  1. Add an octopack option for dynamically creating dockerfiles

    It would be super helpful if I could add a dockerfile to my project and place a #ADDFILES variable in and have octopack dynamically regenerate the dockerfile for me as part of the build step so my output could be a zip file that was 'docker build' ready.

  2. Add option to collect artifacts in TFS/VSTS extension deployment task

    When triggering a deployment from a build system (TFS, VSTS, or other), it may desirable to collect artifacts produced by the deployment (via New-OctopusArtifact) back to the triggering build. For example, when executing integration tests during a deployment triggered from a TFS build, I would like to copy the test results back to the triggering build for publishing within TFS.

    The above can currently be done after the deployment has completed. However, it is challenging to ensure that the correct artifacts are collected since the deployment ID needs to be inferred rather than being well-known as it is within the…

  3. stop embedding html in the api

    We want to scrape and store events from the API so that we can aggregate events to help us understand our usage.

    Unfortunately this is made difficult by the embedding of HTML in fields that are inside the json that is returned by the octopus api.

    It is rather frustrating because there is a lot of useful information in the details field of an event but they are formatted with html.

    see https://github.com/OctopusDeploy/OctopusDeploy-Api/wiki/Events

  6. Machine api permissions

    It would be great if you could give your machines default permissions to call the octopus API. That way I would not need to expose API keys in source control.

    This would be similar to the way AWS supports machine Instance Roles.

    This could be something admins within octopus could setup. Ideally you could specify a set of permissions and apply that to the server. The level of permission you grant the server can be set on a machine by machine basis. This would make interacting with the API far easier.

  7. Quick Navigation shortcut key

    Recently discovered the quick navigation shortcut in TeamCity and use it constantly! Would love to see this feature implemented in Octopus Deploy as well, including the type ahead functionality and arrow keys support, for quick navigation.

  8. Cloud Foundry Support (Pivotal)

    We've started looking into handling container deployments with Pivotal Web Services, it'd be great to add Cloud Foundry support as a deployment option, similar to AWS or Azure.

  9. Channel display improvements

    1) Highlight channel name (make it bold and/or different color) on the project's overview page.

    2) Add channel name to deployment status on Dashboard (next to release number and date).

  10. Make it possible to append a build number when using OctoPack

    Octopack can parse AssemblyVesion attributes to extract version information, which is great. This enabled me to control the version of the generated NuGetPackage at the time when I check in my project. I like that. My build server generates new packages for every commit to out repository (even though the version might now have changed). Therefore I would like to be able to append the build number to the package Id. This could be done using an OctoPack parameter "OctoPackBuildNumber"

    Example: AssemblyInfo.cs: [assembly: AssemblyVersion("3.5.0.1")]
    then the buildserver passes in: /OctoPackBuildNumber -build%build.number%

    Result:

    MyProject.3.5.0-build5551.nupkg

  11. Certificate pinning of external feeds

    When setting up an external Package Feed we'd like to be able to pin the SSL certificate thumbprint of the external feed to make it even more unlikely we'd accidentally fetch packages from a source through DNS poisoning, redirect or or man-in-the-middle attack.

  12. Use Visual Studio Construct a Octopus Project

    Octopus was born out of a desire to help .NET developers, why not have someone try this...

    Create a custom project type for Visual Studio for Octopus Projects that incorporate these json files.

    That would allow a GUI that can easily and ready be documented, it would allow us to integrate them with our source control tools, and more closely align our Octopus projects with our work.

    I wish I had those skills, I'm more of a DBA/BI Developer, but I think this idea could work, thoughts?

  13. Find() methods for DeploymentProcesses API

    There does not seem to be a direct way of requesting more than one DeploymentProcess from the API. I am working on a tool that needs to determine all projects that have deployment processes that have steps with a specific TargetRole. As it is, I have to iterate over every project (hundreds of them in our case) and request each process individually to interrogate the step information. I would be better if I could paginate over the processes directly and only request the projects I care about.

  14. Notification after each step

    It would be useful to be able to set up notifications after each step. In our case, specifically, we would like to notify Slack after each completed step.
    I've seen the library script that you can use to add a step to a deployment process to notify Slack, but that would mean notifying Slack only after a deployment is complete. Some of our deployments take a long time and we would like to be able to follow their progress in Slack, i.e. get OctopusDeploy to notify Slack after each individual step.

  16. Create a connector/plugin for Hygieia DevOps Dashboard

    I'd like to see a plugin for Octopus deployments to integrate into the continuous delivery process displayed in Hygieia. This would make octopus deploy part of a comprehensive view of work. Hygieia is a DevOps Dashboard to track development. More info and a link to a video explaining the benefits are here: https://github.com/capitalone/Hygieia

  17. Impersonate user via API (or override created by field)

    We use Octo.exe in TFS CI Builds that starts the deployment of the project in Octopus Deploy (OD) to our development environment, using a specific OD user (called TFS Service User). This has been working flawlessly, however it restricts the audit history and (email) notifications away from who "really" started the deployment (the user that check-in). As it always ends up saying/using "TFS Service User (tfs@domain.com)".

    It would be nice to be able to create and start the deployment (via Octo.exe) with a provided username to "impersonate".

  18. Octopack for Portable Libraries aka MonoAndroid

    Add support for Octopack Nuget so that MonoAndroid and Portable Libraries can be packed with Octopack.

    Currently unable to install Octopack to portable library:
    Could not install package 'OctoPack 3.0.44'. You are trying to install this package into a project that targets 'portable-net45 ....... (and so forth) ..

  19. Webhook for notification that a release was created

    I would like to register a webhook after a new environment is created or when a new release is created. I am currently auto creating environments when a new feature branch is created, but we do not have a great way to auto deploy new releases to the appropriate environment yet. We currently have to poll all the releases and inspect the release notes to determine if we should deploy the release to a specific environment. Having a webhook for a release creation will allow us to support our GitFlow workflow.

  20. Optionally serve artifact files inline (like TeamCity does) instead of downloading them

    If there were a mechanism for serving artifact files, we could
    (i) run some lightweight javascript to do things like load-on-demand
    (ii) provide a more integrated user experience (opening a file from downloads feels clunky)

    The mechanism could be to show artifact files in tabs in the approval step and completed release summary pages. There could be an 'add artifact tab' option in settings, which allowed you to name the tab and specifiy the artifact file to be displayed.

    TeamCity allows you to serve artifacts from tabs in build results through project config options - https://confluence.jetbrains.com/display/TCD9/Including+Third-Party+Reports+in+the+Build+Results
