JSON formatted output

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 outputs 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 writes out a list of releases for the last month:
