I’m trying to automate creation of projects in Octopus Deploy, using the .NET client. When trying to create a deployment action, based on one of our templates, the referenced packages are not copied when the action is created. I have not been able to find a way to work-around this.
The deployment process is for deploying to AKS using Helm. The referenced packages are for the helm chart and the application.
It appears that the only solution we have at the moment is to manually create the deployment process, effectively killing our entire efforts to automate this.
It appears this is an already known bug (https://github.com/OctopusDeploy/Issues/issues/5649). There is no follow up information however, and the bug is marked as “tiny”, which doesn’t give me hope that it will ever be addressed.
I posted to the slack (advice) channel, but so far there is no reply.
Is there a workaround to this bug? Or is there another way we can automate the creation of projects in Octopus Deploy? Or is it possible to just fix this “tiny” bug?
