I’ve run across a few things that I think would be helpful when managing releases.
- For a given project, have the ability the see a list of all releases that have been created. Maybe this could be the default tab on the project home page instead of Recent Deployments? Clicking on a release would take you to the details screen for this release. This came about since it wasn’t overly clear how to perform a new deployment into a different environment. I have to click my “Development” release box to take me to the page where I can click the Deploy button.
- It would also be nice to have friendly formatted URLs to take us directly to a release page, so I could tell users to go to http://my-octopus-portal/project name/releases/release name, instead of http://my-octopus-portal/Releases/Show/11?deploymentId=23
- It would be nice if the release screen instead got a little de-cluttered. Maybe put Packages and Variables in accordions or tabs? Just something to hide the stuff that doesn’t really get looked at, but adds to visual clutter. I would also think it would be nice to see the Release Notes at the top, and then see the Deployments after that.
Thanks for an awesome product Paul!
