  1. It would be great if octopus has a project wise dashboard option where we can create visualization of project build stability like status of last 100 deployments , how many passed , how many failed etc

  2. Often times I need to update a configuration variable but, only once we are about to release a particular release.

    For example, if I'm upgrading my SQL server and moving to a new machine. I've got a release for the new SQL server version let's call it 2.0.0.0, however, I can't put my new connection string variable into Octopus configuration because I'm still deploying version 1 releases until it's time to migrate.

    What I would like to be able to do is specify that the variable for the connection string is X for all releases prior to v 2.0.0.0 and…

  3. Similar to most other entities in Octopus (e.g. Projects, Machines, Feeds, etc), it would be very helpful if the steps of a deployment process or runbook had an immutable and unique ID in addition to their display name. This would make referencing a step from elsewhere (e.g. reading output variables) a lot more resilient to change over time.

  4. Variable sets cannot be deleted until all project, release, and I assume runbook references are removed. Since it can take a long time for releases to age out, a Depreciate flag that can be set once all Project references are removed would be great. This flag would prevent adding the Variable Set to projects (and hidden from the selector).

  5. We have hundreds of projects in dozens of project groups in Octopus. As a DevOps engineer I have occasion to work with many projects over the whole system.

    The filter by project and project groups are helpful. But what would really be helpful is the ability to go into a project - hit a * to make it a favorite, then on the dashboard tab have a drop down list of all my favorites that would take me directly to those projects.

  6. For Tentacle deployment targets on Linux, you make RPMs clearly available: https://octopus.com/docs/infrastructure/deployment-targets/linux/tentacle

    However, for SSH deployment targets on Linux, there is no RPM (or apt, etc...) for the Calamai package. Most Linux admins (rightfully) like to manage deployment targets with Puppet profiles, or similar, and the idea of manually installing Calamari directly on the servers creates configuration drift, and goes against most devops principles.

    Could you make binary packages available for Calamari like you do for Tentacle?

  7. Permanent fix for Octopus-Jira integration to evaluate release notes for dynamic pckages.

    This is critical for end to end visibility in Jira.

  8. The Deployment Trigger should support multi-tenant logic. I am sure I do not have a unique environment that a test/staging environment is in a single tenant and production can span multiple tenants.

  9. I want to be able to easily store and use other cloud providers. At the moment only Azure and AWS is supported but I want to be able to use others. The ability to create others (such as DigitalOcean) would be brilliant.

    I would be happy being able to store the key and secrets and have Octopus set the values in the worker as environment variables that I specify (it would also be very useful to also be able to say that this variable is an environment variable rather than needed substitution).

  10. When filling in a form in Octopus Deploy, for example to add a deployment step or to add new variables, if you resize the window all unsaved data is lost.

    Whie I acknowledge this is unlikely to affect many people, I've hit this a few times when taking some screenshots for documentation purposes. It's fairly annoying.

    I think it happens when the page switched from one responsive layout to another. For example, when the project sub-menu hops from the left side of the screen to the top of the screen.

  12. It would be great if the Octopus dashboard, which displays the current releases of each application in each environment, contained links to the applications in the specific environments. E.g. if the box displaying details of the most recent deployment of Application X to Environment Y also contained a link to that app in that environment

    We presently maintain this info outside of Octopus, in Wiki pages etc, but it’s a pain to maintain.
    It would be great if this was directly available in Octopus, because the matrix of applications to environments is already there. Forcing users to access the links…

  13. Please add the name of the worker machine to the task log when a deployment is made. It is a small change which I think will be easy to add.

    Reason/Rationale/Context: We were working without workers/worker pool and we just had a few deployments that we were setting up to run on our Octopus server. My colleague added a worker and without me noticing what I thought was running on the Octopus server was moved to the worker. I knew I had the dependencies my script needed installed via Octopus on the Octopus Server (like a trusted root certificate and…

  14. Please provide integration with Azure App Configuration. We need the task to download variables in the process runtime. This will allow to use Azure CMDB and Octopus for deployments.

  16. When our Azure DevOps build runs it does a deployment to our Dev environment and specifies step names to skip with the Octopus CLI and the --skip argument. However there is nothing stopping someone from renaming the step in the Octopus process which then means we're no longer skipping the step. I would prefer that the Octopus CLI fail when doing a deployment with a --skip step name that does not exist in the process.

  17. Hi it would be useful to have execute scripts feature on Octopus for data config changes to be picked from jira.
    This will help to select dev env and validate SQL and use as test evidence to run on prod env.
    Auditing abilities on octopus can be further enhanced by attaching script execution to Jira also. All major releases have database changes along with binary deployments, it is imperative we keep audit history for data changes also.

  18. With standard octopus deployment there is a "deploy a release" step which can be used to run other projects from a parent project.

    It would be usefult o have a similar "run a runbook" step to be able to build up run books from smaller steps into bigger processes.

    Our use case is swithcing to DR, there are numerous steps such as stopping various services, starting other services, stopping replication etc. But, each of these steps is also useful in itself so we have steps effectively duplicated, once in the invoke dr runbook and once in a runbook all by…

  20. Currently our workflow for indicating/knowing what app/s need to be deployed for a Jira issue or a Jira release (of multiple issues) is to manually enter/bundle up these from the Jira issue descriptions which we fill out.

    What would be amazing though would be if the Octopus Jira integration plugin rendered a smart "section" into the Jira issue, where you could (1) select which apps need to be deployed (from Octopus), and (2) then get a read-only envs+releases matrix like in the octo dashboard so people can see where it's deployed currently.

    Furthermore, on the Jira release/deployment page (assuming this…
