OK - I have installed Octopus on a Azure Subscription via the INstall Script from the additions blade (+) in Azure. The Install has produced a web login - but I cannot see a Manager tab where I can get the Master Key from?

The documentation images don't appear to match what I am seeing the in Web Application so obvioulsy I am in the wrong place..but I cannot find the way to the right place...

    Hi Tom, Thanks for reaching out! I'm sorry to hear you are seeing issues retrieving the master key from Octopus.

    One option which comes to mind could be to RDP directly to the server which is running Octopus. From there you can open the Octopus Manager program and select "Show Master Key".

    Another method you can use to retrieve the master key is to use the Show-Master-Key command from a Windows Command Prompt (Please change values to suit your environment)

    C:\>cd "C:\Program Files\Octopus Deploy\Octopus"
    C:\Program Files\Octopus Deploy\Octopus>Octopus.Server.exe show-master-key

    Please let me know if you have any questions on this one.

    Kind regards,
