Tenanted deployments

Tenanted deployments are a common strategy to deploy software to many production instances, targets, or customers.

Tenanted deployments are most useful for:

About managing tenants

Tenanted deployment strategies are complex at scale. Customers and targets may have unique needs, like branding or security measures. These needs introduce risk and process duplication, and slow deployment rates.

Octopus's built-in Tenants feature solves these problems and more. Octopus helps keep your tenanted deployment processes manageable, fast, and reliable.

UI Portal Project, Common and Staging Variables

Tenants in Octopus are the key to unlocking your tenanted deployment strategy for your applications

Manage tenant differences with variables

UI Portal Project, Common and Staging Variables

Octopus’s Variables feature lets you reuse deployment processes for some or all tenants and customize workflows to meet their unique needs. Save time, prevent process duplication, and lower the risk of human error.

Use variables at different levels to:

  • Deploy existing software to new tenants without process configuration changes
  • Define items needed when spinning up a new tenant
  • Prevent deployments with missing or incorrect values
  • Protect sensitive information
UI Portal Tenant Tags Overview

Use tenant tags to organize and customize your tenants

UI Portal Tenant Tags Overview

Tenant tags are a versatile and powerful way to simplify, organize, and scale tenanted deployments.

Tenants tags help you:

  • Logically group tenants by location, timezone, feature set, or customer
  • Add deployment steps that should run for a specific group of tenants based on purchased features or location
  • Create release rings for alpha, beta, and stable customers

A modern view of multi-tenancy

Reduce the complexity of tenanted deployments. Define your process once and scale across your customers.


Download our white paper to learn about the new approach to multi-tenancy, and how to choose an approach that works for you.

We'll never share your email or spam you.

Using tenants lets our team much more easily target our deployments. Using variables and tenant tags gives us the flexibility to configure those deployments in a way that works for us, and also gives us a great overview of our deployments at a glance.
