Machine variable for default installation root


I’m trying to configure a custom installation directory for a package - it’s being deployed to a number of Tenacles, which have various values for their “default installation directory” (e.g. “C:\Octopus\Applications”, “D:\Octopus\Applications”, etc).

I want my installation to be inside a subfolder of this location, but I can’t seem to find a pre-defined System Variable that I can use in the “Custom Installation Directory” of my “deploy package” step so that it maps to the correct “C:\Octopus” or “D:\Octopus” location on each Tentacle.

What I’d really like to be able to specify is something like:

Custom Installation Directory: "#{Octopus.Machine.DefaultInstallationRoot}\#{Octopus.Environment.Name }\MySubfolder"

The only alternative I can come up with is to create my own variable (e.g. in a global variable set) which is scoped to provide the correct value for individual Tentacles, but that’s going to add a bit of maintenance overhead.

Am I missing something?



Ah, never mind - found it…
