Thanks for getting in touch! It’s not possible to run a Docker container directly against the Octopus server, the best method we have for doing this would be to install a Tentacle instance on the Octopus server and deploy to that.
We have just released a new feature for Self-Hosted Octopus. Execution containers for workers. This feature is not currently available for Cloud hosted instances though, we need to do some more work for the cloud workers to be able to support this.
If you are running a Self-Hosted Octopus instance, you could possible benefit from the execution containers for workers.
Our developers are curious about your requirements here. If you could provide some details about your needs for running a docker container locally, we may be able to provide some other ideas or simply provide use cases for features we are developing in this area.
Let me know what you think here.
If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to let me know.
