How to use rolling deployment with multiple roles

I would like to set up my rolling deploying child step to belong to a specific role.

Rolling deploying size1:
–deregister from ELB
–deploy website A [rolea]
–deploy website B [roleb]
–deploy website C [rolec]
–register to ELB

note: vars will apply per role i.e. hostname: rolea.environment.dns-suffix

Is this posible?

Hi Julian,

Thanks for getting in touch! Unfortunately there is currently no option in Octopus to run your child steps on roles that differ from the parent step.

I believe the best option here would be to check out our UserVoice suggestions page. UserVoice lets you create suggestions, vote, and comment on other suggestions. If a suggestion gets enough community interest we can start looking into adding it into Octopus. I did find a suggestion relevant to your question here which could use some love. Feel free to vote and leave a comment with your thoughts.

Let me know if you have any further questions here.

Best regards,
