  1. Allow login only to users in specific AD groups (white list)

    Any user that knows the Octopus portal URL can log into Octopus, which will create them a user on the Octopus DB and add them to the "Everyone" group, create entries on the Audit log, etc.

    Even though the user won't have any privileges out of the box, implementing a white list system to only allow people in specific AD groups to login would be something good.

    • Filter Environments Shown on Project Overview Page

      When I navigate from the dashboard to the Project Overview page, the page should only show the environments that I selected on the Configure Dashboard screen. Also, it would be helpful to filter the list of environments by channel or lifecycle.

      • Allow cloning Library Variable Sets

        Allow cloning of library variable sets so it becomes easier to create a new variable set for a new environment.

        • Install Octopus Server on Linux

          I'm in a Linux/Mac shop where chef server is the next best thing. If only I could install the Octopus server on Ubuntu the world would be perfect.

          • Manually force retention policies on tentacles

            Currently, retention policies are applied at the end of a deployment only. It might be good to have a way to force retention policies on tentacles outside of the context of a deployment. Maybe a button on Configuration -> Retention -> Top right corner, specific for tentacles.

            • Ability to reorder step template parameters

              It would be nice to have the option to reorder step template parameters just like one can reorder the environments.

              Right now step template parameters are displayed in the same order they have been created. If one does not pay attention to the order at that time then I can only export the json string, change the parameter order, delete the step template and reimport my modified version.

              Also if a step template is modified at a later time and parameters are added or removed, then the order of the parameters might be now incorrect. Imagine that I want to…

              • The order of the of the Config Files transform, replace and substitue should the same as the executing order.

                if you deploy a nuget you have various options to change config or other files with transformation and replacings.

                In the UI the Order is

                Configuration variables
                Configuration transforms
                Substitute variables in files

                But in the Process executing it is

                Substitute variables in files
                Configuration transformation
                Configuration variables

                please change to UI to reflect the process.

                • Clarify boolean logic of tenants & tenant tags on deployment targets

                  Multiple users at my company have encountered a fairly dangerous deployment target configuration behavior that isn't very clear in the UI. When you configure tenants and tenant tags on a deployment target, the logic is:

                  Specific tenants OR (tenants tagged <abc> AND <xyz> AND <etc.>).

                  The dangerous part is the OR. At first glance, beginners at my company have assumed that the tenant and tenant tag fields all have an AND relationship, so they select a specific tenant and various tenant tags that apply to that tenant. They assume this is straightforward, so they don't click the preview button that…

                  • Allow retention policies for packages only

                    Retention policies are great because our storage usage is getting insane with our hundreds of projects. Retention policies aren't being used because the release history/audit trail of previous releases is considered too valuable to remove.

                    Implement a package-only retention policy where old packages can be automatically removed, but without the need to delete associated releases first.

                    • Add Export/Import buttons in project UI

                      We have dev and prod instances of Octopus Deploy. I’ve created a deployment project on the dev and then we needed to copy it to prod. We didn’t find Export/Import buttons in project UI. My colleague opened https://octopus.com/docs/api-and-integration/octo.exe-command-line/export page and told, that it’s too complicated and it will be easier to manually duplicate all steps on the prod Octopus Deploy.

                      Could you please add to project Octopus UI Export/Import buttons , that will provide same behaviour as octo.exe CLI. It’s ok to implement just the simplest scenario with default parameters and have a note “if you need more control, use…

                        • Octopus Cloud - Packages - show total amount of space used

                          It would be nice to be able to see how much space packages are taking up for an Octopus Cloud instance and whether you are reaching the max amount allowed. The maximum space allowed in Octopus Cloud is not documented I believe.

                          It might be helpful to have this knowledge so we know when to use Octopus Cloud's built-in repository to host packages versus utilizing an external package feed from elsewhere.

                            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.

                              It would be convenient if the Tenant had a Description field for additional text describing the purpose of the Tenant. (Much like the Projects that have a Description field to provide extra info.)

                                • Certificates are too restrictive for Tenants

                                  Currently if you choose "Include only in tenanted deployments" when adding a new Certificate to your library you are required to:

                                  A) Select all of the tenants to be associated with that Certificate
                                  B) Select a Tenant Tag to associate with the cert

                                  This is restrictive. Why can't all Tenants just have access to the Certificate? When you only do Tenanted deployments you have to remember to tag the newly created tenant or go back to the cert and add them to the list. Its cumbersome to maintain.

                                  There should be a toggle for ALL tenants on the cert.

                                    We have a use-case whereby we need the same permission sets for a custom role across multiple instances of Octopus. So when setting up a new Octopus instance it would be great to be able to export that custom role from one instance and apply it to the other.

                                    • Synchronize external security groups task should ignore users that are disabled in check,

                                      Currently task "Synchronize external security groups" flags all non-existant users with a warning/error. This is the case even if the user has been disabled. the check should do either: Ignore user if disabled and not in "AD" or report error if user exists in "AD" but is disabled in octopus.

                                        Change the icon on the dashboard for deployments stuck on actual Manual Intervention steps and ones stuck on Guidance Failure steps

                                        • 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.
