  1. Hi.

    RE: http://docs.octopusdeploy.com/display/OD/Project+Groups

    Would be nice to have the ability to nest project groups. I have projects that are the same codebase but get released differently, and at different times, depending on the market (UK, FR, DE, etc).
    From what I can see I can only create a parent/child relationship one level deep at the moment?

  2. Currently, retention policies are applied at the end of a deployment only. It might be good to have a way to force retention policies on tentacles outside of the context of a deployment. Maybe a button on Configuration -> Retention -> Top right corner, specific for tentacles.

  3. By default, a Variable Set should apply to all projects, but it would be nice to be able to associate it to a specific set of projects.
    In our team, we have 13 projects that share a variable set. There's currently no way to restrict our users to only have access to those variables without having the same access to other variable sets for other parts of our organization. We don't want to have to duplicate those variables 13 times.

  4. We are working with projects as templates and thus almost always start from a template which we clone.

    To reduce the manual steps involved in the process it would be nice to be able to clone a project using octo.exe

  5. We are using multiple servers and want to export/import project steps between them. Right now the environments, machines, roles ..etc must match and the variables gets overwritten to import.

    An option to export/import project steps ONLY (and via GUI) will be greatly appreciated.

    For example, if we have a server for QA, then prosecution, which clearly have different environments ..etc, we want to be able to import/export between these.

  6. Currently there is no way to know if a secure variable has been set or not. Often times larger companies rely on other departments (prod control, ops, etc) to set sensitive variables, whereas the developers set the install steps for their application. There is no way currently to know if a secure variable has been set when deploying to an environment.

  7. We have lots of machines/tentacles with lots of different roles. It would be helpful if we could search all projects that use a given role. This would show us all Octopus projects that are assigned to a given role.

  8. if you deploy a nuget you have various options to change config or other files with transformation and replacings.

    In the UI the Order is

    Configuration variables
    Configuration transforms
    Substitute variables in files

    But in the Process executing it is

    Substitute variables in files
    Configuration transformation
    Configuration variables

    please change to UI to reflect the process.

  9. It would be nice if we could define a variable that is shown as a link for each application instance on the dashboard.
    What I mean is, that instead of just showing the version number, date and status it would be nice to have a link that points to the website (or whatever url we want) that got defined in the variables for the product.

  10. Multiple users at my company have encountered a fairly dangerous deployment target configuration behavior that isn't very clear in the UI. When you configure tenants and tenant tags on a deployment target, the logic is:

    Specific tenants OR (tenants tagged <abc> AND <xyz> AND <etc.>).

    The dangerous part is the OR. At first glance, beginners at my company have assumed that the tenant and tenant tag fields all have an AND relationship, so they select a specific tenant and various tenant tags that apply to that tenant. They assume this is straightforward, so they don't click the preview button that…

  11. Retention policies are great because our storage usage is getting insane with our hundreds of projects. Retention policies aren't being used because the release history/audit trail of previous releases is considered too valuable to remove.

    Implement a package-only retention policy where old packages can be automatically removed, but without the need to delete associated releases first.

  12. Define permissions on the project level to enable multi-tenancy to where a customer can access the Octopus server for their UAT environment and not see other projects and not able to make global config changes.

  13. It would be convenient if the Tenant had a Description field for additional text describing the purpose of the Tenant. (Much like the Projects that have a Description field to provide extra info.)

  14. when we have channels, you can select to group by channels or no grouping. We want it possible to per project or per user to be configurable what grouping to use.

  15. Currently if you choose "Include only in tenanted deployments" when adding a new Certificate to your library you are required to:

    A) Select all of the tenants to be associated with that Certificate
    B) Select a Tenant Tag to associate with the cert

    This is restrictive. Why can't all Tenants just have access to the Certificate? When you only do Tenanted deployments you have to remember to tag the newly created tenant or go back to the cert and add them to the list. Its cumbersome to maintain.

    There should be a toggle for ALL tenants on the cert.

  16. We have a use-case whereby we need the same permission sets for a custom role across multiple instances of Octopus. So when setting up a new Octopus instance it would be great to be able to export that custom role from one instance and apply it to the other.

  17. Currently task "Synchronize external security groups" flags all non-existant users with a warning/error. This is the case even if the user has been disabled. the check should do either: Ignore user if disabled and not in "AD" or report error if user exists in "AD" but is disabled in octopus.

  19. When searching for a Package in the Library permit the use of wildcards to optimise the searches.

    We have prefixed our packages with the names of our clients and it would be great to view all packages where acme* would return all acme packages

  20. I think it would be a good idea to have the option of grouping tenants for the purpose of organisation and not deployment:

    • A group does not have the functionality other than to group items
    • Grouping is optional and you would always be able to interact with tenants in the same way you do now
    • Groups have a name, description and maybe an image
    • A group can contain tenants and/or other groups
    • Tenants do not need to be in a group
    • Being in a group does not functionally affect the tenant

    The scenario:

    1. I run a business that puts up…
