Output variables lost after manual intervention

When including a manual intervention step, output variables created in subsequent steps are lost in a “parent” project.

Basic repro setup is a “parent” project (in my case:“GTaiji-Test”) with a Deploy Release “child” step (“Notifications” which deploys project “Notification Approval”). I’ve attached the following raw logs:

  • Log 1: “Notifications” release 0.0.1 deployed with no manual intervention
  • Log 2: “GTaiji-Test” release 0.0.1 using “Notifications” 0.0.1 in a Deploy Release step
  • Log 3: “Notifications” release 0.0.2 deployed with a manual intervention
  • Log 4: “GTaiji-Test” release 0.0.2 using “Notifications” 0.0.2 in a Deploy Release step

In Log 2 you can observe the existence of output variables from steps within “Notifications” created using powershell command Set-OctopusVariable. This is as expected per the Deploy Release documentation.

In Log 4 the same output variables are no longer available. The only difference between the two deployments is the inclusion of a manual intervention prior to Set-OctopusVariable being called within “Notifications”.


Hi Garrett,
