Substitute Variables in Files on local machine


On build server we’re relying on Substitute Variables in Files feature as a deployment process step to preprocess the app.config files for our app.

We need a similar step on a developer machine where we want to obtain the app.config tailored for a particular environment.
Does Octopus have any client tools to support this scenario? Is not necessarily to download the variable values from server we could define them locally in separate settings file
There are alternative but since we’re using Octopus I want first check it if it helps in this direction first

Thank you


Thanks for getting in touch! Unfortunately Octopus doesn’t have any tool that does what you are looking for.

That being said, if you want you can have a look at customising Calamari which is a tool Octopus uses to perform variable substitution.

Please, let me know if this doesn’t solve your problem.
