No information about configuration drift in release page

we already updated Octopus Server to 2021.3. Our developers report a unexpected behavior. When project variables were changed or Variable Set - warn about configuration drift is not appear for old releases. I preview all changelogs form previous version to latest and It looks like is related with this issue: Project variables can be overridden and deployed without warning that variables have been changed · Issue #6743 · OctopusDeploy/Issues · GitHub

This impacts users expectations. As a user I should be well informed - for example when someone from my team change configuration and understood whats going on. Is there any chance to restore this information ?

Best regards,

Hi Piotr,

Thanks for reaching out, and for the great question.

You’re correct that the warning was removed as part of the Issue linked above, and I apologize if this has caused unexpected headaches with your deployment processes. I’ll funnel your feedback through to the product team who made this change as a data point, and to see if any other workarounds are in the pipeline to help alleviate this situation, and make this information more visible.

I’ll circle back around with you when I have any updates on this.

Hi @Justin_Walsh,
thanks for your support and understanding of the situation.

I wonder if you have any new news for me. Maybe this warning will not come back, but another better approach will be implemented, that will be used to indicate configuration drift in release page.

Have nice weekend!

Hi @Piotr,

Sadly I don’t have any updates on this yet, but I’ll let you know when I do!

Be in touch ASAP
