Custom naming of Azure deployments

When using the Deploy an Azure Resource Group step, the name of the Azure deployment seems to be automatically generated by Octopus. For example, if the step is called Create Function App, Octopus will create a deployment called something like create-function-app-0a12b9f0a9d74cffaf4dc5cde671af9e

Is there a way that I am missing to give our deployments a custom name, as it would make them much easier to manage within Azure (either via CLI or the Portal) if they had a meaningful name.


Hi David,
Thanks for reaching out! In this case you can set a new Project Variable named Octopus.Action.Azure.ResourceGroupDeploymentName with the value that you want to call this resource group deployment. Please feel free to check out or documentation on System Variables for more information.

I look forward to hearing from you if you have any questions.

Kind Regards,

Many thanks Lawrence, that was exactly what I was looking for.
