Copying to new Octopus Instance


Is it possible to copy the following to a new Octopus Deploy without re-installing the whole Octopus database?

  • Octopus Projects (excluding Releases)
  • Script Modules
  • Step templates
  • Variable Sets

The reason I ask is because I’m reviewing how I can develop new projects on a Test Octopus before proceeding to transfer my changes to a Live Octopus.


Hi Binh,

Thanks for getting in touch! It looks like what you are after is the Import/Export manager available inside the Octopus manager. We have some good documentation on how this can be done from inside the manager that I will link below.

You will be able to select you you want to be imported by simply deleting folders that are exported before you import them.

Please let me know if that helps.
