Unable to set deployment timeout on TeamCity deploy release step

I have a deployment that occasionally takes a while due to data initialization. I attempted to add deploymenttimeout as an additional parameter, but I keep getting the following error. I’m not sure if it’s an issue in octo.exe, or if it is due to --progress being a flag, so it’s reading deploymenttimeout as a value to that parameter. What is the correct way to increase the deployment timeout via the TeamCity step?

Hi Erick,

Sorry for the delay here!

Hmm the command looks ok. Could you send us the full TC build log along with a screenshot of your “Octopus Deploy: Deploy Release” TC step where I can see all the fields?
