When do Octopus Deploy tentacles upgrade?

Hi I upgraded to the latest version of Octopus on Tuesday, I notice today our tentacles are still an old version. I thought they would auto upgrade themselves. Should that happen? When does it happen?

Note - I have not “locked current version”, if I go to the connectivity screen it tells me an upgrade is available.



Hi @andrew_w!

The tentacle upgrade process is manually initiated, which might be where the confusion lies here. If you navigate to Infrastructure -> Deployment Targets, you should be prompted to upgrade all of your tentacles. Simply click the “Upgrade all tentacles” button, and the upgrade will roll out to all of your installs!

I hope this helps, please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any further questions!

You can also upgrade tentacles per environment. Checkout our quick video here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXJI_7jFGqs

Great thanks for the help!

You are welcome, have a great rest of your day!
