Effects of Changing Project Lifecycle

I want to add a phase/environment to my Octopus project, but can’t use the lifecycle currently attached. I’m going to create a new, identical, lifecycle with just the new phase/env. When I attach it to the project, will that simply add a new environment with no deploys and keep the record of the one’s already done with the former lifecycle, or reset all the environments?

Hi @ggg.tasonis,

Thanks for reaching out to Octopus Support and for your question about changing your project’s default Lifecycle.

I wasn’t sure how changing the default Lifecycle would impact the project Overview screen, so I did some testing. It looks like in this scenario where your new Lifecycle is just adding a new environment, you’ll continue to see your previously deployed environments like in your first example.



Please let me know if this helps or if you have any other questions.
