  1. Navigate to the Projects tab.
  2. Select ADD PROJECT.
  3. Name the project, for instance, Hello world, and click SAVE.
  4. Click DEFINE YOUR DEPLOYMENT PROCESS, and click ADD STEP.
  5. Choose the type of step you'd like to add to filter the available steps: Script.
  6. Click the Run a Script tile.
  7. In the process editor, give the step a name, for instance, Run Hello world script.
  8. In the execution location section, click Run on the Octopus Server.
  9. In the script section, paste the following PowerShell script into the Inline Source Code editor:
Write-Host "Hello, World!"

  1. Click SAVE.

You now have a simple hello world deployment process.
