      @Thomas

      Could you expand on the use-case. I assume you would not be using variable substitution, scripts or config transforms on the files in that folder? Do you use Custom Installation directories?

      A small correction, the path is extracted to `C:\Octopus\Applications\tenant1\Production\packageName\v_0.0.1` (ie packageName instead of projectName).

      Once the files are extracted we use that folder to run the scripts for the other features (eg IIS configuration, config transform, pre/post scripts).

      Could you use the transfer package step and then a script step to conditionally unpack the package? You could also have a script step at the start that figures out if you have to do anything, then sets an output variable that is used to conditionally run the next two steps.

        We are sorry to hear you are having problems with the new UI. Do you have any particular concerns or bugs that are cusing problems?

          In testing, it appears that deploying to RaspberryPI via a SSH target and using mono to run Calamari seemed to work just fine. Has this caused problems?

            A step with similar functionality exists in the Octopus community library

              Is there any reason the user script can't access the file in question and then just pass it to Octopus using the standard `New-OctopusArtifact`? It seems like this is the most foolproof approach otherwise we need to start considering if the external artifact needs authentication etc. It feels like making this feature airtight might just complicate a process that should be as simple to use as possible.

                Is there any reason that our existing proxy support does not meet these needs?

                  It is hard to decide how such a feature would be able to be natively implemented. The best suggestion would be for users to bundle an uninstall.ps1 script (to ensure that the uninstall process is tied to the version deployed) then use the Octopus.Tentacle.Package.PreviousInstallDirectory variable in a script before the "new" deployment step to access and invoke that script on subsequent deployments.

                  How would Octopus be expected to uninstall if for example roles are removed from a machine? We then no longer have any way of knowing what machines were involved in that release or if it should be our responsibility to now try and connect to something that has explicitly been changed to no longer be part of that deployment.

                      Hi,

                      I'm sorry to hear that this change caused some frustration. Long story short we've realised that we made a mistake and we've brought back the old way of excluding steps in v4.0.10 (https://github.com/OctopusDeploy/Issues/issues/3972).

                      I would like use this opportunity and learn a bit more about your workflow that requires you to skip deployment steps. Can you provide a bit more details? If this forum is not the right place to do that then please contact us via https://octopus.com/support.

                      Regards

                        Maven repositories like Nexus are now supported in 4.1. See http://g.octopushq.com/OnboardingFeedsMavenLearnMore for more details.

                          Is there any reason the package can't just be pushed to the NuGet feed initially rather than Octopus Deploy's built-in feed?

                                          @Christian There are some downstream issues with being able to extract packages on the tentacle/SSH side. Our extensible model does not (yet) reach that side of the system.

                                          What if we added the ability to add a plugin for a particular feed type (eg NPM, Artifactory) and the plug in returned a Zip compatible file (repacking it if the original is not).

                                          Is there anything in these package formats that would be useful after it is retrieved from the feed?

                                            Hi All,

                                            We've turned this suggestion into a GitHub Issue and are planning to provide a better way to handle this transition: https://github.com/OctopusDeploy/Issues/issues/3169

                                            That Issue provides a script you can use to achieve the same results right now.

                                            Hi! The dashboard will continue to show the untenanted deployments until they are no longer of interest for the dashboard. One workaround to this is to delete the untenanted deployments of that Project directly from the database once you have moved to "tenanted deployments only".

                                            Now that it's been a few months, has the untenanted row disappeared?
