Optional Phases Can't be skipped in UI

Octopus Version 3.13.0

Lifecycle created that goes from Test -> Preprod (Optional) -> Production
When attempting a UI deploy to Production where Test has been deployed to, it doesn’t allow skipping Preprod.

If the lifecycle has the first environment/phase as optional it also doesn’t work.

In short, the Optional process doesn’t work.

Hi there

Thanks for getting in touch!

I’ve dug into the issue, and I’ve found that there’s a bug around optional lifecycles being mandatory, but only when used with tenants. I’ve logged an issue, and we should have a fix out for it within the next few days.

Hope that helps!


Saw this thread was open => go ahead and close this thread. It is solved! Thanks for the quick turn around. It resolved having to create horrible hacks in our channels and lifecycles for releases.

*edit: Just figured out I had permission to close the thread :slight_smile:
