I am attempting to get Octopus tentacles set up via Chef. I would like the version installed to track the latest version, but I can’t find a URL that doesn’t change. Is there a “latest” download link for the tentacle? Or is this ill-advised? It seems like within a major version there aren’t breaking changes.
Thanks for getting in touch!
Yes, you can use the following URL
octopus.com/downloads/latest/[OctopusTentacle|OctopusTentacle64] to get the latest MSI for Tentacle/Tentacle 64-bit.
Hope that helps!
Hi Henrik, is there an equivalent static URL for the main Octopus Deploy installer too?
I don’t suppose if anyone knows if there is a similar latest link for the Octopus tools?
That is, those that are normally found at: https://download.octopusdeploy.com/octopus-tools/126.96.36.199/OctopusTools.188.8.131.52.zip. I tried a variety of links in a similar style as the latest server and tentacle with no luck.
Yes there is, https://octopus.com/downloads/latest/CommandLineTools.
Thank you and best regards,
Perfect, thanks! This will make the Chef configuration much simpler.
