Create Release with Docker image in AWS ECR

I’m working on automating the build, push and deploy of services on AWS ECS by storing images on AWS ECR.

The build server (TeamCity) performs 4 steps

  1. install basic tools (dotnet CLI extensions for ECS)
  2. execute a cake script that builds and tests the code
  3. build the image container and pushes it into ECR (using dotnet ecs push-image command)
  4. creates a release on Octopus Deploy using the TeamCity integration

All works nice in steps 1, 2 and 3. The project on OD is set up following the blog post: (I changed the package to be called “package” instead of “web”)

If I create the release manually, it works as intended. Adding step number 4 would be a nice touch.

This is the command being executed by TeamCity: octo.exe create-release --server REDACTED --apikey REDACTED --project REDACTED WITH SPACES --enableservicemessages --version 1.0.28 --package package:28


Thanks for getting in touch. I saw that one of the team have responded your question over in the blog comments, so just adding this here as a redirect in case others come across it.
