It could be great to have a place where we can use the tentacles to do some tasks without creating a release.
For example, in my release process I have the backup files and backup DB steps. I would like to be able to launch it without creating a release.
I see it as a new tab "tasks" where you can configure some task as you do for the process and it will appear as a button on the different environment where this task is available.23 votes
There are some active plans at the moment to provide a mechanism to allow tasks that can be executed outside of a release. Watch this space
When viewing details for a particular release, we used to be able to see any active deployments that are currently awaiting manual intervention. It seems this is no longer visible in Octopus 4.0. In order to view this, we need to go back to a project's "Overview" to see any deployments that have pending intervention steps to approve. This complicates the workflow.17 votes
Nithin are you talking about in the release page? If so then the deployment status should already be visible, including if it's paused for manual intervention (icon looks like an eye). Could you log a ticket through supportoctopus.com along with screenshots so that we can investigate?
The building azure steps only support running on the Octopus Server.
Please make it so we can run this from the Tentacles.3 votes
There are some active plans at the moment to provide a mechanism to allow tasks that currently execute “on the server” to execute instead from some external process like a tentacle. Watch this space.
