Automated Deploy when there shouldn't be one

I recently set up a new project with the "Deploy a package" step. I have not assigned any triggers to the project. In my build solution, I am using octo.exe to push a package to the internal nugget feed and create a release. As soon as the release is created it is deployed to an environment. In the past, when using the deploy a nuget pacakge step, this never occured. Where do I look to turn that off for my project and allow the deploy-release function in octo.exe control what I want deployed and when.

    Hi Allen,

    Thank you for contacting Octopus Deploy support in regards to this query,

    Based on the information provided in your query, it sounds like, within your specified Lifecycle, Octopus is configured to automatically deploy to the environment upon release creation.

    To resolve this issue without making changes to your command line process you can simply update the lifecycle and change the environment from "Automatically Deploy" to "Manually Deploy".

    For further information on this please refer to the following documentation on Lifecycle Phases

    If you have any additional queries or require clarification please let me know :)

    Kind Regards,

    That seems to be it Reece. I didn't realize the lifecycle was set up that way. I removed it as an option and have the results that I expected.
