Octopus Deploy Documentation

Configure your environments

Last updated

Environments are how you organize your deployment targets (whether on-premises servers or cloud services) into groups that represent the different stages of your deployment pipeline, for instance, development, test, and production.

Organizing your deployment targets into environments lets you define your deployment processes (no matter how many deployment targets or steps are involved) and have Octopus deploy the right versions of your software to the right environments at the right time.

You can manage your environments by navigating to Infrastructure ➜ Environments in the Octopus Web Portal:

The environments area of Octopus Deploy

Add new environments

  1. Navigate to Infrastructure ➜ Environments and click ADD ENVIRONMENT.
  2. Give your new environment a meaningful name and click SAVE.

You can add as many environments as you need, and you can reuse your environments with different projects so there's no need to create environments per project.

Next, learn how to connect your deployment targets to Octopus or you can return to the getting started guides.
