Is there a way to push the nuget packages to Octopus tentacles without initiating the application deployment?

I would like to shorten the deployment time by removing the time it takes to transfer files (nuget packages) to Octopus tentacles during the deployment. I would like to download the packages to the tentacles one-day prior to the deployment. Is there any way to do this? I know that forcing a reinstallation of a package will perform the installation if the package is already on the tentacle. I just need the one step to get the packages on the tenacles.

Hi Martin,

Good question! I’ve written a how-to guide here:

Hope this helps!



Perfect! I’ll give it a try.
