Thanks everyone who provided feedback on this ticket. We published a blog post yesterday showing how to do PowerShell DSC with Octopus – everything from deploying DSC scripts, detecting drift, getting email notifications when drift occurs, and automatically fixing the drift:
With that in mind, I think many of the comments on this suggestion are “done”. But there might be some areas of DSC support that we still don’t do. I’d really appreciate if you could read the post, and let us know of any scenarios we’ve missed. If it looks like we’ve done nearly everything, I might close this UserVoice suggestion and we can open new, more targeted suggestions for any gaps.

The users of a system aren't always the administrators of the system. Upgrading the Octopus server requires the participation of the infrastructure team in my organization. I am an administrator in Octopus, but I am not an administrator of the server it runs on. With the recent pace of updates, it would be useful to be able to self-update, rather than request and wait.
