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.1 vote
Scoping Variables to Only UI or Config files
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 config files.

Display package author in website
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.1 vote
Users without deploy privilege should be able to modify the variables controlling the deploy.
I.e. you can specify how a deploy is done, but someone else has to push the button.1 vote
Enable --packageversion over TeamCity Plugin
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.1 vote
Deploy without storing a package or release
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 go through a normal process to upload a package and create a release.
Currently, what I do is upload the package, create a release, run the tests, then if they fail, delete the release and delete the package. Otherwise I leave it and then push it to my next environment.
This whole process if managed through my Jenkins CI

Group order the Tasks page by Active, Queued, Recent
When I have many Queued tasks and then go to the Tasks page, I have to scroll down to see the Active task. I suggest the Tasks page be grouped by Active task, then Queued tasks, then Recent tasks.1 vote
Ability to view Release snapshot of all variables
We need the ability to view all the variables in a release snapshot including those coming from step templates1 vote
Specify PowerShell Version
Ability to specify version of PowerShell during script execution.
Currently tentacles use the default path, which is great most of the time! You could currently call PowerShell with a command line parameter but any scripts have to completely re-written to work this way, which defeats the simplicity of Ocotopus!1 vote
usability - icon to edit project group from "projects" drop down
If I want to edit a project group, I must first navigate to the "all projects" overview page. Would be nice to just have an edit icon in the "Projects" dropdown for easier access.1 vote
Enable one to be able to iterate a list of last installed directory paths for steps in project
Create an Octopus variable that contains the last installed directory paths for the steps in the project. This becomes useful if you have one step that deploys and another that works on the previously deployed step, but for some reason you deployed one set of steps first and later the remaining steps.1 vote
fallback on the instance count for Azure deployment
Today if I select to have the instance count use the count from the Azure management portal and an instance isn't pushed yet (if I had deleted it for example) then it will fail and I have to go in an set it to the value from the config file and then switch back to use Azure mgmt. I'd prefer that it would fallback to the config file if it's not deployed in Azure yet.1 vote
Octopus variable for Deployment Start Time for scripts
For PowerShell scripts it would be good to know the deployment start time.
This way later scripts can report how long a deployment took up to that point.
(A current workaround is to have a script run at the start that sets a variable for later use by other steps)1 vote
Integrated web file manager for servers
I find it important to check the actual contents of the folder i am deploying to, in order to be sure that everything worked as expected.
Wouldn't it be great to have an embed file manager to see the folders and the files of the server you are deploying to?
Every server, every environment, every project, with user management, and permissions...
this would come in handy, even without deploying something really, just checking files, altering something in servers, without having to remote desktop, or use ftp etc. All centralized.
Configure Default Deploy Options
It would be nice if you were able to configure defaults for deploy options. Currently they are all false by default. I never really had a need to check any on a regular basis until Guided Deployments are introduced but now I find myself checking this option with every deployment, which isn't optimal. I'm not sure if it would be best to be able to configure these on a per project level or perhaps project group level but it would be nice to configure their defaults somehow.1 vote
Export per environment/project release calendar (ical)
It would be nice, if it is possible to export all release dates to an iCal export.
This would allow to bind those release to Outlook or any other systen supporting iCal.
Currently we would like to have the export per environment but could imagine, it's also very common to have a per project view. The item must not include that many details:
- Time of release
- Release name
- Link to octopus release page
- Maybe owner?1 vote
Keep track of the task expansion view (all, interesting, errors, etc.)
The page should remember:
- Whether you like to look at the summary or output
- Which expansion option you are using
And default to it1 vote
Access control to edit Library by environments
I've setup global libraries. One is named Global which defines settings (across all environments) while i have other libraries named Dev, QA, Staging, and Prod. I'd like to be able to allow QA users have access to only edit the QA library similarly how they currently can only deploy to QA environments. They would be able
to define new variables that override the global variables for their environments to validate their testing needs.1 vote
Allow users to view detailed output log without deployment or enviroment permissions
The current readonly roles do not let a user to see the detailed output of deployments.
In larger enterprises, the dev teams can't deploy to production. However, they need to be able to see the output.1 vote
