Triggering deployments from TeamCity
The Octopus TeamCity plugin comes with these custom build runners:
Octopus Deploy: Push Packages (Octopus 3.3 and TeamCity plugin 3.3.1 or newer) Push packages to the Octopus Deploy built-in repository, optionally using the TeamCity zip feature to create packages on-the-fly.
Octopus Deploy: Create Release Creates a new release in Octopus Deploy, and optionally deploys it to an environment
Octopus Deploy: Deploy Release Deploys an existing release to a new environment
Octopus Deploy: Promote Release Promotes an existing release from one environment to another.
The plugin is simply a wrapper for Octo.exe, the Octopus command line tool for creating and deploying releases.
