400 Bad request error while creating release using VSTS

Hi Team,

We have implemented create release step using VSTS to deploy through octopus but when the build is triggered we are getting 400 Bad request error.

I am also experiencing this same issue. Just started in the past hour after multiple successes throughout the day.

The following error is showing up inside octopus in the diagnostic logs:

The I/O operation has been aborted because of either a thread exit or an application request

It is successfully pushing packages to octopus but failing on the create release step

Hi @ramya_surendranath, thanks for reaching out.

Can you please try disabling the Comments and WorkItems and see if that allows the release to be created.

Also can you please attach the Octopus server logs, which can be found with the documentation at https://octopus.com/docs/support/log-files. These logs may have more details that resulted in the bad request.

Now we are getting octo.exe error

Just seen this after creating another post. Same deal for us since this morning i notice extension was last updated midnight last night ?


We have had a few reports of this issue, and created a GitHub issue at https://github.com/OctopusDeploy/OctoTFS/issues/107 to track the progress. We’ll update the issue when we find the underlying cause, so keep an eye on that.

Others have mentioned that disabling changeset and work items has worked for them, so that might be a valid workaround for now.

If you have any other information, please feel free to add a comment to the GitHub issue, as this will be the central location where we track the progress.
