Work has begin on providing a tool to evaluate variables before deployment
At the moment we don’t have further plans to apply config transforms before a release but this should help solve the bigger question of “what will my all my variable values actually be at run time”David Peden commented
I came here from http://help.octopusdeploy.com/discussions/questions/3312-test-variable-substitution-in-config-files and am following Vanessa's suggestion to comment here. Technically, I think these should be two different requests as one seems way simpler than the other.
What I really want is "Preview Transforms and Substitutions" more so than a dry run. Having to go through the whole build process to view the output is painful. Thanks!
