  1. Most of our deployments begin by first copying existing deployed files/code to another folder as a backup. This is required in case a quick rollback is required.

    Would be nice if I could zip those files to save disk space.

  2. Allow Octo.exe create-release command line to specify an alternative NuGet feed than the one(s) indicated on the steps of a project.

    We have a DEV feed which is used for all development builds and development deployments. Due to circumstance beyond our control, we cannot have our development environment match all other environments close enough to want to promote releases from development.

    We have a MAIN feed that is for all other environments (QA, TRAIN, PROD).

    The problem we have is that a deployment step is tied to a specific NuGet feed. This means having to maintain two versions of a…

  3. I want to use Octopus to deploy an application without having to store a nuget package or create a release for it. The reason for this is that some of my automated tests are end to end tests that I run against a deployment in my WiP environment. If these tests fail, I don't ever want to be able to deploy that version of the application. The best was I see to do this is to be able to directly deploy a package through Octodeploy. Once these pass I could potentially create a release from what I just pushed or…

  4. OctoPack is a build time tool not a project dependency.
    Adding the developmentDependency attribute will allow other tooling understand this.

    see http://nuget.codeplex.com/workitem/1956 for more info on developmentDependency attribute.

  5. Currently when we need some tools (sqlpackage.exe, sqlcmd.exe, some DLL...) to be present on the tentacle for our deployment script we create a NuGet package with the tool and have to manually add a Deploy Package step for each tool to deploy it in a standard path so we can then use them from PowerShell scripts/

    It would be great to have a tool library:
    - we create a tool by specifying a NuGet package, a name and a description
    - in each steps (template steps or process steps) we can specify which tools is needed
    - when deploying the…

  6. When creating a release the user is given three options to configure a package version for each step, Latest, Last, Specifc. The default is Lastest.

    Allow the user to specify the package version default behaviour in each step.

    The user could then ensure a package stays at a particular version without having to set the version each time they create a release.

  7. Have an entry field that accepts the same sort of content as is seen in the transform window here: https://webconfigtransformationtester.apphb.com
    as well as maybe a file pattern/name to match the transformation to.

    This way one can avoid building multiple instances of an application, one for each build configuration (environment), transforms don't happen at build time and can take place as part of a deployment.

  8. Create an Octopus variable that contains the last installed directory paths for the steps in the project. This becomes useful if you have one step that deploys and another that works on the previously deployed step, but for some reason you deployed one set of steps first and later the remaining steps.

  9. The Variables section a Release page appears to show all variable that apply to the release, would it be possible for any variables which are obviously being overwritten to be omitted from this list?

    As an example, if I have a variable in a Library which is being overwritten by this particular project, at the moment both will appear in this list.

  10. It would be nice if you were able to configure defaults for deploy options. Currently they are all false by default. I never really had a need to check any on a regular basis until Guided Deployments are introduced but now I find myself checking this option with every deployment, which isn't optimal. I'm not sure if it would be best to be able to configure these on a per project level or perhaps project group level but it would be nice to configure their defaults somehow.

  11. On the deploy release page (the one that shows just before actually deploying a release) the channel (if any) is not shown anywhere on the page. Would be very useful to avoid mistakes when deploying.

  12. It would be useful to be able to run a deployment in "Debug Mode", where it would execute one step at a time, pausing after each step, so a developer can verify that it is operating correctly.

  13. It would be configurable and we could leverage the existing functionality of how the Health Check steps take targets out of the list for future steps.

  14. When a deployment is being executed, there may be some value in providing access to account credentials that have already been stored and managed in Octopus Deploy.

    While the primary motivating factor for creating the accounts section has been to provide access to deployment targets, some users may get value from using them to access or control other parts of their deployment process that sit behind some authentication mechanism. This would allow OD to better manage all the resources needed to fully complete a deployment with authentication details being securely managed in one place.

    The biggest concern with this approach…

  16. Over time, older releases that are no longer in use just crowd up the release screen. I want to retain their history, so do not want to delete them.

    It would be nice to be able to hide releases.
