I’ve set up Octopus Deploy over the last couple of weeks, it’s working really well and has really helped speed up deployments.
We’re now in the process of set up our environments, we use variable sets for different servers to keep it manageable.
I have a few suggestions that could make it a lot easier:
- when creating a variable set, have the option (dropdown?) to copy from another set
- have a copy/duplicate button/context menu option on a variable set to copy to a new one
- have a export/import button/context menu option on a variable set. E.g.: export as XML, so you can easily edit and then import the XML as a new variable set
- have a bulk way of setting scopes in the scope column in a set. E.g.: highlight/checkbox a selection, click scope (which could then say “Press enter to edit selected scopes” instead of “Press enter to edit scope”) and updates all scopes
Hope those suggestions make sense, any one of those would greatly help
