External Button from my app to start a deployment

usability
#1

Is it possible to create an external button in an application of ours to start a deployment? We are curious about this as it would allow others to start a deployment without us allowing them on the Octopus server itself. So far, the only way I can think of would be to create an app to open Octo.exe and feed it commands (create-release, deploy-release).

Thanks for the help!

Hi DG,

Thanks for getting in touch. One way would be to use Octo.exe in that manner. However, another option would be to make use of our Octopus.Client library within your application, which allows you to directly interact with the API without needing to initialise an external .exe.

You can make use of our sample repository to help you get started too.

I hope this helps, please let me know if there is anything else I can do.

Best regards,
Paul
