  1. Support toast messages

    It would be useful to notify either all users, a team, an individual of some changes (step template to be deprecated, upgrade occuring) via a toast/message on login so that important messages related to Octopus/deployments are delivered via Octopus directly to the users that need to know.

  2. Allow Commit Comment when Saving Project

    On the face of it, a simple request... add am optional commit comment when saving an edited project. When going through the audit looking at project changes, it would be nice to simply read a project change commit message, when deciphering bit of JSON. It would be optional, so the JSON change is still available.

  3. Export Variables to JSON Should Be Same Order As UI

    Given the Octopus Projects are not source controlled, comparing projects is quite difficult, so I resort to Export process and export variables to json and then do a file compare.

    This is made difficult when comparing variables, as the json file is in no particular order. It seems the most recently edited variable is at the bottom.

    Can we please arrange the variable in a set order, perhaps the same as the UI.

  4. Separate permissions in the User Role "Project Contributor"

    Currently, in order to allow developers to access and edit variables, they are also able to edit process steps including disabling them. This means that they are able to disable audit steps before deploying.

    If process edit was a separate permission we could split out the ability to edit variables and the ability to edit/change process steps

  5. Export Audit as JSON

    When I use the Export function in Audit, the Details column is a mix of HTML and JSON.
    For example:

    <span>{<br> "Id": "variableset-LibraryVariableSets-76",<br> "OwnerId": "LibraryVariableSets-76",<br> "Version": 11</span><del style="background:#ffe6e6;">5</del><ins style="background:#e6ffe6;">6</ins><span><br>}</span>

    I understand that this is a way to show what the changes were, but this format is only usable for display in HTML, not for parsing the exported audit via any tools.
    Would it be possible to export this as JSON and indicate the change in some other, structural way?
    E.g.

    { "Id": "variableset-LibraryVariableSets-76", "OwnerId": "LibraryVariableSets-76", "Version": { "OldValue": 115, "NewValue": 116 } }

    Or in any other way which would…

  6. Option to hide Spaces in navigation

    Just upgraded to 2019.1 - the Spaces navigation item bothers me a lot. We only have one space, and don’t want more spaces (and won’t upgrade our license), yet I can’t seem to find an option to remove this. Something to add under Configuration > Features?

  7. make it possible to have multiple views saved of different environments used for different reasons

    Need to be able to save and recall defined sets of environments used for different purposes. For example, In-House vs Out-of-House.

  8. Import variables from .config file on project setup / first run

    When setting up a project for the first time, I manually copy and paste variables from config files (appSettings and connectionStrings) and it would be useful if I could have them imported and set to the value from the config during setup or on first deployment to QA / first environment. Given a large number of variables, this will be where most time is spent during project setup.

  9. Manage/edit variables in variable sets from the project level

    I would like to be able to manage variables in variable sets from both the variable set page and from the project level, when there are cases where I have included a variable set in my project. This will help reduce the back and forth navigation that is needed to make the necessary edits when I find I need to modify the variables that are in the set as I am maintaining my project.

  10. Add "Download latest version"-button to Octopus Manager GUI

    As a step towards automated upgrade of the Octopus Server (https://octopusdeploy.uservoice.com/forums/170787-general/suggestions/3033637-upgrade-of-octopusserver-through-octopus), I'd suggest that you add a "Download latest version"-button in the server GUI. This would make the upgrade a lot faster, instead of having to navigate to the Octopus web site and find the latest version manually.

  11. hide/retire/disable step template

    It would be great to be able to hide/retire/disable step templates from the Installed Step Templates view, so that our user would not be able to add the specific step anymore.

  12. Notes for Project Variables

    Have another column for the project variables for notes/documentation. This would allow for information about what the variable is for, possible lists of valid choices, what those settings do. Most are self explanatory, but some do need additional documentation and it is better than keeping this info in a separate location.

  13. Handle network card changes differntly

    We had an issue where Azure changes out our network card which caused octopus to hang waiting for the interface to come back online as if the cable was just unplugged. As the interface was changed this meant the service hung until it was restarted. We would like to see octopus handle this better / perhaps crash out when the network goes away for a longer bit of time so that the service can restart on its own and pick up the new network.

  14. Install Let's Encrypt module on Octopus Cloud to enable a CNAME for ODC instances

    With Octopus Cloud 2012.5.9 we can’t assign our own CNAME to the server instance due to the Let’s Encrypt module being missing.

    It is ok for internal use, but if we want Tenants to have access to see what we’ve deployed for them, then we would want to use octopus.mycompany.com not mycompany123.octopus.app.

    It might seem minor, but does Octopus use octopus123@yahoo.com as your public email address for customers? Nope, and we don’t want to either :-)

    Please add back the excellent Let’s Encrypt module in Octopus Cloud and route port 80 or just .well-known/acme-challenge/ to the relevant instance. Octopus Cloud…

  15. have a better way of handling parameters in arm templates

    When setting up a new ARM template for use in octopus we set the default value of all parameters to #{something} so that the 'parameter' page in octopus is auto populated.This works great for most values but if we have a secure string octopus will update the 'default value' in the arm which will show up in the deploy history in Azure. We would like to see some way to handle this so we can ignore updating the default value or auto-populate the parameters page without needing the default value or some other way to handle this a bit cleaner.

  16. Add security secret cleansing to Artifacts

    When Octopus attaches Artifacts it does not screen the for any secrets or credentials as such these can often compromise accounts etc that are used to create that Artifact, depending on what it is and how its made.

    It would be great if before Octopus attached the Artifact it looked to screen and cleanse the Artifact of potential Secrets there fore reducing the risk of it been used for security exploits etc.

  18. Display operating system version information on the Deployment Targets page

    It would be useful to see what operating system and potentially which .net framework versions are installed on a deployment target. I've got a variety of different server versions and in order to pick a baseline .net framework version I need to work out the oldest OS.

  19. Allow segregated package repositories

    In a lot of companies there is a clear separation between development packages and packages approved for production. Systems like Sonatype Nexus and Artifactory provide hugely powerful examples of these catering for a wide variety of requirements, but in most cases you need a simple set of requirements:
    * The ability to push packages to one (dev) repo
    * The ability to promote packages to another (prod) repo
    * The ability to force certain environments to pick from a certain repo

    This should be a relatively simple improvement to Octopus' very awesome but very simple package management capabilities.

  20. New Release Available could take admin to release compare

    As an Octopus Deploy administrator,

    I want to see the changes that would be in my specific upgrade in a single action,

    So that I can be more quickly informed of what changes will occur on upgrade.

    Basically looking for a quick link to this: https://octopus.com/downloads/compare?from=2019.2.4&to=2019.2.7

    As is stands, both of the values in the URL above are visible in the Octopus Deploy UI (relatively close to each other)
