JSON Formatted Output

Last updated

Introduced in Octo.exe version 4.30.0, most commands support printing the result in JSON format.

Dump Deployment, Export and Import do not support JSON output.

To access JSON formatted output, use the --outputformat=json parameter.

octo list-projects --server http://your-octopus-server/ --apiKey API-ABCDEF123456 --outputformat=json

This command will output the list of projects in parsable JSON format:

    "Id": "Projects-81",
    "Name": "Phoenix"
    "Id": "Projects-61",
    "Name": "OctoFX"

You can also work with the JSON output in Powershell

$json = (./octo list-releases --server http://your-octopus-server/ --apikey API-ABCDEF123456 --project=OctoLifecycle --outputformat=json) | ConvertFrom-Json
$json | select -expand Releases | where {[datetime]$_.Assembled -gt ((Get-Date).AddMonths(-1))} 

This script will write out a list of releases for the last month:
