  1. Octopus supports Terraform-Steps. It uses Terraform 0.11. Terraform 0.12 has been released and has a few breaking changes. Update the Terraform-Integration to be compatible with Terraform 0.11 and 0.12.

  2. Helm 3 is around the corner. Right now rc2 is available. Would be nice to Octopus could integrate with 3rd version of helm. Eg. Repositories will be available as container registries also. Are you guys plan to integrate with third version ?

  3. Like many others, we use Terraform to manage our cloud infrastructure and it would be great if we could create and manage our octopus setup in it too.

    This is a follow up to the question posted on the Octopus Help section: https://help.octopus.com/t/any-plans-for-an-octopus-terraform-provider/20853

  4. 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".

    Released  ·  Matthew Casperson responded

    Support for GCR feeds has been added to Octopus as an option within the existing Docker feeds.

  6. 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.)

    "In the Continuous Delivery book, Jez wrote that your deployment scripts should be in source control. After creating some pretty elaborate powershell scripts for Octopus, I have to agree. Losing…

  7. It would be nice if I could clone steps inside processes. For example if I want to deploy two nuget packages, I need to create one step to deploy a nuget and again create another step to deploy a nuget, instead of just cloning it. It's a waste of time!

  8. We're working on a few Mac minis to be our iOS build servers. We use (among other things) Homebrew as our package manager. For a variety of reasons, we need the Octopus CLI tool installed on these Mac Minis. You guys support MacOs, but it doesn't look like you've added the CLI to Homebrew.

    While I was tempted to add it myself, I figured I'd start with suggesting it here.

  9. I would love to see built-in support for Terraform (https://www.terraform.io/). Deployment steps for each Terraform operation like "plan" and "apply" and also a Terraform backend plugin for storing state.

  10. octo.exe is a great tool that wraps much of the Octopus Deploy API. It would be great if we could specify a parameter --output-format=json or --output-format=xml to have octo.exe generate its results in a machine-readable format for further scripting (e.g. in an environment where I have an older version of Powershell without access to modules such as Octoposh).

  11. As part of my TeamCity builds I like to check if a build that ran a deployment has passed/failed (because sometimes a deployment has suceeded but tests run afterwards in TeamCity have failed), and if it has failed then raise a defect via the Octopus API. I like to add the name and link to the build in the defect description.

    However, the the max length of the defect description box shortens the message posted. It would be great to see this increased.

    Furthermore, if links could be supported somehow then users could click on the link to take them…

  12. I know you are based in Australia, but if there is any way to have some limited support hours in the USA time zones, that would be extremely helpful. It's kind of rough only being able to get maybe one interaction per day with the time zones what they are.

  13. To create the ultimate overview on your Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) Dashboard it would be great if Octopus offers a widget where you can see the Octopus dashboard overview for your project.

  14. Currently it looks like Octopus uses the userPrincipalName when syncing/authenticating users from AD. Since the UPN may change (for instance when migrating users to Office365....), users will suddenly end up with a new account in Octopus when loggin in using Windows Auth.

    Using the samAccountName (as is more common) should allow users to keep their Octopus account/profile in situations like this.

  15. We have an environment where there are a mixture of employees / vendors who need different levels of access to different resources in Octopus. No problem. However, I've got a mixture, some who have just local accounts in our Gitlab & Octopus environment, and those who have AD accounts because they use Gitlab, Octopus & other resources in our environment. If it were possible select whether an Octopus user authenticates off of AD or local, that would be MOST EXCELLENT!

  16. We currently are writing many powershell scripts to work with octopus deploy as part of our deployment and then having to keep a copy in our github repo to be used by the devteam. I'd like a way for octopus to have access to the repository and notice there are changes and allow for a manual update, as it currently works.

  17. If we currently look in the current uservoice we will find many items regarding "Azure AD support", "Crowd SSO" or even "Two factor auth". I honestly thing that a simple way to enable those scenarios is to add an extensibility point for authentication mechanism.

    This will allow custom authentication (not AD or user/pass) be handled separately and advance in their own. I can see many scenarios around this, including teams and external handling of users with custom databases.

    For example, in our organisation we handle developer teams around the Github organisation so when a new user arrives it is just…

  18. Today /api/projects (and other api endpoints) has a default limit of 30 item per page.
    We would like a take parameter in order to get more than 30 items.

  20. In the Continuous Delivery book, Jez wrote that your deployment scripts should be in source control. After creating some pretty elaborate powershell scripts for Octopus, I have to agree. Losing those scripts or having them damaged would be pretty painful.
    I understand Octopus has backups, but it would be better to be able to get back to a previous version or see where the script had changed. Since we use GIT, I would be completely satisfied if GIT integration was all that you supported. :) I hope this is helpful. Thanks.
