Is there a URL that always points to the newest version of the tentacle installer?

I am attempting to get Octopus tentacles set up via Chef. I would like the version installed to track the latest version, but I can’t find a URL that doesn’t change. Is there a “latest” download link for the tentacle? Or is this ill-advised? It seems like within a major version there aren’t breaking changes.

Thanks,
Erick

Hi Erickt,

Thanks for getting in touch!

Yes, you can use the following URL octopus.com/downloads/latest/[OctopusTentacle|OctopusTentacle64] to get the latest MSI for Tentacle/Tentacle 64-bit.

Hope that helps!

Cheers,
Henrik

Hi Henrik, is there an equivalent static URL for the main Octopus Deploy installer too?

With a bit of trial and error; the main server installer link seems to be:
https://octopus.com/downloads/latest/OctopusServer
https://octopus.com/downloads/latest/OctopusServer64

Perfect, thanks!

I don’t suppose if anyone knows if there is a similar latest link for the Octopus tools?

That is, those that are normally found at: https://download.octopusdeploy.com/octopus-tools/3.0.18.71/OctopusTools.3.0.18.71.zip. I tried a variety of links in a similar style as the latest server and tentacle with no luck.

Thanks!
Erick

Hi Erickt,

Yes there is, https://octopus.com/downloads/latest/CommandLineTools.

Thank you and best regards,
Henrik

Perfect, thanks! This will make the Chef configuration much simpler.
