Is there a URL that always points to the newest version of the tentacle installer?

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.


Hi Erickt,

Thanks for getting in touch!

Yes, you can use the following URL[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?

With a bit of trial and error; the main server installer link seems to be:

Perfect, thanks!

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: I tried a variety of links in a similar style as the latest server and tentacle with no luck.


Hi Erickt,

Yes there is,

Thank you and best regards,

Perfect, thanks! This will make the Chef configuration much simpler.
