As of today (around 3 hours ago) the Create Octopus Release and Deploy task from the Azure DevOps integration is no longer functional. The builds were working this morning, but now all fail with the same error saying “The Octo command line tool wasn’t found in tools directory”. The Azure DevOps extension version is 4.1.415 (latest as of Dec 19th), and the build agent versions haven’t changed either. We did find from the last successful builds that the task was using version 6.17.3 of the octopus tools and the failing builds are now using version 6.17.4 - but I can’t find any way to control what version it uses, or how that changed, we can only see that version because it’s output in the task log. This appears to be something entirely controlled by Octopus.
See attached task log for full details:
