Octopus deployments in the VSTS dashboard
Connect your TFS/VSTS dashboard to Octopus, and use our dashboard widget to display the status of your Octopus deployments all from the comfort of your project dashboard.
Push packages to Octopus Deploy
Complete your build, test and package workflow by using the Push Packages to Octopus task. There is the option to select which Octopus instance to push the package to, replace packages and add additional arguments.
Create releases, deploy and promote continuously
All the tasks you need to perform a deployment in Octopus are available in VSTS. Each task provides a number of options including which instance to deploy to and options for channels and tenanted deployments.
Work items and commits in release notes
Create transparency and traceability by adding work items and comments when creating a release in VSTS. The work items and comments can be viewed in the release summary in your Octopus instance.
Works with Build & Release Management
The Octopus tasks can be called either directly from Team Build, or from Release Management within VSTS. This makes it possible to use Release Management for high-level release approvals, but get all the benefits of Octopus (multi-tenant deployments, on-premises deployments, etc.) at deployment time.
