  action [:install, :configure]
  version '3.17.1'

Examples

Install version 3.2.24 of Octopus Deploy Tentacle

This will simply install the version of the Tentacle that is specified.

octopus_deploy_tentacle 'Tentacle' do
  action :install
  version '3.2.24'
  checksum '147f84241c912da1c8fceaa6bda6c9baf980a77e55e61537880238feb3b7000a'
end
Install version 3.2.24 of Octopus Deploy Tentacle and configure it

This will install the Tentacle and then configure the Tentacle on the machine to communicate with the Octopus Deploy server. It can also update firewall rules if enabled.

octopus_deploy_tentacle 'Tentacle' do
  action [:install, :configure]
  version '3.2.24'
  checksum '147f84241c912da1c8fceaa6bda6c9baf980a77e55e61537880238feb3b7000a'
  trusted_cert 'b5b7ea6537852fb5b7ea6537852f3428'
  # You can enable this resource to update firewall rules as well
  configure_firewall true
end
Register Listening Tentacle with the Octopus Deploy Server

This will check if the Tentacle is registered on the Octopus Deploy server and if it is not will register the Tentacle in the environment with the tags that are specified.

# You will first need to generate an api key
# In Octopus Deploy Server GUI click your Name -> Profile -> API keys
octopus_deploy_tentacle 'Tentacle' do
  action :register
  server 'https://octopus.example.com'
  api_key '12345678910'
  roles ['database']
  # You can set polling to true for a polling Tentacle setup
  # polling true
end

octopus_deploy_tools

Actions

  • :install: Install a version of Octopus Deploy tools (Default)

Attribute Parameters

  • :path: The Octopus Deploy tools directory (Defaults to C:\Octopus)
  • :source: Required. The url to download the tools from
  • :checksum: The SHA256 checksum of the Octopus Deploy tools zip file to verify download

Examples

Install version 4.5.1 of Octopus Deploy tools

This will simply install the version of the tools that is specified to the C:\fun folder

octopus_deploy_tools 'C:\fun' do
  action :install
  source 'https://download.octopusdeploy.com/octopus-tools/4.5.1/OctopusTools.4.5.1.zip'
  checksum 'd6794027d413764e7a892547fba9ed410bfa0a53425b178f628128d2b1aebb5f' # sha256 checksum
end

Assumptions

One major assumption of this cookbook is that you already have .net40 installed on your server. If you do not then you might need to do that before this cookbook. In addition, some of the resources in here require Chef version 12 in order to work.

Known Issues

This does not work with Octopus Deploy versions less than 3.2.3 because of a bug in exporting Tentacle certificates

Tentacle roles are only used the first time a Tentacle is registered with an Octopus Deploy Server. Updating Tentacle roles in cookbook will not update roles on Octopus Deploy Server.

Registering multiple Tentacles on the same machine is not supported.

Switching Tentacle modes between 'polling' & 'listening' is not currently supported.
