Can we use Azure Blob as Custom Package Feed location

(Satish Y) #1

Hi Team,

Our Octopus server is in on-premises network and our applications are in Azure VMs.

We are using Octopus server built in package feed to get the build package(.zip) to create the release, in this process some times we are facing some network issues between Octopus server and Azure network due to this deployments are failing. We want push the build package from Bamboo to Azure Blob then we want to take that .zip package from Azure blob to create release and substitute the variables through Octopus and deploy to Azure VMs.

Please let us know if it is possible or is there any other way to do this exact workflow.



Hi @satishy,

Thanks for getting in touch!

Unfortunately while you can connect an Azure BLOB via SMB to your Octopus Server, BLOB storage doesn’t allow for folder structures so can’t be used as a NuGet feed for Octopus.

As an alternative you should be able to use Azure Files, either as a HTTPS share or as an SMB share which can then be added to Octopus as a NuGet feed.

Another alternative which may be viable would be to run your Octopus instance on a VM in Azure, however I’m not sure of your security policies around making this a viable option.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can assist with,
