How to check if the application has risen?

Can I check if my application has risen through Octopus Deploy for example create new step or I can create a health check for my application, but now I need to go to the server or use the url and see if everything is OK. Can it be automated?

Hi, Thanks for getting in touch.

Yes. If the application you’re deploying is web-based, you could incorporate a script step into your deployment process to make a request to a given URL and check the status code of the response. There is an existing HTTP - Test URL community step template available that you could use (in PowerShell). There is also a BASH version of the template if you wish.

Here’s also some documentation if you wish to learn more about community step templates.

Hope that helps

Thank you!
