Editing Octopus variable does not show current value

I copied and pasted some JSON into a new variable using Open Editor

Saved the variable.

If i then try to edit it with Open Editor again, and the old value is not populated in the editor window.

However in the variable list view, i can see the value i pasted in before.

It just doesn’t show when i use Open Editor.

Hi Nick,

Thanks for getting in touch,

I’m sorry to hear you are experiencing this issue, I understand this type of behavior can be frustrating.

I’ve attempted to replicate this issue, unfortunately, without success.

There was an existing issue for this that was resolved in 2018.2.2 which I’ve linked below;

If you are running a version older than this, please attempt to upgrade to at least this version, at your earliest convenience.

If you are running a version of Octopus that is later than this already, can you please let me know your version?

I look forward to hearing back from you :slight_smile:

Kind Regards,


Hi Reece,

We are running 2018.2.1

I’ll speak to the admin responsible about upgrading.

Thanks in advance !


Hi Nick,

Thanks for getting back to me,

Not a problem, I appreciate you letting me know your current version.

If you’re still encountering issues with this post-upgrade, please let me know :slight_smile:

Have a great day!

Kind Regards,
