Sequential rollout?

It seems like Octopus deploys to all machines at the same time. In a web environment, that tends to be unfavorable because it basically takes down an entire environment at once. With our current deployment script, we deploy to one box at a time so we’re only decommissioning one box at a time. Can this currently be accomplished using Octopus?


Hi Tim,

You can currently set a special variable called “OctopusMaxParallelism” to 1 to deploy a single package at a time. We’ll be improving this in Octopus 2.0 as well.


Great, thanks for the response!
