Deploying to a specific location in target server

I have a batch file which I use to package and deploy to our octopus server. In our octopus deploy UI we then deploy that package to different environment.
The batch file is as below:

dotnet publish Service\Common.csproj -c Debug -r win-x64
nuget pack Service\bin\Debug\netcoreapp2.0\win-x64\publish\Service.nuspec -OutputDirectory Service\bin\Debug\netcoreapp2.0 -Version %version%
nuget push Service\bin\Debug\netcoreapp2.0\Service.%version%.nupkg -ApiKey API-OurKey -Source https://ourserver/octopus/nuget/packages

Well this works fine but as an additional step I want to also copy certain nupkg files to a particular location on our test environment. These nupkg files are basically our package sources where we have setup our local nuget feeds.

These nuget files are a part of the same solution but different project withing the solution. So I have 3 projects in my solution

These nupkg files which are part of above projects Data and engine are automatically generated on build.

Now What I want is when I click on the batch file it would also copy these files to octopus and then octopus will deploy to those certain locations.

    Hi Karan,

    Thanks for getting in touch,

    It's definitely possible to copy your NuGet Package to a specified location during deployment,

    This can be done by utilizing the Transfer Package Step. This option was introduced in Octopus Deploy version 3.7.12, you need need to be utilizing this version to access this functionality.

    Whilst transferring a package you will need to specify a location that the file will be copied to once it has been uploaded from the server.

    This package will be transferred to the target during the package acquisition phase, and then copied to the specified location at the appropriate time during the deployment process.

    I hope this helps answer your query, if you require any further information or clarification please let me know :)

    Have a great day!

    Kind Regards,

    I don't see that step. Looks like we might be on an older version. I will talk to my deployment team regarding this.

    Hi Karan,

    Thank you for getting back to me regarding this,

    Not a problem, since you are not seeing the option it would definitely appear you are utilizing an older Octopus version.

    I appreciate you letting me know where you are at with this.

    If you require any assistance in the future please do not hesitate to reach out :)

    Kind Regards,
