Tentacle requires instance to export a cert

I am trying to create a cert without an instance being available yet. For example the following command:

.\\Tentacle.exe new-certificate -e C:\tentacle.txt

The reason is so that we can create one cert for the machine so even if we have to reconfigure we have the cert saved to use again. Currently the command errors if an instance is not created before this command but from my understanding of the documentation / the purpose of this command this should not be a requirement.

Hi Brent,

You are right, this looks like a bug

I’ve added it here and we’ll get to it soon. https://github.com/OctopusDeploy/Issues/issues/2143



Well that was an easy fix / fast. Awesome thanks for the quick turn around
