  1. Update the Octopus Integrity check to ignore Azure SQL Replication Schemas

    Hi,

    We are using an Azure SQL DB which which is geo replicated to meet our DR requirements. As part of this configuration Azure adds two additional schemas to the DB (DSS and TaskHosting) presumably to keep track of the internal replication state.
    However this does cause the Octopus Integrity check to fail as it is not expecting to find these tables on the DB.

    I have also noticed that during upgrades (from 3.X to 4.x) it tries and fails to remove these tables which isn't causing any issues we can see at the moment but could cause issues down…

    • Specialized audit interface to easily track the changes to variables over time

      It would be useful to be able to track changes to a specific variable over time across all variable sets and projects. These kinds of changes are available now in the audit logs for projects and variable sets, but are very cumbersome to sort through if you are looking for a specific variable.

      I would propose an interface that lets you filter the audit log to a specific variable name (potentially utilizing wildcards as well) and limits the view to the values of that variable along with the scope and modified date. You should also be able to filter/sort by…

      • After scoping a variable to an environment, then filter the roles (target machines) to those that belong to that environment.

        It doesn't make sense to list ALL target after you have just scoped variable to an environent.

        • Configuration to synchronously load pages.

          After upgrading to the new UI (v4.1.0) I can no longer effectively use the browser's ctrl+F 'search' to search for e.g. variable names in the variable set lists as not all items are being loaded. You have to scroll down to load all the items on the page and then search for your item. Using ctrl+F is the quickest/easiest way of searching on the page. Please make a configurable option to switch to SYNC loading mode of pages as the performance gain of loading 100-200 rows asynchronously (on demand) isn't worth compromising on usability in my case.

          • encrypt all variables in the database regarless of being sensitive or not

            I've discovered that by default no variable value is encrypted unless you set it as sensitive.

            In many cases having visible variable values makes it safer to deploy a release since you know what the values contain, but from a security point of view is not advisable since the variables are not encrypted in the database.

            To underestimate convenience in the matter of how variable values are handled by people, must surely be a bad idea.

            What I suggest is to
            - encrypt variable values by default in the database, but let the values be decrypted in the UI of…

            • Selective health checks and tentacle upgrades targeted via filter

              See https://help.octopusdeploy.com/discussions/problems/65644-selective-tentacle-upgrades-and-health-checks

              In v4 it should be possible to select the targets to health check or upgrade via the filters. For example, I may only want to run it against a certain environment or tenant or against a certain role.

              I feel there has been some regression from v4 here because you used to be able to control this by environment. Now it's all or a single machine and for large environments makes staged roll-outs of upgrades and updates extremely time consuming.

              • Improve health warnings display to show upgrades

                I generally like the new UI in version 4, but there are some oversights which are quite annoying.

                This one in particular has caused me to stop updating tentacles. When a tentacle needs a Calamari or tentacle update, there is simply no way to see this without drilling down all the way into the connectivity tab for that specific tentacle! If I click upgrade all tentacles in an environment, I no longer have any idea what's going to happen before I click it! The old overview was much more informative here. Please add some type of information or new icon…

                    It would be great to have an option to have a banner which would allow to make announcements to users. We have over 600 and communicating to them is a challenge. This works great in Atlassian products like Confluence

                    • Link tenants-tags to project

                      In many cases not all tenant tags sets will be used for project deployments. Either because different projects use different tags sets or because some tag-sets are used for different purposes.

                      It would be great to be able to configure which tag-sets to display on the tenants selection section (Octopus 4.*) of the deployment page, allowing for a drastic reduction of display space and clutter when using this section.

                            We would like the option to manage permissions for which channels can be used by certain team members within a project. We have DB deployment specific channels stored within the same project as our app deploy, but do not want devs to be able to release on the DB deploy channel. Only DBA's should be able to.

                                    • Octopus Server/Tentacle service Installation wizard should offer "Service Account" as an Object Type when selecting the service account.

                                      Currently there is no option to select a Managed Service Account object type during Octopus Server/Tentacle service installation. The work around can be found below and is fairly quick, however we should offer this during the primary installation to save time and avoid confusion.

                                      Work around: https://octopus.com/docs/installation#InstallingOctopus-UsingaManagedServiceAccount(MSA)

                                      • Ability to disable some standard step templates

                                        We want to standardize on some templates that all developers can use for their deployments. That because we need to add compliance checks on all code before promoting to Production.
                                        the 'Run custom script' built-in step is dangerous because that opens the opportunity to do more or less anything.

                                        As an Octopus admin I want to disable some of the built in step templates.

                                        • Filter process view by channel

                                          We would like to be able to filter a process by Channel, to only show the steps that apply to one channel.

                                          For some of our projects, we have a process that only requires a few steps for one channel.

                                          To make it more apparent what the process is, it would be helpfull to filter the process steps shown by process.
