Creating Releases from External Feeds


We have an Artifactory-hosted Nuget feed to which I am pushing Octopacks from our Jenkins build server.

It is not clear to me if I am still supposed to use octo push prior to octo create-release. The external feed is set up, I can search for my packages just fine within Octo. However, when JUST using create-release, I get the following error

  "Looking up the package location from the built-in package repositor
"  ""Fatal"    "The step failed: Activity failed with error 'The package REDACTED
             could not be located in the built-in repository.'."
             SuccessWithWarning: REDACTED
"    ""Error"    "The package REDACTED could not be located in the built-in repository

And in my head, of course it’s not in the built-in repo.

My create-release command looks like

octo.exe create-release --defaultpackageversion=$version --channel $channel --project $project --deployto $environment --server REDACTED --apiKey REDACTED --progress

Thanks for any guidance!

Ah, I figured it out – my project just needed to specify the external feed in the deploy step.
