  1. terraform

    Terraform step templates for Azure deploys. Currently only AWS is supported in Octopus included step templates. It seems like an easy addition to the existing functionality

    • Rolling deployment parallelism per role

      We have an service environment right now that consists of two data centers that each contains 3 servers that host the services. These services hosts host 100+ services each and each server is hosting exactly one instance of each service; so they are in effect mirrored.

      When we deploy to these servers, we do it one data center at a time. Since there are so many services per server, we can’t just remove the server from the load balancer. Also since we do round robin load balancing and want to have zero downtime and keep consistency in our responses during…

      • Display channel description when creating a new release

        The selected channel's description should be displayed when creating a new release, otherwise a user may miss important information that is not fully conveyed by the channel's name. Currently a user would have to navigate to the separate channels tab to see this, which breaks the UI flow and which they may not necessarily do.

        • Allow adding tags for AWS CloudFormation Stacks

          Currently if I were to deploy a CloudFormation template using the AWS CLI I would have the option to specify tags for the stack.

          The tags defined at the stack level propagate to all AWS resources in the stack that support tagging.

          Since our stacks generally correlate to an environment such as 'staging' or 'production' it would be useful to supply an Environment tag to the stack and have this applied to all resources.

          Octopus currently does not allow us to specify the tags for the stack in the 'Deploy an AWS CloudFormation template' step.

          • Support multi-package deploy steps

            Allow package deploy steps to select multiple packages that are deployed in the selected order (with the ability to change the order). We have a website where we deploy a clean copy of a vendors files (makes upgrades easier), then we overlay different 3rd party modules and our solution into the same folder. These packages together create a whole website.

            • Terraform support for SSH Workers

              Currently the built in terraform steps only support Windows workers. It would be good if the steps were platform agnostic and able to run on any worker.

              • Mapping environments on library variable sets

                The issue I run into is the following:

                Product A: offers an API on several environments DEV/TST/ACC/PRD

                Product B: wants to use ProductA-TST on DEV/TST/QA
                wants to use ProductA-PRD on ACC/PRD

                I want the ability to make a library set of varables from product A so any other product I have can easily link to the API, without having to keep track of a url in the other projects variables. So if Product A changes the URL, everyone is automatically updated.

                But I might have more environments in other projects or want to map multiple environments to 1 environment of…

                • Make variable list usable for configuring IIS bindings.

                  When adding a binding to IIS in Octopus, you can only use seperate variable. Every binding needs a new variable. Some of our deployments have over 50 bindings. We create each binding separate. If we use a variable list only the last item of the list end up in de IIS binding. It would help us a lot if we could ad three generic bindings (Test, Acceptation, Production), en in the bindings use a variable list, containing all the IIS bindings.

                  • Bug: Last variable does not show menu (e.g. Open Editor, Change Type)

                    You are at the project/variable screen. Usually when you click on (or create) a variable you see an overlay menu with the option to open the editor or change the value type.
                    But this menu is cut off for the last variable in the list when it only contains a single value!

                    Workaround is to add a second value or use the search functionality to expand the space bellow.

                    • Add a Deploy Feature to configure file system permissions

                      When we deploy a website we need to grant the user running the IIS application pool access to the deployment directory. Similarly, when deploying a windows service, we need to grant the user running the service filesystem permissions to the deployment directory.

                      It would be great to add a Feature to "Deploy to IIS" and "Deploy to a Windows Service" that would set the file system permissions for the user associated with the App Pool or Windows Service.

                      We like to set file system permissions during deployments so we have one less environment-specific issue to worry about (ex: oops, the…

                      • Deployment of more than one certificate in one step

                        We need to put multiple certificates into the trusted people-store, and number of certificates must be configurable in one step.

                        Tried putting multiple certificates into the same scope for a variable, that only published the first one.

                        • Tenant (Project) variables UI improvement - toggle linked environments

                          We have around 50 Tenant project variables that differ per each linked environment (Dev, Test, Uat, Stage, Prod)
                          So imagine the current UI, we have to scroll down the list endlessly until we find the variable.
                          Tenant variables UI improvement suggestion:
                          1. Toggle linked environments project variables- meaning use accordion or panel widget for each linked environment, so when I click on one linked environment I would expect to see the Tenant Variables only for that linked environment. Currently all linked environments variables are displayed.
                          app#/tenants/Tenants-61/variables?activeTab=projectVariables

                          2. Add filtering / searching for project variables on the same page

                          • Change Type-Click-Repeat Dropdowns to Type-Click-Checkbox dropdowns

                            Sometimes there are 8 or 16 instances I need to manually deploy to because of a bad deployment or some other reason. For various reasons, I have to use the UI to do this and I may need to include or exclude 16 instances.

                            It can be a pain to have to type in the checkbox, click on the instance, and then repeat. It would be nice if I can see a dropdown with checkboxes so I can tick them without the dropdown going away each time.

                            Here is a good example:

                            • Deploy Docker Containers to Service Fabric

                              Presently you only support the old and standard way of deploying to Service Fabric but not docker containers.
                              Adding this as a possibility would be cool, and would also enable people to migrate their solutions into containers, which could, in turn, be used in migrating to Service Fabric Mesh in the future if needed. (Only supports container deployments and is currently in public preview)

                              • Google Cloud AIM json support

                                When application wants communicate to Google Cloud products for example databases it uses json auth file to authorize via Google AIM, in special case when app is in that cloud it uses local account, but sometime we want use dedicated service account so we still need that json.

                                So I suggest to add support for upload these json auth files for example to Accounts, of course it should be scoped in futures "spaces".

                                • Display more than 3 releases in overview

                                  Hi,

                                  The overview page seems to show a variable amount of releases. On one project it is showing 4, where only the oldest and newest deployments were pushed to prod. On another project it is only showing 3, again where the oldest and newest were to production.

                                  Could we simplify this and just have it show a paginated list of all the releases? You could then use the filters to filter the rows down (rather than columns as it does now, which isn't a filter if we're honest!).

                                  By doing this it will make this screen much more usable in…

                                  • Add Export/Import buttons in project UI

                                    We have dev and prod instances of Octopus Deploy. I’ve created a deployment project on the dev and then we needed to copy it to prod. We didn’t find Export/Import buttons in project UI. My colleague opened https://octopus.com/docs/api-and-integration/octo.exe-command-line/export page and told, that it’s too complicated and it will be easier to manually duplicate all steps on the prod Octopus Deploy.

                                    Could you please add to project Octopus UI Export/Import buttons , that will provide same behaviour as octo.exe CLI. It’s ok to implement just the simplest scenario with default parameters and have a note “if you need more control, use…

                                      It would be great to have the option to switch to a dark theme

                                      • To have a way to loop through all the in scope variables in bash

                                        To have a way to loop through all the in scope variables in bash
                                        there is an example in PowerShell:
                                        foreach($variable in $OctopusParameters)
                                        {
                                        # Perform the desired action here e.g.
                                        Write-Output $variable
                                        }

                                        Thanks,
                                        Monika

                                        • Allow defining an explicit order for prompted variables

                                          At the moment (at least to my knowledge) the order in which prompted variables are shown is dependent on the variable name (ordered alphabetically).

                                          It would be really cool if there was a possibility to give prompted variables an explicit order so that we can control in which order they appear in a simpler manner. For example it would be cool if one could just set a "priority" value for a prompted variable. This "priority" could be an integer and the prompts could then be ordered by this priority in descending order.

                                          Unfortunately giving them names to achieve the correct…
