Create a release with specific version

Last updated

This script demonstrates how to programmatically create a release with a specified version number.

Usage

Provide values for the following:

  • Octopus URL
  • Octopus API Key
  • Name of the space to use
  • Name of the project
  • Name of the channel
  • Version number of the release to create
