  1. Add support for Venafi (Security and SSL) Certificate management

    We use Venafi (https://www.venafi.com/platform/trust-authority) to issue and manager certificates. It would be great if Octopus could integrate with this system to allow for issuance, import and storage of new certificates for the sites we deploy.

  2. Clone All Process Steps

    Cloning steps is a nice and welcome addition. Can we expand it to a Process level and have Clone All Steps to a different project?

  3. Enforce an expiry time/duration on an API key

    At present, all API keys for a user (service account user or 'real' user) do not have an expiry date.

    As a result, non-required API keys can potentially leave access open via this key.

    The suggestion would be to:
    - allow users to specify the duration of the API key/token
    - allow admins to specify the possible durations available to users/roles (e.g. administraters can stop users selecting 'unlimited' duration, and only allow 30, 60 or 90 days, for example)

  4. Create a server version of Octopus Deploy for JIRA

    The Octopus Deploy for JIRA plugin (currently Cloud only) is a nice feature, but a lot of companies use on-prem versions of JIRA. It would be nice to have a server version of the plugin that can be installed so we can properly integrate Octopus Deploy and JIRA, especially for the capturing and tracking release notes.

  6. Use Python Virtual Environment instead of root Python

    Using a virtual environment would be much more secure, and it would potentially give the opportunity for admins to modify the environment without changing the configuration on the servers directly.
    Also, it would give Octopus the ability to package Python as part of Calamari rather than the admins having to install Python on all the Tentacle servers.

  7. Create a Build Information step for GitLab

    We would like to include build information (commits) from GitLab into our packages so that we can automate the release notes creation from packages.

    The https://octopus.com/docs/packaging-applications/build-servers#build-information page states that "The recommended way to supply the build information is to add the Build Information step" but there is no GitLab step.

  8. View related infrastructure of a project

    When viewing the page, /app#/projects/--project_name--, add a navigation link called Infrastructure which when clicked shows all of the related infrastructure for roles for the project.

    I know this data can be viewed on another page, but it would be easier if I am already viewing the project to see where it is running without loosing focus on the project and needed to navigate to the infrastructure and filtering my roll.

  9. Add a Python Modules feature to script modules and script templates

    Adding the ability to have modules pre-installed gives much more flexibility to the Python scripting feature.
    Having this available the same way "Referenced Packages" is available to PowerShell scripts would be very helpful.
    Having it apply to Script Templates as well as Script Modules would be the best.

  10. Output more info alongside NativeCommandError

    Rather than throwing a standard PowerShell error stack (which is only helpful in a PowerShell script), there should be some kind of log output from the Calamari that gives an indication as to what the error is (in the case of Python, a full stack trace would be nice).
    NativeCommandError's are almost always unhelpful because the output is always truncated after "${env:TentacleHome}\Calamari\[version]\Calamari.exe" run-script

  12. 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

  13. 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.

  14. Support filter parameters for deployments API

    We have api https://octopus.buildium.com/api/deployments. This don't take channelId or projectId or environmentId. We needed this API to be returned filtered by these 3 parameters, so that we don't have to fetch large data and filter ourselves. Also this api doesn't have status value. for that we have to call api/tasks for each of the filters deployments to find if the deployment is Queued or not. Please give support for additional parameters or even created date also works. Also accomodate status value in response json.

  15. Give us control over log output wrapping of octo.exe

    We integrate Octopus into our Azure DevOps pipeline through octo.exe. The problem is that octo.exe wraps the output it receives from the server unconditionally to 80 characters. This does not make any sense.
    The net result - it is completely unreadable.
    Please, remove the wrapping or give us a flag to remove it.

  16. 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.

  17. Add a GitLab Repository Feed Type

  18. Support MSI artifacts for external feeds (in addition to nuget)

    Currently, we must build artifacts that are either a nuget package, maven package, or a zip file to be considered an external feed into Octopus.

    I would like to see Octopus also be able to pull in MSI files - we have a build pipeline that generates MSIs and places them in Artifactory. We cannot pull those directly as an external feed since the repo is set up as a "generic repository" type in Artifactory.

  19. Allow multiple and/or wildcard domains for Google OIDC authentication

    The GoogleApps authenticator in Octopus is excellent. However it limits you to specifying a single 'Hosted Domain' and rejects otherwise successful authentication if the user's email address domain does not match that one domain.

    We have a couple of use cases where we would like to allow multiple domains (with just one instance of the the GoogleApps auth):

    1) We operate two brands and so have Google Apps addresses for two domains. We can only enable one on of them for Octopus.

    2) We would like tenant users to be able to have limited access. It would be ideal if…
