Deleting multiple releases

When testing the configuration of deployment of our project, we have created quite a few releases.
Now before demo this to our team I would like to delete all old release (some deployed, some not).

Is there a way to batch delete multiple releases?

Tank you for at great product, hopefully our team will embrace Octopus, so we can gain more control of our Deployment Pipeline.

    Hi Anders,

    Thanks for getting in touch! And thank you for the very kind words - I'm happy to hear you're having a good experience with Octopus so far!

    There is a way to delete a batch of releases in one go. I'd recommend using our Octo.exe command line tool, which can be downloaded here if you haven't already.

    You can use the delete-releases command in Octo.exe, where you'd specify your project and range of versions to delete. As an example, you could use something like this:
    octo delete-releases --project=ProjectName --minversion="1.0.0" --maxversion="2.0.0" --server= --apikey=xxx

    This example would delete all releases that fall within versions 1.0.0 and 2.0.0. You can reference our doc page on deleting releases via Octo.exe as well. :)

    I hope this helps! Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any further questions going forward. :)

    Kind regards,

    Great that did the trick, was looking in the UI instead of octopack tool.

    Thank you.

    Kind regards
