New Features

This December release of Octopus continues the support for Java that was introduced back in 3.17, with the ability to export certificates as Java KeyStores, as well as configuring certificates directly within existing Tomcat 7+, WildFly 10+ and Red Hat JBoss EAP 6+ application servers. This release also allows Maven repositories to be configured as external Octopus feeds, meaning Octopus can now consume Maven artifacts as part of a deployment.


  • Maven repositories as external feeds
  • Deployment of Java keystores and configuration of certificates in WildFly, JBoss EAP and Tomcat
  • Directories for task logs, artifacts and the package repository are now store as relative paths
