  1. Currently the dashboard can get quit full if you have a lot of applications even if you sort filter them by project. It should be possible to filter the dashboard by more optiones then just project.
    Ideal filteroptions would be Timestamp of deployment, Timeframe for deyploments, environment, other tags like traget roles.

  2. Being able to set the maximum projects settings for the Dashboard configuration on a global level would benefit our setup due to the high count of projects in our Octopus instances.

    Most developers have configured their dashboards for their own projects/project groups but a new user, or a user who hasn't configured their dashboard, will experience long loads times on the Dashboard view so I feel that being able to configure that setting at a Global level (reduce the default setting of 200) would reduce the load time for those users and give them a better initial experience on Octopus.

  3. The Tasks screen has various filters, but the appears no way to filter to display only the Successful task that had warnings. I was to be able to audit warnings periodically to uncover common flake issues and maybe address them.

    This is using v2018.3

  4. Text boxes (for example, the notes on manual intervention steps) give no indication of which part is clickable to focus the text box. The obvious places such as at the top of the white area or in line with the grey text that looks like a placeholder both do precisely nothing

  5. We're using the octopus little bit specific way for copy databases from the Live environment to staging, dev test.. etc. including anonymization and related steps. The most important functionality is the parallel processing.
    The most important functionality is the parallel processing.
    Anyway, the body of PowerShell processing is in our case same.
    Just every parallel running task is responsible to process only particular part.
    It leads to following configuration:
    OctopusBypassDeploymentMutex = $True
    and cration following structur in Octopus:

    1 Not important starting step

    2 Parallel procesing step part 0

    2.1 Sub-step 1 of processing part 0 where body of script

  7. Hi.
    I've started to look for an easy way to figure out which release of Octopus Server that can be considered stable, since my colleagues are depending on the software and they aren't pleased the amount of bugs that has been coming and going.

    I've been helping out on the community template

    http://library.octopusdeploy.com/step-templates/4b3a1f09-1827-41bb-88a4-894c6317922b/actiontemplate-upgrade-octopus-server

    which lets the Octopus Server easily do rollbacks, in case of major bugs.

    Michael Noonan suggested in this thread
    https://help.octopus.com/t/overall-quality-of-octopus-server-updates-are-integration-tests-being-applied-to-octopus-server-upgrades/19214

    that some customers uses the latest version of the previous feature release to make sure Octopus is semi stable. I'm very aware that even a stable version…

  8. This is a pretty trivial idea, but I like me some logos.
    I suggest on the settings screen when you pick a logo, that octopus could automatically do what I do manually.. and that is look up the twitter account that matches my project and the facebook account and... and show the logo/avatar of each, and let me pick one of those. (perhaps give the option to put a different name since sometimes the obvious name isn't the correct one)

  9. When setting up a step template, if a previously added, and configured feature has been removed from the Step Template, after which all the process steps that are using it, are updated. (Under the "Usage" section)

    I suggest you remove it from the applied features when running a deployment on a release. It's the WORST to debug something that has hidden configuration features applied.

  10. As of Octopus 2018.2.3, I'm experiencing a limitation for defining variables per tenant and environment.

    The current ability to define variable templates per project is nice (so we can change the value per environment as the project is deployed to those environments). However, it would be nice to have the ability to define a common variable template that is shared across all projects in the deployment per tenant, but can change per environment.

    I understand this can easily be done via variable sets, but it would be nice to be able to define everything in one place--not simply dividing configured…

  11. A typical scenario is described here:

    https://octopus.com/docs/administration/authentication-providers/active-directory-authentication

    (the diagram at the bottom with a one way trust)

    Per my thread with Octopus support, Octopus will not respect group membership of DomainA. This would be useful where the resource domain is managed by one group but the user domain (DomainB) is a shared corporate resource.

    Thank you for your time.

  12. Today we had an situation that somebody changed shared step template. We were more than surprised when we found out that there is no audit on step templates and we were not able to check who messed up. Please add audit there.

  13. When working with a large number of projects & environments, it easy to get lost if you are scrolling horizontally and verticle, If you were looking for a specific project in a particular environment.

  15. For every Tenant + Project + Environment combination, there are Tenant variables to fill out. When adding an additional Environment that is to have similar variable values, or if you need to swap out the Environment for a different one, it would be nice to be able to effectively "copy" the Tenant variables from the existing Environment into the new one. Otherwise you are left to manually copy variables.

    Sensitive variables could be tricky but hopefully doable.

  16. Have a checkbox in v4.x in the users profile to default expand all. This is the biggest visual shift from 3.x to 4.x, is the collapsing of content.

  17. DevOps Bashboard. An at-a-glance dashboard you can stick in a monitor with big numbers and charts showing all sorts of data. Could be useful for bright red error alerts, show statistics, maybe sticky a project overview. This would be a guest/read-only access account.

  18. I've discovered that by default no variable value is encrypted unless you set it as sensitive.

    In many cases having visible variable values makes it safer to deploy a release since you know what the values contain, but from a security point of view is not advisable since the variables are not encrypted in the database.

    To underestimate convenience in the matter of how variable values are handled by people, must surely be a bad idea.

    What I suggest is to
    - encrypt variable values by default in the database, but let the values be decrypted in the UI of…

  19. I generally like the new UI in version 4, but there are some oversights which are quite annoying.

    This one in particular has caused me to stop updating tentacles. When a tentacle needs a Calamari or tentacle update, there is simply no way to see this without drilling down all the way into the connectivity tab for that specific tentacle! If I click upgrade all tentacles in an environment, I no longer have any idea what's going to happen before I click it! The old overview was much more informative here. Please add some type of information or new icon…

  20. We use JetBrains TeamCity along with Octopus Deploy and TeamCity included a "one click" upgrade process for point releases in their web application. This is a very useful feature.

    Just in the last 3 weeks 8 minor point releases have been made available for install.

    I suggest Octopus includes a similar option for simple updating of the Octopus Server to the latest available release. We see the notification in the web interface right now, but a method to click and have it backup recommended configurations and update the installation would allow our Engineering teams to keep the instance more current.
