How it the Machine Category Used? Can I create new categories?

The current categories (Web, Application, Database) don’t cover all of the tiers of my system. Is this just for informational purposes or does this affect how things are deployed? Can I create new categories?

Hi Pete,

Thanks for asking. That field has absolutely no bearing on how Octopus operates. It used to affect a diagram that the old Environments page showed, but that has disappeared in the latest version in favour of the new page layout. In a future release I will probably drop the ‘Category’ attribute entirely - the description field is a much better place to put that kind of information.
