Is "Configuration as Code" in production status now?

Hi Folks,

There was a time when the official guidance about “Configuration as Code” was that it was not recommended for production setup.

I assume this feature is stable now, but we need to plan our version upgrade path on a self-hosted instance. Can you please confirm from which version of Octopus " Configuration as Code" is considered stable for production setup?

Many Thanks,

Hi Emil,

Thanks for getting in touch!

The last major updates to CaC were the addition of project variables in 2022.3 and built-in branch protection support in 2022.4.
There have been bug fixes applied more recently, though, so I would recommend upgrading to the latest available version (currently 2023.1).

Whilst the feature is stable, some items like Runbooks aren’t version controlled.

When testing this on your projects, I recommend cloning the project beforehand, as there is no way to revert the conversion to version control.


Thank you Paul,

your advice on cloning the projects is very useful indeed.

Best Regards,
