Migrator partial-export command is not exporting LibraryVariableSets for releases #5100

Imagine you are exporting a single project using the Octopus.Migrator.exe partial-export --project="MyProject" command. The exported files contain any Library Variable Sets currently used by the Project, but not any Library Variable Sets which were used by the Project for some Releases, and subsequently removed from the Project.

When you try to import this project using Octopus.Migrator.exe import ... the process fails because the Library Variable Set referred to by an older Release was not exported.

What I expected to happen

Any Library Variable Sets required to successfully import the Project and any included Releases should be exported - resulting in a successful import.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a Library Variable Set and a Project
  2. Create a Release of that Project
  3. Remove the Library Variable Set from the Project
  4. Create another Release of that Project
  5. Export the Project
  6. Try to import the Project and it will fail with the error message like this: Error importing LibraryVariableSet 'MyLibraryVariableSet' (LibraryVariableSets-22): Missing dependency variableset-LibraryVariableSets-22

Affected versions

Octopus Server: 3.0 until fixed


Re-connect the Library Variable Set to the Project before exporting - the result:

  1. The Library Variable Set will be exported correctly because it is used by the Project directly
  2. Any releases you create will use that Variable Set even though it isn't required for successful deployments.

Release Note: migrator.exe now correctly exports library variable sets used by a project and any of its releases, where beforehand any library variable sets removed from the project would not be exported subsequently causing the import to fail
