Is it possible to update the packages in a release outside UI

During our testing process we will re-create our RC pre-release packages when defects are found.

After committing, Jenkins builds and pushes these to Octopus and I then manually edit the release to include the new versions.

Is it possible to use octo.exe or similar to update the packages? I have tried using --ignoreexisting with create-release but, as expected, it just leaves the release once it is created.


Thanks for reaching out! As you discovered, there’s no way to do this using Octo.exe. The only way would be through the API.

The best way to learn how to do it is to setup Fiddler/WireShark, then edit the release through the UI and see the API calls that are being made.

Let me know how that goes.

i went ahead and created a Uservoice for this feature:

Try to drop by and give it some votes if you’d like to see this implemented eventually :slight_smile:
