Needs for viewing all ongoing releases on overview page

Hello Octopus Deploy

We work with delta releases in a big BI system. This means we have several ongoing releases in parallel, usually there are 10-20 ongoing small release packages deployed individually.

Our hope with Octopus Deploy has been to view all ongoing releases on the Project Overview page. But it looks like releases are removed after some time, even if they are not done or removed intentionally. This is quite a big issue for us. The goals we have had with Octopus Deploy includes visualizing all ongoing releases on the overview page.

As example, in screenshot the 0.0.35 release is gone from overview, though we can still see it exists in the Releases-page.

What could be done for getting all ongoing releases to stay visible on overview page?


Hi Rasmus,

Thanks for getting in touch! I’m sorry about the confusing behavior with releases being displayed in your project’s overview page. This is in fact by design, and how Octopus determines which releases to display is by a ranking system in the database. The factors are EnvironmentId, Project and Tenant which determines its ‘rank’. Only those releases with Rank = 1 get displayed.

While there’s currently no way to modify this behavior, we think there is some room for improvement going forward. We’re currently working on an overhaul of our entire UI for the upcoming 4.0 release, so I’ve added a comment to the following GitHub issue to have this looked at during the UI changes.

I’m sorry it’s not better news! Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any further questions.

Kind regards,


Aha ok… We will be looking forward to 4.0 then :slight_smile:

Thanks & regards!
