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.

Octopus integrates fully with VSTS

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.

Add work items and comments in your VSTS release which can be viewed inside the release summar of 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.

Syncretically take advantage of full VSTS release management but with the added benefit of everything there is to love about Octopus
