  1. On the environments page, enable desired state configurations to be created and applied to roles. The desired state could be achieved using script templates (similar to deploy process). The desired state could be applied on a schedule or on drift.

    There would need to be a way of updating the desired state configuration when something is modified in the deploy process ie. adding a new web site.

  2. In addition to displaying the project release version on the dashboard, it would be nice to see the associated package versions as well.

    e.g.
    Dashboard
    Dev
    myServices 1.0.1 (myWebservice1.0.2 + myWindowsservice1.0.3)

    At present, if you want to find out what package version is associated to a project release you need to drill into the project.

  3. There has been discussion about having support for Blue Green Deployments be a first class feature in OD. http://help.octopusdeploy.com/discussions/questions/239-blue-green-deployment
    I think it was even started in a previous release, but pulled out. Any chance it may come back in?

  4. It would be great if we could have a gate to deployments where project B cannot be deployed to an Environment unless Project A v2.0 has already been deployed to that environment.

  5. Unfortunately, I am forced to work with a very slow NuGet feed and the more packages I upload the slower Octopus is at retrieving them when creating a deploy. Fixing the speed of this is out of my control.

    It would be great if you could do some very simple caching to speed this up. Or can you simply limit the number of versions you get from the feed?

    Anything to speed up this up would be fantastic.

  6. We have numerous Windows servers running the Ocotpus tentacle service. These servers are running various versions of Win2008, 2012 and powershell. Different Octopus powershell scripts have different minim powershell versions so it's important to make sure that powershell is the correct version on each server. It would be very helpful if we could see environmental info such as Windows Version and Powershell version for each tentacle machine (perhaps on the machine settings page in Octopus)?

  7. It would be nice if Octopus supported process templates on a per project basis. This would allow the user to define multiple templates for any given project and select the template to use when the release is created. There are a couple use cases for this:

    1) Deploying multiple versions of projects that contain different components. For instance:

    I have MyProject v1.x which contains components A & B. This version is in the final stages of QA and is getting bug fixes that need released directly into the QA environment on a daily basis.

    Meanwhile I have MyProject v2.x which…

  8. Currently in the AWS console you can run a powershell start up script that will spin up new ec2 instances of a project.

    Having this as part of a deployment where you could configure a step to spin up X instances then immediately deploy the project to those instances during high load.
    Then when load is down, step to spin down the instances related to last deployment.

  9. Not too often, but occasionally we have to update a project or variable library with a lot of changes. It would be great if there was a way to lock the variable set so after someone spends 30 minuets updating the variables they don't get a message stating that they can't save because another user made a change during this time.

  10. We have a host that controls UAT and production. They manually promote sites by hand currently but are open to something automated that they control.

    Internally we have a CI environment and test server but don't want to give access to the host to our intranet or active directory or expose our octopus deploy to the host.

    We would like to see the state of releases in UAT and production on the same board as our CI release.

  12. I've been looking through the REST Api,

    GET /api/variables/names HTTP/1.1

    Seems to show you the names of the variables in use. But there is no existing way to get a definition of what these are through the REST API. This would be highly useful for automated testing.

    Some of these system variables are also used inside of the deployment variables. It would be nice to be able to have access to the system variables, in order to resolve the environment variables.

    This way a tester could read from Octopus deploy REST API, and execute specified tests.

  13. On the tentacle manager screen, we currently see the 'Home directory' and 'Logs directory'. How about also showing the default 'Application directory' to which the tentacle deploys?

  14. Sorry if this has already been discussed.

    I was creating some powershell modules and I noticed there is no option to set dependencies on other modules.
    This would be great. Right now I am using the description to track the dependencies, but is not ideal.

  15. When setting up new environments for applications, I find myself adding lots of machines that don't have a specific role (yet), but the machines already have the Tentacle installed and I want to add them to the environment in the Octopus Server to make sure the server can see, etc. so that when the time comes for the first deployment, all I have to do is assign the roles to the servers.

    Right now, my workaround is to use a fake role called "no-role-assigned", but I'd prefer not to have this role at all.

  16. We require a feature/step that would allow for MSI installation. It should include the ability to uninstall, reinstall, first time install. It should also have error reporting, and trace back to the logs.

  17. We need permissions around Step Templates. These need to be for: creating, importing, exporting, deleting.

  18. on the dashboard, if you hover a deploy, you will get more information on that deploy in a little info-box. We would like to see the same behaviour but for the environments. If you hover "dev" it will list you what servers it contains, and a little icon for if it's up and running or disabled/not healthy)

  20. We are using Azure Autoscale for virtual machines, when our machines startup and shutdown they need to be disabled in the octopus server to prevent deployments from hanging because some of the enabled agents are not running.

    Another factor of supporting auto scale would be to ensure a newly started machine has the currently deployed version of an application deployed.
