  1. Integrate Octopus deploy project variables with Azure Key Vault

    So sensitive project variables will be referenced from Azure Key Vault instead of being stored in octopus.

    https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/key-vault

    3357461 - 'Azure Resource Manager Key Vault support' was only about ARM template Key Vault support.
    17973586 - 'Integrate Octopus deploy with secrets managment system Vault' is similar to this issue only for https://www.vaultproject.io

    This idea is similar to
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/vsts/build-release/concepts/library/variable-groups?view=vsts#link-secrets-from-an-azure-key-vault-as-variables

      • octo.exe pack should support a --exclude= flag (at least when --format=zip)

        The nuspec approach may indeed support excluding files. However the zip approach (--format=zip) doesn't. Per octopus documentation the .zip approach is the recommended way forward. In this light a --exclude option is in order to compensate feature-wise vS the nupkg approach.

        • Allow machine policies to be set for Azure WebApps

          I would like to be able to customize the Health Check of Azure WebApps deployment targets. For example I would expose an endpoint `/health` that must be queried on an ~hourly basis. In the case of a Tentacle this is possible using Machine Policies, but I can't assign one to a Azure WebApp deployment target.

          • Google Cloud AIM json support

            When application wants communicate to Google Cloud products for example databases it uses json auth file to authorize via Google AIM, in special case when app is in that cloud it uses local account, but sometime we want use dedicated service account so we still need that json.

            So I suggest to add support for upload these json auth files for example to Accounts, of course it should be scoped in futures "spaces".

            • Add a GitLab Repository Feed Type

              The new GitHub Repository Feed Type looks very nice! It would be really great to see the same of functionality with GitLab.

              • Version control configuration

                This was originally raised at https://octopusdeploy.uservoice.com/forums/170787-general/suggestions/6186352-version-control-of-deployment-scripts and closed as completed with a solution of scripting the import/export tool.

                Raising as a new suggestion as this has come up as few times in support calls and some people have suggested on the original thread that the import/export tool doesn't meet their needs. (Didn't want to reopen the original thread as some people are happy with the provided solution in that thread.)

                    • Integration with Microsoft Teams

                      Microsoft Teams already has a pretty great list of connectors, but one big one is missing... Octopus Deploy!

                      I would like to be able to receive messages in a channel when a deployment is complete, or certain events happen.

                      • Step for creating or updating a service in a Docker Swarm

                        As a DevOps Engineer, I would like to be able to create a new service, or update an existing service in a Docker Swarm using an Octopus Step.
                        For this to work for us, we would need to assign or alter Networks, Secrets, Environment Variables, and HRM Labels.
                        The commands involved would be "docker service create" and "docker service update"

                        • Support ZIP file for external feeds

                          External feeds currently only support NuGet package feeds. It would be good to support ZIP feeds, to support integration with products like Artifactory.

                          • Create an official Slack app

                            Whilst it is possible to integrate Slack in to Octopus using script steps at the moment, there are now some great possibilities with Slack Apps: https://slackhq.com/get-more-done-with-message-buttons-5fa5b283a59#.uw51h0tvy Steps like manual authorisation steps could be actioned through Slack, each step in a deployment could have an "output result to Slack" option etc.

                              I suggest you add functionality to display a badge showing the currently deployed version of a specific project.

                              In a similar way to http://shields.io/

                              In the UI you would show the link to use that would be an endpoint that displays a PNG or similar containing the project name, environment and currently deployed version.

                              • Ability to update releases from Octo.exe

                                Just like in the UI, it might be useful for some users to update releases from Octo.exe for things like:

                                - Package(s) Version(s)
                                - Release Notes
                                - Release Version

                                Worth considering if it should also update the Release's variables (in the UI that functionality is set in a dedicated button)

                                Possible commands could be:

                                Octo.exe Update-release
                                Octo.exe Create-Release --updateExisting

                                  • Define dependencies on PS modules/scripts hosted on PowershellGallery.com (or similar source) in script modules and templates.

                                    Allow defined dependencies on powershell modules or scripts (and versions) from a nuget compatible source such as PowershellGallery.com. Allow these dependency definitions anywhere powershell is used in Octopus. Tentacle should install the scripts/modules into the Powershell Session prior to performing any release steps.

                                    This would allow for more complex powershell modules to be made available for Octopus to use, as well as a means for keeping the PS code up to date outside of Octopus.

                                    • Default release notes for release created from package push

                                      When a release is automatically created from a package push to the private NuGet feed, it would be handy if the release notes from the release was generated from the combination of release notes in each of the packages in the release.

                                        An easy way to attach deployment artifacts would complement this feature very well.

                                        • Custom Release Properties Like Team City Build Id

                                          I'd like to capture some additional fields along side every release.

                                          For example, every release of my project, should have a corresponding:

                                          - Team City Build Number
                                          - Team City Build Type Id
                                          - Team City Build Id

                                          At the time of creating a release in Octopus, if done through the octopus UI - these values would be prompted for.

                                          If done through Octo.exe then the create release command should have the ability to set these release specific property values.

                                          The reason this is useful is because:

                                          1. The Octopus Release number no longer has to match the Team City…
