Thanks for getting in touch! We have a feature that sounds
perfect for your scenario! In Octopus 3.5, we introduced
Subscriptions. With them, you can 'subscribe' to audited events
(like creating a release), and get email or webhook notifications
when those events happen in Octopus. Then you can avoid having to
use the email and manual intervention steps altogether :)
You can read more details about Subscriptions in our documentation
and in our
blog, which we wrote introducing them when we added this
feature. The blog post includes a simple guide to get you going as
Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any other questions.
Sorry I didn't clearly address the fact that no specific
Create Release event filter exists within the audit
& Subscriptions. It's considered a Document
Created event, though other events (for example when you
create a Project) also fall within Document Created.
Using just that filter may not be ideal.
A possible option you could consider is using the filters in a
way to narrow down the events applicable to your Subscription. For
example, select a specific Project and a specific User, and you'll
only receive events related to that Project and
done by that User (which will include Create Release).
You can use more filters in addition to that as well :)
