To implement blue-green deployments in Octopus using Environments, create two environments - one for blue, and one for green:
When deploying, you can then choose which environment to deploy to - either blue or green. The dashboard will show which release is in each environment.
Configuring your lifecycle will need to be done accordingly. Typically you would have both your blue and green environments in a shared "Production/Staging" phase.
