  1. Re-think the new UI! It is awful!!!

    To be honest I am not sure why you changed your UI. Other than a bug when adding variables, it was fairly good. My suggestion is that you need to put a lot more time into your UI. The UI for version 4 is awful, sorry but it is and the version 3 was much easier to use. It took me an hour to figure out that what I thought was a table header for the variable list was how you add a new variable, was not clear it was an input form. You hide way too many things, took…

      • Fix bug in Step Template Usage

        There is a bug in v4.1.7 on the steptemplates/ActionTemplates-7/usage page.

        When viewing usage for a step template, the page displayed 'This template has not been used by any projects yet.'

        But when I attempted to delete it, I was warned that the template was used by a whole list of projects. I don't have access to those projects, so I suspect that the usage page is only reporting on usage within projects that I have visibility over.

        I'm not sure that I could have actually deleted the template, but it would be better if the usage page checked all projects.

          This is currently by design. The deletion check also needs to look at deployment processes that have snapshotted (i.e. deployments still in the system and not cleaned up by retention policy) however this operation can be expensive so it was best left for checking when the action is attempted rather than every time that page is loaded.

        • Redesign the UI

          The structure and layout of pages since the new material-design UI has been horrible, so much so that we are seriously considering move away from Octopus Deploy after using it for several years.

          The contrast of pages suck, blue text on white background makes it difficult to read.

          Every config/admin option has been moved and now harder to find, that coupled with the bad contrast makes it impossible to find options at a glance.

          Some elements have a fixed width, which results in text being cut off making it unreadable.

          The material design concepts are horrible and includes no visual…

          • audit log should record when a release is deleted

            When a release is deleted there's no record of it ever existing. The audit log should record when a release is deleted. Be nice to know which SOB deleted my release and when. Ditto for deleted channels.

              Deletion of both releases and channels are written to the audit log.
              They are recorded under the event-group “Document events”.
              If you are not seeing these, definitely contact our support.

              I hope that helps :)

            • Revert back to the old UI

              since I thoughtlessly upgraded to Version 4.0.x I cant use the GUI in an intuitive way any more.

              Such a "touchy" shit everywhere, :-((

                  We spent quite a bit of time optomizing the new UI to make it as user friendly as possible. Part of this involved taking guidance from well known design patterns such as material-ui. The font is not something that we have heard much concern about since releasing this version several months ago.

                • make it compatible with Microsoft Edge!

                  We have some machines especially admin machines that have Edge and we're trying to avoid using Chrome. This new material design is nice but certain buttons aren't responding on Edge!! Please fix this!

                  • Long Project Name with no spaces

                    For long project name that does not have a space in their name(underscores), the 4.0 UI should truncate instead of names overlapping.

                    • Enable a user to be setup who can only deploy a specific project to specified environments

                      Have created an Octopus project that restarts services. This removes need for testers to go on to box to restart services. However I only want to be able to give the testers the ability to deploy a project to specified environments. The Project Deployer role includes permissions I don't really want these users to have; e.g. ability to change steps and variable values.

                      • allow variable names to have aliases

                        There's lots of situations where we have multiple names for variables but logically they're pointing to the same value. For example while upgrading some naming conventions or for different technologies with different naming conventions.
                        Ideally you could set: databaseConnection and database:connection to the same value.

                        • Octopus deploy server listening on multiple ports

                          Making Octopus deploy server listening on multiple ports for communication with polling Tentacles:

                          Octopus.Server.exe service --stop
                          Octopus.Server.exe config --commsListenPorts=10943+10944
                          Octopus.Server.exe service --start

                          It may be useful for listening 2 instances of Tentacle of the same machine.

                            After adding a new variable, the focus moves to the top variable entry on the screen, when it should really go to the value field for the new variable.

                                • Clear up nomenclature re: Automatic Release

                                  You have a feature that you can enable on a Project called "Automatic Release creation". First, there's a distinction in Octopus Deploy with respect to a "Release" and a "Deployment" of a Release. In OD, first you create a Release. Then you Deploy a previously created Release. When going to setup Automatic Releases, it asked me for the Release Creation package step and the Channel. The first question alarmed me because it seemed to indicate that the created release would be subsequently deployed--which is what I don't want. I want to automatically create a release, but manually deploy (I'm deploying…

                                  • Change polling port

                                    It would be great to be able to configure the default polling port for tentacles. Our networks and security team have recommended changing the default port so that it isn't picked up by port scanners to find attack vectors because it is a known port. Can we change the default port Octopus Server is listening on?

                                      • New-ExternalOctopusArtifact

                                        We regularly surface artifacts in Octopus - usually through the script console, but sometimes within deployments. This is great.

                                        However, we'd like the ability to surface an external resource as an artifact. For instance, a hyperlink to a test report generated by a third-party and called via API during a deployment step.

                                        I initially saw this as different optional arguments on New-OctopusArtifact, say "URI" and "LinkText", however they may warrant their own cmdlet instead, and maybe their own subheading under "artifacts" when surfaced

                                        • Define api resources in raml

                                          It would be awesome to see the octopus deploy api modeled in the RAML spec (http://raml.org/) There is a lot of tooling around this spec including the generation of client libraries / documentation sites. I think this could really help with integrating external tooling to octopus deploy. For an example of what can be generated here is an example:
