Using the AWS tools bundled with Octopus is not recommended warning

I am using Octopus Cloud. I continue to get below warning even after migrating from Octopus worker to an execution container with custom docker image where I have my own version of AWS CLI. Can this warning be removed or is there a way I can suppress/ignore this warning in deployment logs.

Hi @vaibhavn,

Thanks for getting in touch! Sorry to see you’re hitting this issue. Fortunately this is a known bug that I’ll link to below. The fix for it will be shipped in the upcoming release v2021.2.7454.

The above bug report also lists a couple potential workarounds.

You can remove the warning by opening the process step and de-selecting ‘Run inside a container’, then swapping the setting for the tooling to use those on a worker, then saving the project. After, you would then re-select ‘Run inside a container’ and configure the container as appropriate.
Alternatively, you can add the OctopusUseBundledTooling = ‘False’ flag via API.

I hope this helps, and please let us know if you have any questions or concerns going forward!

Best regards,
