What a great idea! The security benefits of the pull model can't be ignored and this would allow us to continue to use octopus while abiding by best practices!
Until we implement this feature, the work around would be to monitor the deployment using the API and cancel it if a timeout has been reached.
I have written up a script (https://octopus.com/blog/automating-octopus-with-azure-functions) that retrieves all running deployments for a project and cancels it if:
- it has been running for more that 30 minutes
- the first step has been running fro more than 20 minutes
- the first step has not output any logs in 5 minutes
This can run as a scheduled task. Alternatively you can use the subscriptions feature to kick off a piece of code (eg Azure function) that does this polling, as described in this blog post: https://octopus.com/blog/automating-octopus-with-azure-functions
