Error pushing package to Octopus Deploy

I’m getting the above error when pushing a package to Octopus Deploy from our build pipeline. I’m doing this from a build script using the following octo push command.

octo push --package=mypackage.nupkg --overwrite-mode=OverwriteExisting --server= --pass=mypassword --debug --LogLevel=debug

Any ideas what’s causing the error and how to fix it?

Hi @dominic.burford

From what it looks like here, you’re attempting to log in to the Octopus server using a username and password, but your instance isn’t configured to accept those.

Is this pipeline pushing to an Octopus Cloud instance? If so, your authentication is via OctopusID, rather than a username and password account on the Octopus instance itself.

As a general rule, we recommend using an API key here, rather than username/password authentication.

I hope this helps, and please don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any further questions.

That’s fixed my problem. Many thanks for your help. This can be closed now.
