Configure retention policy by environment

Is it possible to configure retention policy by environment?

We deploy to Development environment continuously, and to Test and Production manually, so would be really nice to be able to configure different retention policy for different environments.


Thanks for the suggestion. Currently this isn’t possible; but it’s something we’re hoping to address in the future.


This feature would be really useful for us. We run continuous integration to our auto-test environment. This means over the course of a week we can generate gigabytes of release packages. At any given time we will only have the last few days worth of release packages retained on the Octopus server.

It would be really helpful if we could set retention policy by environment. That way retrieving an historical release package in production would be independent of the number of releases we have retained in our CI environment.

Hi William,

Thanks for getting in touch! We have a UserVoice suggestion for this exact feature.

Head on over, vote, comment and see if we can get some support behind it being a new feature.
