How do I add parameters to a community step template?

If you are using a community step template and find that it is missing a parameter for the underlying tool being used, you can update the step template to add the parameter.

Make a copy and update

Open the step template in your Octopus server’s library and click the green Save As Copy button.

Give your copy of the step template a name.


This will create a copy of the step template that is local to your server. You can add any additional parameters and make any adjustments to the script that you need.

Submit a change to the step template

If you think that the changes you’ve made will benefit the larger Octopus community, consider contributing your change back to the library.
