  1. Show default application directory in tentacle manager

    On the tentacle manager screen, we currently see the 'Home directory' and 'Logs directory'. How about also showing the default 'Application directory' to which the tentacle deploys?

  2. dashboard hover environment shows info of what servers it contains

    on the dashboard, if you hover a deploy, you will get more information on that deploy in a little info-box. We would like to see the same behaviour but for the environments. If you hover "dev" it will list you what servers it contains, and a little icon for if it's up and running or disabled/not healthy)

  4. Ability to bulk enable/disable all PCs in an environment

    It will be really helpful to be able to enable/disable PC/Tentacle environment wide.

  5. Scoping Variables to Only UI or Config files

    I just set up a project where I created a variable called logfiles to use as a variable in a step template. I did that, and around the same time was looking at the documentation for how to do key/value pairs for web.config and I realized that I don't see a way to scope a variable to just configuration files or just the UI (or more intentionally NOT config files). My concern is that I will set a variable that ends up being a key in one of the config files and so I unintentionally update a value in the…

  6. Queue Viewer

    We've had a couple issues where something in the Queue froze and stopped all future deployments. When it's a project that seizes up, we can cancel it, however when it is an internal task (e.g. Tentacle Health Check), the only way to fix the issue is go into Raven Studio. I know I can see the completed tasks, but I would like to be able to view the queue, and perhaps cancel jobs from there as well.

  7. Have a textarea for "notes" when promoting a release to an environemnt

    In our setup, TeamCity creates and deploys a package to the "Test" environment. Then upon approval, a specific package will be promoted (by a human) to higher level environments (i.e. QA and Prod).

    We need to write notes when doing so. i.e. Who approved it, etc.

  8. Batch add or remove roles to servers

    Adding or removing roles from clusters of servers that are 30+ servers is a pain to do one by one. it simply takes forever.

    It would be fantastic if I could mark all the servers that I need to manipulate roles on have one dialog box open. Add and/or remove the roles I need to change. When pressing OK my job is done: I've successfully added the 'awesome' role to 30 servers in less than 1 minutes.

    Also this would make my management work less error prone as today I might have missed a server or two in the process.

  9. I would suggest moving steps and related variables across projects with simple drop down. Similar to the way machine can be moved across pro

    I would suggest moving steps and related variables across projects with simple drop down. Similar to the way machine can be moved across environments.

    In our environment we add new steps and variables in a temporary project so as existing projects are not broken for the new steps. Once the development and testing is completed for the new step and underlying code is merged with baseline we move the steps from temporary project to one of the existing projects. This process is cumborsome where we have to create a new step in the destination project and copy all the settings…

  10. Configure environments per project

    I have a project in Octopus that can only be deployed to 2 of my 5 environments. But since the environments are for all projects and I made a mistake once to deploy it to one of the un-deployable environments now my dashboard show that version XXX is in that environment (but it's dark yellow since there were no processes for it). It would be a nice feature to configure allowed environments per project.

  11. add support for project specific environments, roles etc.

    We intend using OD for multiple clients which have multiple environments each. It would be nice to be able to scope environments, roles etc to one or more specific projects or to have some kind of client scope.

  12. custom colors for roles and support for assigning Font Awesome icons per role

    As we continue to find more ways to use Octopus, we've increased our usage of the roles feature. This serves the dual purpose of filtering variables/steps as well as being visual indicators on machine configurations when viewing the Environments page. It would be really helpful if we could assign a custom color to each role to make items stand out and faster to identity beyond using a naming convention. Even better would be the option to also assign an icon, which I think Font Awesome would be a great option. http://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/icons/

  13. usability - icon to edit project group from "projects" drop down

    If I want to edit a project group, I must first navigate to the "all projects" overview page. Would be nice to just have an edit icon in the "Projects" dropdown for easier access.

  14. Tag deployment process steps in list if they need to be updated

    On the process tab it would be really great to already there see if a step needs to be updated because the underlying script has changed.

    Also it really simplifies the configuration work if its possible to just click a button "Update all steps" which does exactly that..

  15. Show Project Groups Everywhere

    We use Project Groups to categorize our projects, but a lot of them have very similar names. When looking at Teams, as an example, the project selection only shows the project name without any grouping. When the project list is large, it gets difficult to make sure the correct one is selected. It would be nice if the group was included to help organize the projects, the way the main project menu works. The same thing would also be helpful in the breadcrumbs when navigating inside a project and really everywhere the project is displayed or selected.

  16. Create a built-in user role for subscription viewer and subscription editor

    As per the guideline on the user roles page, it is recommended to have the Octopus Deploy team create built-in roles where they are lacking. We have several users who would like the ability to view/create/modify subscriptions to get notifications about steps in deployment processes. At present we would need to either create a custom role or give them administrator rights for this. Please create a built-in role so we do not have the risk of managing this ourselves.

  17. Listing/viewing Active Users in Octopus

    It would be helpful to view active users in Octopus prior to placing Octopus in maintenance mode for Server upgrades.

  18. Octopus Cloud - Packages - shift click support with packages

  19. White background behind logos

    I added over 60 logos in an earlier version of octopus, many had white backgrounds rather than transparent, now they all look a bit off against the pale grey background.

    Ok ... this is a tiny thing but thought I'd mention it.

  20. Allow for a global setting for the Dashboard Configuration

    Being able to set the maximum projects settings for the Dashboard configuration on a global level would benefit our setup due to the high count of projects in our Octopus instances.

    Most developers have configured their dashboards for their own projects/project groups but a new user, or a user who hasn't configured their dashboard, will experience long loads times on the Dashboard view so I feel that being able to configure that setting at a Global level (reduce the default setting of 200) would reduce the load time for those users and give them a better initial experience on Octopus.
