How is PowerShell and its modules updated in Octopus?

If I wanted to use the most up-to-date version of PowerShell or the most up-to-date version of the AzureRM.ApiManagement module within Octopus, how could I do this in Octopus? Does Octopus periodically update to the latest version? Is there a way for me, as a user, to update to the latest version or is this only updated on the Octopus platform on a periodic basis?

Hi Sam,

Thanks for reaching out!

Powershell Version
Octopus will always be default use the latest one available in the VM that’s running the steps, whether that is the Octopus Server or a Tentacle.

Azure Modules
We bundle some versions with Octopus/Calamari, but if you want to be super up to date and not wait for our releases, you can download the module yourself and tell Octopus to grab them from a specific path. More info about this in the link below.

Hope that helps!
