Unable to Create Custom Script

Hello, since upgrading to 2018 I have been experiencing problems creating Custom Step Templates. Each time try to create a Custom Step Template I get the error:

There was a problem with your request
Please provide the script body to run.

I would normally just add some script to the body and save. However, I’m importing projects and therefore I really don’t want to have to insert some text to create the Custom Step Template.

I read that this was a bug in previous versions but was fixed with version 3.2.9


Also, this wasn’t happening before the current version 2018.3.1

Can someone please let me know if there is a fix for this?



Hi Carlton,

Thanks for getting in touch,

I’m sorry to hear you are experiencing inconvinience from this behavior,

I might be misunderstanding your concern, though it sounds like your importing Projects and are required to setup the pre-requisite Step Templates in order for the import to be succesful.

I’ve had a look at this behavior using a 3.x version and I’m still prevented from saving the template without specifying some text or blank characters in the script body before I can save it.

Can I ask which version of Octopus you were using at the time where this wasn’t a pre-requisite on the save of the Custom Step Template?

I look forward to hearing back from you :slight_smile:

Kind Regards,


Hi Reece,

Thanks for reaching out. I was using the version one below 2018.3 … not sure of the exact version number
