Copying Projects to different Octopus instances

We have very strict separation between our internal (dev / SysTest) and external (UAT / Prod) environments and therefore plan to implement separate instances of Octopus in each. As part of our system testing we will be testing the Octopus deployment so need to be able to promote the Octopus project from one environment to the other once testing has been completed.

Please advise how we might be able to do this.

Hi Steve,

You can take a backup of the Octopus database on one server and import it to another, but this unfortunately means that you’d be wiping away any changes you’ve made on the UAT/Prod Octopus.

For Octopus 2.0 we’ll introduce a feature to allow steps and variables to be exported and imported without overwriting the rest of the project.
