The enhancement

What is the problem this solves or benefit it gives

Scenario 1: User logs on to Octopus and finds Tenant X which is tied to a few different projects but can't figure out which Tenant is the right one for the deployment.

Scenario 2: Octopus Administrator sees a failed deployment and isn't sure of the person to get in touch with.

Proposed solution

Add a notes or description section for each tenant under the Settings area. This will allow for detailed notes such as internal stakeholders, clients details, rollback details, links to policies.

For Scenario 1, this would help teams identify what tenant is to be used for what scenario.
For Scenario 2, Administrator looks at failed deployment which happens to be a tenanted deployment and finds contact details for the correct person.


Description would be shown on the left side bar:

Description could also be shown on the tenant card, similar to projects:


External documentation could be used here instead.

Decision was made to not show on the Tenant card, as that space is used by Tenant Tags.
