    Thanks for the suggestion and for voting everyone. I’d like to get feedback on where we should go with this.

    There are a few things in Octopus that already help with this – first, it’s possible to package your NUnit tests and run them as part of a package test (we do this ourselves), or to write a PowerShell step that pings your website to see if it is online. So the actual process of performing the tests is pretty easy. Do we need to write more blog posts/documentation to show how it can be done?

    The next part is viewing the test results – in Octopus 2.0 you can “attach” files to a deployment via PowerShell which are then uploaded and available on the deployment page.

    Viewing NUnit results XML isn’t that nice though, so I guess it would be nice to be able to render those NUnit test…

    This would be great. I think some sort of basic support for websites should be included. Just give OD a url and it hits it looks for a 200 result. That would be a place to start. Full UI testing would be more like what you specified above, but I would like just a built in 'sanity check'.

    Is downloading and double clicking an installer really that bad? The agents are all upgraded via a click in the UI. I think many other features would be much more useful than this one...?
