  1. Allow wildcards in subscription fields

    For installations with lots of things it would be helpful to filter subscription events by wildcards. For example, "Prod*" environments to include all production environments.

    • Automatic, on-demand regeneration for server<->tentacle certificates

      As per https://octopus.com/blog/shattered

      SHA1 -> SHA256 upgrade is currently manual (or custom scripting). It would be good if Octopus could manage certificate regeneration on-demand, with an option to choose an appropriate, current cipher.

      • Change the ReleaseEdit Role

        The ReleaseEdit Role permits for updating the release variables, but it also allows for editing the release version, the deployment package that it deploys, and the Release Notes.

        The ability to update the release variables should be a separate role, say: ReleaseUpdateVariables, from editing the release version and package versions.

        ReleaseEdit should cover updating the release version, and the deployment package version it deploys.

        I'd also suggest adding third role for updating the release notes: ReleaseupdateNotes for appending to (but not otherwise modifying) the release notes.

        The idea is that different user should be able to be responsible for updating…

        • Grant access to Test Permissions to non Octopus Admins

          Our security and audit team could benefit from access to the Test Permissions function on the Team page as it would allow them to see an aggregation of all permissions granted to a particular user and how such permissions are limited in terms of scope.

          Currently this feature is only available to Octopus Admins. If a user has TeamView, UserRoleView and UserView permissions, then the Test Permissions feature exposes nothing that cannot otherwise be derived via the Teams and Roles pages. The key word here is derived. Manually building a map of users and permissions through these "keyhole" pages is…

          • Append domain name to the beginning of the AD group name in a mixed domain environment

            In an environment with multiple domains (such as `DOM1`, `DOM2`, and `DOM3`) you may have an Active Directory (AD) group in multiple domains with the same name (such as `ITSupport`). When you add the AD group `ITSupport` from two domains to an Octopus Team it lists ITSupport twice but it doesn't show which domain they came from. It would be better if it showed the domain name too such as `DOM1\ITSupport` and `DOM3\ITSupport`.

            • Showing number of installation of Community contributed step templates

              Hey

              As a user I would trust more on "step templates" which are more popular, for example there are 3 slack integration , but which one should I add. It would be great if you show number of installation of each.

              • Make it possible to specify the version of a step template

                I've just installed the File System - Clean Directory step template from the community library and I'm getting the error listed here - https://github.com/OctopusDeploy/Library/issues/588

                It would be useful if the UI allowed me to choose an earlier version of the step template as I now can't use the imported version. This would also be a concern if I had just updated a step template and the new version didn't work for some reason, I have no way to go back to the previous version.

                • Further implement RBAC

                  Properly implemented RBAC means Users in Teams have specific permissions, on specific objects. And no permissions at all on all the other objects.

                  E.g.: Currently Users in the role of Project Contributor, assigned in a Team, with a Project Group set to it, can still perform edits in projects out of their scope.

                  My intended use is for 'Business' Users to be assigned to a Team which allows them to see only their own projects, and not anything else. In these projects they should be able to promote a release to Production (or other stages).

                  • Allow audit items to display the actual Date/Time

                    Currently the audit screen only shows when an item was deployed or changed with 'x days ago', 'x minutes ago' etc.

                    It would much more useful to able to provide this information to an auditor (say when undergoing a SOC II audit) if this was the actual date/time.

                      • Environments per project

                        The problem is, when you have multiple projects, is not very common that they share the same environments.

                        "Production" for "Project A" means a very different thing than "Production" for "Project B". Different machines or group of machines in case of a web-farm, for example (Deployment Targets).

                        Currently, the only way that this could be solved, is by creating custom environments per-project (ProjectAProduction, ProjectBProduction), as discussed in the support site (http://help.octopusdeploy.com/discussions/questions/10999-environments-per-project)

                        But this is more a workaround than an actual solution. The home page Dashboard gets really messy, because you can't filter environments for certain projects.

                        I think…

                        • Include the project group field in reporting

                          We have started using the reporting feature and it would be really useful if the project group could be included with the data. We are dealing with a large number of projects so being able to filter reports by the project group is essential.

                          Many thanks,
                          Doug

                            Project dashboards allow tracking the deployment across multiple channels. I'd like the same capability on the MAIN dashboard... preferably as a filter.

                            if proj A has chans A1, A2, and A3, I'd like to be able to see all or some (perhaps only A2/A3) on the main/home dashboard

                            • Add a "Run Now" button for any step

                              I think during the edit of any step there should be a "Run Now" button.
                              The run should show a small popup to select the environment (and remember it) and then it should just run the step as is on the screen in that moment.

                              The results of the run should appear inline (or on a side bar) so I can edit/change the step and click again on "Run Now".
                              ATM to test a step during create/edit requires a lot of ceremony: Save Step, Create Release, Deploy Release, Select Environment, Click Advanced, Skip all other steps, click Deploy, review the…

                                . We have LOTS of environments (Horizontal Titles) and apps and not being able to see what app is where is a pain. I know you can filter, but it would be better at times to see the Big Picture.

                                  • Allow Teams to have a Team Administrator

                                    Currently only Octopus Administrators have permissions to update team membership.

                                    We should be able to elevate users to Team Admins for that team which would allow them to only update the membership of that team.

                                    • Make Better dashboard management

                                      Have the ability to search for Builds that you want to add to your dashboard. Having 100+ builds within many groups, finding that 1 new build can be very difficult.

                                      Have the ability to add entire groups to the dashboard and any new builds added to that group are automatically added to my dashboard. We have many teams that group their builds within a group, but then as they add new builds to that group they are forced to also add that build individually to their dashboard.

                                      • Change project grouping to tags

                                        Instead of a project only can belong to one Group, most of our Projects are part of a lot of Things. Microservices that both are general and related to a specific solution. Allowing for the possibility to Group components that make out a system and the Octopus user can then select the "perspective" aka tag that reflects their world

                                        • List/View Deployment Projects by Environment, Server and Role Tag.

                                          Would like a way to list/view all deployment projects by Environments, Servers, Roles with links to each project and perhaps summary data showing how many projects fit this criteria and when was the last one deployed to this criteria and what was it. This added to the Deployment target screen or simply add hyperlinks to tags and server names throughout.
