  1. Negative tenant tag condition for deployment steps

    Currently you can set a condition to a step so that it is only run on tenants with certain tenant tags.

    If I know want to run one step on tenants with a tag but not run a second step with a the same tenant tag (different configuration for these tenants) I have to use conditions field instead. This gives a very unclear overview of the process as it appears to that both step run on tenants with the tag.

    Ideal would be
    * Step A run on tenants with Tag A.
    * Step B run on all tenants except…

  2. Deployment Steps - Loop Step with variable

    Hi,
    I have a service/container and I want to launch it in the same machine a number of times (variable to be applied per environment/tenant) .

    Do you have something for this? Can you put this?

  3. View related infrastructure of a project

    When viewing the page, /app#/projects/--project_name--, add a navigation link called Infrastructure which when clicked shows all of the related infrastructure for roles for the project.

    I know this data can be viewed on another page, but it would be easier if I am already viewing the project to see where it is running without loosing focus on the project and needed to navigate to the infrastructure and filtering my roll.

  4. Show the Project name on HTML Title instead of "Overview - Octopus Deploy"

    When you navigate to a project, you get to the Overview page as a start. When you open up many projects at once (cause a change triggered multiple CI for example, which should be deployed) all of them will show "Overview - Octopus Deploy" in the HTML title and as such it's also what's displayed on the browser tabs:

    You loose the ability to distinguish between these tabs. It also means that if you bookmark multiple projects then you'll have to change their title manually to have a valuable label for them. You have to click around them to figure…

  5. Add an option to the IIS deploy step that, when checked, restarts the app pool

    As an Octopus project builder, I need an option on the IIS deploy step that will allow us to restart the app pool after the deployment of the new web application so that code changes within the application can take immediate effect when deploying.

  6. Allow linking of the Enabled checkbox to a variable

    For various steps it would be nice to allow the "Enabled" checkbox to be linked to a variable. For example in the "Deploy to IIS" step template.

    This would work just like it does in the website bindings popup, each binding can be linked to a variable.

  7. Add "Download latest version"-button to Octopus Manager GUI

    As a step towards automated upgrade of the Octopus Server (https://octopusdeploy.uservoice.com/forums/170787-general/suggestions/3033637-upgrade-of-octopusserver-through-octopus), I'd suggest that you add a "Download latest version"-button in the server GUI. This would make the upgrade a lot faster, instead of having to navigate to the Octopus web site and find the latest version manually.

  8. Scheduled deployments allow select release versions

    Hi,
    We would like to select certain release versions in the scheduled deployment triggers similar to how we create a new release and can select a release version
    Currently it doesn't seem to be possible and it uses only the latest release
    Hope this can added in the next Octopus release
    Thanks,
    KK

  9. Improved variable grouping in UI

    Hello!

    While working with variables in octopus I thought it would nice to “group” variables so that it’s easier to navigate. This would allow someone to organise and reason about the variables easier.

    Anyways, here goes:

    A.B.C[Foo] = 42
    A.B.C[Bar] = 3.14
    A.B.C[Foobar] = 256
    The above naming of variables would imply that they are related in some way. Therefore it would be nice if the UI could display them as such

    A.B.C[]
    Foo = 42
    Bar = 3.14
    Foobar = 256
    Obviously this is fairly arbitrary in the use of the [] but I think the idea is clear…

  10. Enforce an expiry time/duration on an API key

    At present, all API keys for a user (service account user or 'real' user) do not have an expiry date.

    As a result, non-required API keys can potentially leave access open via this key.

    The suggestion would be to:
    - allow users to specify the duration of the API key/token
    - allow admins to specify the possible durations available to users/roles (e.g. administraters can stop users selecting 'unlimited' duration, and only allow 30, 60 or 90 days, for example)

  11. Add a Python Modules feature to script modules and script templates

    Adding the ability to have modules pre-installed gives much more flexibility to the Python scripting feature.
    Having this available the same way "Referenced Packages" is available to PowerShell scripts would be very helpful.
    Having it apply to Script Templates as well as Script Modules would be the best.

  12. Use Python Virtual Environment instead of root Python

    Using a virtual environment would be much more secure, and it would potentially give the opportunity for admins to modify the environment without changing the configuration on the servers directly.
    Also, it would give Octopus the ability to package Python as part of Calamari rather than the admins having to install Python on all the Tentacle servers.

  13. Support Python's 'logging' module rather than 'print*'

    Support python’s built-in ‘logging’ module rather than ‘print’. it’s very easy to use and supports different log levels out of the box, and logs to stdout by default. I am getting “name not defined” errors using the ‘printverbose’ command when I try to edit scripts outside Octopus.

  14. Output more info alongside NativeCommandError

    Rather than throwing a standard PowerShell error stack (which is only helpful in a PowerShell script), there should be some kind of log output from the Calamari that gives an indication as to what the error is (in the case of Python, a full stack trace would be nice).
    NativeCommandError's are almost always unhelpful because the output is always truncated after `"${env:TentacleHome}\Calamari\[version]\Calamari.exe" run-script`

  15. hide/retire/disable step template

    It would be great to be able to hide/retire/disable step templates from the Installed Step Templates view, so that our user would not be able to add the specific step anymore.

  16. Import variables from .config file on project setup / first run

    When setting up a project for the first time, I manually copy and paste variables from config files (appSettings and connectionStrings) and it would be useful if I could have them imported and set to the value from the config during setup or on first deployment to QA / first environment. Given a large number of variables, this will be where most time is spent during project setup.

  17. Notes for Project Variables

    Have another column for the project variables for notes/documentation. This would allow for information about what the variable is for, possible lists of valid choices, what those settings do. Most are self explanatory, but some do need additional documentation and it is better than keeping this info in a separate location.

  18. Handle network card changes differntly

    We had an issue where Azure changes out our network card which caused octopus to hang waiting for the interface to come back online as if the cable was just unplugged. As the interface was changed this meant the service hung until it was restarted. We would like to see octopus handle this better / perhaps crash out when the network goes away for a longer bit of time so that the service can restart on its own and pick up the new network.

  19. Performing dry run with octo.exe push (--whatif)

    Looking at the documentation for “octo.exe push” (https://octopus.com/docs/api-and-integration/octo.exe-command-line/push), but I cannot see any option to perform a dry run. The ‘create-release’ command has a ‘whatif’ param, and it would be really handy to have this on the ‘push’ command as well.
