a CI environment and test server but don't want to give access to the host to our intranet or active directory or expose our octopus deploy to the host.

    We would like to see the state of releases in UAT and production on the same board as our CI release.

  8. Sorry if this has already been discussed.

    I was creating some powershell modules and I noticed there is no option to set dependencies on other modules.
    This would be great. Right now I am using the description to track the dependencies, but is not ideal.

  10. While we make great of environments and machine roles for our production servers and devices, we still find it difficult to manage certain test scenarios without having to maintain a very large collection of test environments in order to mimic each distinct production environment. It would be nice to have an option, at the deploy time, to override or set certain variables, allowing a single test environment that can be dynamically configured to use various settings.

  11. Some of our services have large config files and we will allow some settings to be defaulted (not configured through the Octopus UI) and others must be configured. I would like a Project Level setting to be included that if enabled would decorate the deployed config file with some indication that Octopus overrode the setting. This would help tremendously to be sure which settings were defaulted and which were set by Octopus.

  13. Currently, OtcoPack considers a project a web application if a web.config file is found in its root. My stand-alone ServiceStack service project needs to have such a file when working with Razor support to enable intellisense support in VS. The web.config is never deployed however but OctoPack now deploys the project in web-style. That is, copying all binaries to the 'bin' sub directory while they should really go into the root. See https://github.com/OctopusDeploy/OctoPack/blob/fa2bbe0ce4b489316e090bf35f4d7d74d1d3a92a/source/OctoPack.Tasks/CreateOctoPackPackage.cs#L463

  14. Octopus Deploy has the feature to allow getting sign off/approval after a deployment completes, which is awesome! It would be even more awesome if there was an integration between Octo and TFS, where Octo would be able to retrieve the backlog items from the changesets in the release, and show their acceptance criteria. Furthermore, linked test cases to each backlog item should also be displayed.

    So something like a TFS acceptance test step, with child steps specifying each backlog item with their acceptance criteria. Then for each backlog item child step, assign child steps for the test cases linked to…

  15. We've had a couple issues where something in the Queue froze and stopped all future deployments. When it's a project that seizes up, we can cancel it, however when it is an internal task (e.g. Tentacle Health Check), the only way to fix the issue is go into Raven Studio. I know I can see the completed tasks, but I would like to be able to view the queue, and perhaps cancel jobs from there as well.

  16. I just set up a project where I created a variable called logfiles to use as a variable in a step template. I did that, and around the same time was looking at the documentation for how to do key/value pairs for web.config and I realized that I don't see a way to scope a variable to just configuration files or just the UI (or more intentionally NOT config files). My concern is that I will set a variable that ends up being a key in one of the config files and so I unintentionally update a value in the…

  17. I use powershell to determine information from TFS/VSO to store in the nuspec before octopack does its work. One of the values I set is the author of the package is the person that committed the build. Unfortunately this is not displayed in the library of the website.

  19. Via @DerAlbertCon at https://github.com/OctopusDeploy/Issues/issues/1063

    It would be nice if it may possible to set the --packageversion for octo.exe over the GUI.

    Currently i do this with additional parameters, but i would be nice if i can easy choose like

    latest
    same as releaseversion
    userdefined
    

    I stumbled over a problem that it was not directly visible that the latest version from nuget will be taken, it took me a while the get this and how to change that.

  20. I want to use Octopus to deploy an application without having to store a nuget package or create a release for it. The reason for this is that some of my automated tests are end to end tests that I run against a deployment in my WiP environment. If these tests fail, I don't ever want to be able to deploy that version of the application. The best was I see to do this is to be able to directly deploy a package through Octodeploy. Once these pass I could potentially create a release from what I just pushed or…
