  1. allow the Email Step to flag the email as High Priority

    A flag on the Email template step to send the email as High Priority. We use the Email template step (when any step fails) to notify that the deployment failed and it would be more convenient if we could set the flag for high priority. I could create my own powershell step, but I thought the out of the box email template step could use this feature.

    • promote a whole environment

      We have "major deployments". At this time we have to deploy all our applications (~ 70) at once. So it would be nice to have a possibility to deploy all projects from environment-1 to environment-2

      • Quick search for Releases no longer available in Octopus v4.0+

        Current configuration (v4.0+) uses dropdown control for Releases list.
        Previous implementation had combo box control and it allowed to do a quick search for large releases lists.

        Would love to have this feature back since currently it is not possible to do a 'contains' search among differently named releases.

        • Have an option to disable the Guest/Account question on the splash screen as I always want to login with an account.

          Logging in always takes a few clicks with the Guest/Account question. As a dev I never want to see the guest option. Can there be a way of preventing it showing - perhaps via a cookie such as "Remember this choice"?

            Hi Paul! You can do this already by disabling the Guest Authentication Provider: octopus.com/docs/administration/authenticat..

            You can do this via the UI in more recent versions of Octopus, or you can always do it through the command-line interface. Details are on the page.

          • Show Release Notes as a column directly on the Releases page for a product

            When you list the releases for a product you can see the Version and when it was assembled, but not the release notes. We have this connected to the git commit log so we easilly can see what is being deployed. Right now we have to click each item to see this information

            • Configure dashboard to allow selection by project group

              Provide an additional option in Configure dashboard to allow selecting project groups instead of just individual projects. This way if an additional project gets added to the group it automatically appears on your dashboard rather than having to look for and add new projects to the filtered list.

              • Set-OctopusVariable to support -IsSensitive flag

                The Set-OctopusVariable (and its counterparts for other scripting languages) should support an -IsSensitive flag such that if a variable is marked as sensitive it will not leak into a log.

                • First level support for HashiCorp Terraform

                  I would love to see built-in support for Terraform (https://www.terraform.io/). Deployment steps for each Terraform operation like "plan" and "apply" and also a Terraform backend plugin for storing state.

                    • Support for Kubernetes

                      The new Docker features debuting in recent versions of Octopus are really promising, and I'm excited by the Docker Compose RFC published late last year.

                      Kubernetes is becoming increasingly popular as the production deployment environment of choice for containerised applications. It offers functionality very similar to Azure Service Fabric, in terms of auto-scaling and self-healing of services and applications, but is based around container images rather than zip files.

                        • Skip deployment steps

                          I just updated to the new 4.0.3 version of Octopus. I do NOT like the process to skip deployment steps. It is hard to follow and see what is going on and takes way longer than the older versions. Please change this to something more like the older version where I can see all the steps and easily click on the ones I want to skip.

                          One of the people on my team couldn't even figure out how to skip the steps it was such a pain to find.

                            • Allow to mark a deployment step as mandatory (un-skippable)

                              Right now only manual intervention steps cannot be skipped during a custom deployment. It maybe good to be able to mark any step as unskippable.

                              • UI new version - exlude steps awful to use when having many steps

                                in our Deployment processe we have 25 steps.
                                on old version we was able to check or uncheck for example steps 1 to 10. in order to deploy first part or second part.

                                but now in the new version the exclude steps is not as esay. you have to open select box, select one step. the selectbox is closed. then you have to open it again and select the next step... 10 times... it is lot longer thant only chech on uncheck visible checkboxes.

                                i would expected an easier way but now it is an harder way...

                                  The users view that pages user into n number of pages, makes it a hassle to find a user when you have 100 or more users.

                                  I would like to be able to search for a user, and search across username, displayname and email address.

                                  • Make "Run on Octopus Server" a separate permission

                                    As it is now if you can change the deployment process, you can also set scripts to run on the Octopus Server. We want people to be able to change the deployment process, but not to run scripts on the Octopus Server. A permission or feature-toggle to restrict that option would be great.

                                    • Step for docker package selection

                                      As of version 3.7.12 it is possible to use the "Transfer package" step and use the selected package on custom steps (e.g. push it to an s3 bucket).

                                      However, when it comes to docker "packages" the only way to select a docker feed is by using one of the 3 default docker steps.

                                      It would be nice to have a basic step which would allow us to select only the docker feed and have that step export the image+version (tag) to other steps.

                                      In my case, this would allow me control the deployment of a specific image using custom templates…

                                      • UI new version - release list without comment

                                        we do not see anymore the comment on the release list.
                                        it was helpful to have a small remiinder of difference between versions

                                        • Add option to mask sensitive variable while typing it in

                                          While typing in the value of a sensitive variable, the complete value is always visible while typing it in.

                                          It would be more secure if there is an option to obfuscate the value while typing it in.
