I’m trying to pass an array of string values to PreDeploy by putting the following into a variable through the OD interface
"string1", "string2", "string3"
i have also tried
@("string1", "string2", "string3")
In PreDeploy I try to access these as
$values = $OctopusParameters["Deployment.Values"]
The values are assigned, but it is no longer an array (i.e. $values.Count is not 3). Is there any way I can fix this?
The best bet is to set the values to:
Then in PowerShell:
$values = $OctopusParameters["Deployment.Value"].Split(",")
How to set Octopus.Tentacle.CurrentDeployment.TargetedRoles dynamically in predeploy.ps1?
It seems that is an array and won’t work with
Set-OctopusVariable -Name “Octopus.Tentacle.CurrentDeployment.TargetedRoles” -Value = “a,b,c”
Thanks for getting in touch! Even though the TargetedRoles is an array, this is not the issue.
TargetedRoles is not a variable that can be changed, it’s a system defined variable only available to Octopus.
