Orchestrating deploy steps

I am integrating Octopus with my build server, and would like my build server to do some work between Octopus steps. Is this possible using octo.exe? Can I use a “manual” step to pause the deploy, then resume it once my build server is done with its work?


Hi Nick,

Thanks for reaching out. Though it is possible to do this with a manual step, I wouldn’t recommend you to do it that way.

Instead of faking a “wait” with a manual intervention, i’d recommend you to create an executable that triggers the process on your build server and waits until its done. This way you’ll only have to execute this program from Octopus, and Octopus will only wait until it is done and automatically continue with the rest of the steps.
