  1. Depreciate Variable Sets

    Variable sets cannot be deleted until all project, release, and I assume runbook references are removed. Since it can take a long time for releases to age out, a Depreciate flag that can be set once all Project references are removed would be great. This flag would prevent adding the Variable Set to projects (and hidden from the selector).

  2. Update documentation for "Updating Linux" runbook example to include additional successful exit codes

    A code sample at the following URL is incorrect:

    https://octopus.com/docs/runbooks/runbook-examples/routine/updating-linux#:~:text=To%20create%20a%20runbook%20to,and%20then%20click%20ADD%20STEP.

    The script under step 7 of "Create the Runbook" section (CentOS/RHEL) should be updated to reflect the existence of additional yum exit codes which indicate successful execution. Currently, this script does not account for exit code 100. From 'man yum':

    "DNF exit code will be 100 when there are updates available and a list of the updates will be printed, 0 if not and 1 if an error occurs."

    This can be corrected by introducing a compound conditional as follows:

    if [[ $? -ne 0 && $? -ne 100…

  3. Create a customizable drop down list for favorite projects (per user).

    We have hundreds of projects in dozens of project groups in Octopus. As a DevOps engineer I have occasion to work with many projects over the whole system.

    The filter by project and project groups are helpful. But what would really be helpful is the ability to go into a project - hit a * to make it a favorite, then on the dashboard tab have a drop down list of all my favorites that would take me directly to those projects.

  4. BUG: Resizing web browser deletes unsaved form data

    When filling in a form in Octopus Deploy, for example to add a deployment step or to add new variables, if you resize the window all unsaved data is lost.

    Whie I acknowledge this is unlikely to affect many people, I've hit this a few times when taking some screenshots for documentation purposes. It's fairly annoying.

    I think it happens when the page switched from one responsive layout to another. For example, when the project sub-menu hops from the left side of the screen to the top of the screen.

  5. Cloud: Support my local time zone

    I would expect there to be a place in setup where I could enter my local time zone. Then subsequently all dates/times would display in my current time zone. This would include dashboard dates/times as well as Release Versioning.

  6. Ability to set application URLs for each environment, allowing linking from dashboard

    It would be great if the Octopus dashboard, which displays the current releases of each application in each environment, contained links to the applications in the specific environments. E.g. if the box displaying details of the most recent deployment of Application X to Environment Y also contained a link to that app in that environment

    We presently maintain this info outside of Octopus, in Wiki pages etc, but it’s a pain to maintain.
    It would be great if this was directly available in Octopus, because the matrix of applications to environments is already there. Forcing users to access the links…

  7. Create RPM packages for Calamari

    For Tentacle deployment targets on Linux, you make RPMs clearly available: https://octopus.com/docs/infrastructure/deployment-targets/linux/tentacle

    However, for SSH deployment targets on Linux, there is no RPM (or apt, etc...) for the Calamai package. Most Linux admins (rightfully) like to manage deployment targets with Puppet profiles, or similar, and the idea of manually installing Calamari directly on the servers creates configuration drift, and goes against most devops principles.

    Could you make binary packages available for Calamari like you do for Tentacle?

  8. Add dates range in Octopus task filters

    if we can have date filter in the task section then it will be ease to get the data for a particular time period.

  9. Project Group as collapsible panel (like Expand/Collapse)

    Can we add collapsible panel (like Expand/Collapse) to Project Group. Most of the time I have to scroll down to search my projects, so it would be easy if we add expand collapse section.

  10. Allow a "not" mode for filters

    We have a dev cluster set up and working with octopus.

    One of the hurdles to creating ephemeral/adhoc debug/testing environments at the moment is the fact that we have to go in and manually map those environments in lots of different places.

    Ideally, we'd be able to create a resource (e.g. a kubernetes cluster, certificate, etc), that lets us specify that it is a valid resource for ALL environments EXCEPT production.

  11. Connect project to many tenants at once

    There is currently no way to associate a project to multiple tenants without going into each tenant one by one, finding the project, selecting an environment, and clicking Save. For installations with many (tens or more) tenants, this is quite inconvenient, and has resulted in hacky workarounds from third-parties.

  12. Add more regional support to Octopus Cloud

    Octopus Cloud is presently limited to three Azure regions (West US 2, West Europe, Australia East).
    Strict data sovereignty rules for some customers may mean that Octopus Cloud is currently not a viable solution.

    It would be good if more regions were supported by Octopus Cloud - specifically UK West and/or UK South.

    Also - how does Octopus handle high availability and fault tolerance if limited to only one region?

  13. Include description field for project and library set variables similar to project template variables

    It would be helpful to have a description field for variables in a project or in library set variables. I know the idea of having 'descriptive variables' usually solves this issue but sometimes across teams it doesn't always happen.

    To save screen space it could be a descriptor you enter when making the variable then when you mouse over the variable it shows the information descriptor.

  14. Process Editor with parent/child steps to frustrating.

    When I have a few Parent processes with some Child process in them, The Process Editor is very hard to use. You get that dreaded "Menu Options unavailable while viewing a parent or its child steps." Comment box appear. The problem is that there is no other way to do Parent tasks like add a child step now that you have a "parent or its child steps" selected. Only when you click into another Parent step can you access the Parent process menu. This is hugely frustrating when you are working of creating a bunch of child steps.

  15. Support the creation of custom permissions

    Octopus has the ability to create custom roles, but not to introduce new permissions. We would like to be able to add new custom permissions and then have both a REST api and script access that lets us test if a role has that permission. This would let us extend the Teams / Users / User Roles model to cover finer grained decisions more gracefully than a proliferation of user roles.

  16. Allow downloading and restoring configuration from audit history

    Currently the audit API can only return an HTML annotated view of the changes made to configuration elements like variable sets and deployment process. This is not helpful when the configuration is huge or when we need to find changes over multiple edits of the same configuration.
    Proposal: add the ability to download the raw JSON that was in effect after the change. The result should be equivalent to what we would get by clicking 'Download as JSON' after making the changes.
    This would allow us to:
    - create diffs between arbitrary dates, not just a single entry in the…

  17. Consider turning Octopus into a complete CI\CD Solution

    all-in-one tool combining source control (or VCS integration), artifact storage, package feeds, build & deploy pipelines.

    I love Octopus and have used it for years now. The flexibility you offer with your product in the deployment arena is awesome. Simple things I take for granted are not offered or a pain in other solutions such as Azure Devops.

  20. 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.
