  1. Split out config file variable replacement so that it can be called external to Octopus

    We are using TeamCity as a CI engine, and trigggering OD from there. Once we have triggered a deployment, we want to run tests against that environment.

    At present, we need to have the required configuration settings in both OD and the code to allow the tests to point to this environment.

    We can currently use the api to get the variable values from a release, and duplicate the code from Octopus to update a config file, however this will be a maintenance nightmare as Octopus evolves.

    It would be great if there was a way to use Octopus to…

  2. add support to octopack to allow a choice of which Version attribute to use

    Currently octopack supports either msbuild override, AssemblyInformationalVersion, or AssemblyVersion and does so in a predefined way. It would be useful if this selection was customisable/controllable.
    E.g. If AssemblyInformationalVersion (which supports string) does not conform to a valid Major.Minor.Patch.Build scheme I would like to specify either AssemblyFileVersion or AssemblyVersion.

    I cannot specify the value of these to octopack via msbuild arguments because the version scheme itself is controlled/applied by a TFS pre-build script.

  3. Create an Azure Web Sites extension that acts as a tentacle to allow tentacle-like deployments OOTB

    Azure Web Sites extensions: http://azure.microsoft.com/blog/2014/06/20/azure-web-sites-extensions/

    How amazing would it be if you could add in an extension to your Azure Web Site that can connect to a OctopusDeploy server and register that website in a particular envionment with a particular role and have NuGet packages deployed to it?

    It would be a much nicer ootb experience then the current Azure Web Sites Web Deploy library item (which is definitely awesome, but it's not very seamless).

  4. allow html in the release notes

    Would it be possible to update the releasenotesfile switch on octo.exe to allow for HTML files? My build server currently creates an html report for the releasenotes, which i would like to attached to the release via the "octo.exe -releasenotesfile" switch but it always displays an blank section. If I attach a plain text file is works, but I would like to be able to format the report.

  5. Dependencies between modules

    Sorry if this has already been discussed.

    I was creating some powershell modules and I noticed there is no option to set dependencies on other modules.
    This would be great. Right now I am using the description to track the dependencies, but is not ideal.

  7. Improve web application detection by OctoPack

    Currently, OtcoPack considers a project a web application if a web.config file is found in its root. My stand-alone ServiceStack service project needs to have such a file when working with Razor support to enable intellisense support in VS. The web.config is never deployed however but OctoPack now deploys the project in web-style. That is, copying all binaries to the 'bin' sub directory while they should really go into the root. See https://github.com/OctopusDeploy/OctoPack/blob/fa2bbe0ce4b489316e090bf35f4d7d74d1d3a92a/source/OctoPack.Tasks/CreateOctoPackPackage.cs#L463

  8. Octopus variable for Deployment Start Time for scripts

    For PowerShell scripts it would be good to know the deployment start time.

    This way later scripts can report how long a deployment took up to that point.

    (A current workaround is to have a script run at the start that sets a variable for later use by other steps)
