Octopus Deploy Channel maven Version Rule failing

Hi Team,

Getting error when using Channel based rule (maven feeds)
Channel Rule -Rule-Version-2 is [1.2,1.3) in the Project GIUI-STATIC-BLOB-SNAPSHOT. It has two process in which GIUIStatic-Azure-Blob-CIT is restricted to use Rule-Version-2 channel rule.

My version in using create Release is 1.2.0-giuistatic-SNAPSHOT which I think falls in rule. Why it is failing with below error? Please advise as I’m blocked.
Command used-

/opt/Programs/OctoPack/Octo create-release --project GIUI-STATIC-BLOB-SNAPSHOT --version 1.2.0-giuistatic-SNAPSHOT --package giuistatic:1.2.0-SNAPSHOT --server http://od.landggi.com --apiKey ${OD_KEY} --deployto=CIT --progress --channel=Rule-Version-2

Hi Siddharth,

Thanks for getting in touch! I may have an idea of what is going on here. You noted your version rules above as [1.2,1.3). However, you are also using a pre-release tag in your package. A package with a pre-release tag is regarded as being an earlier version, so MyPackage.1.2.0-pre-release is technically an earlier version than the [1.2] version rule will recognise.

You will either need to adjust your version rule, or consider not using the pre-release tag in your package version. If the -giuistatic-SNAPSHOT pre-release tag is not relevant to the channel version rule and just a string for identification, you might consider using the metadata tag + on your package instead of -.

For example:


#9 in the SemVer documentation covers per-release tags in your versioning, and #10 below it covers metadata tags.

Does this help?

Let me know if you have any further thoughts or questions on this.

Best regards,

Hi @siddharth.grd,

Can you please change this parameter --package giuistatic:1.2.0-SNAPSHOT to --package *:giuistatic:1.2.0-SNAPSHOT. And if that doesn’t work try with --package GIUIStatic-Azure-Blob-CIT :1.2.0-SNAPSHOT

Please let me know how this goes before our scheduled call.
