Variables within the flow are not currently supported, but will be added in an upcoming release. Thanks for the feedback!

@merwan what's the status on this feature? I'm trying to do some simple calendar event creation and am not able to leverage the same syntax I see in existing templates.

Hi Patrick, we're working on this functionality and plan to release it soon. Thanks for your patience and feedback.

Thanks @merwan ! I was able to get past the above issue leveraging a time API ( www.timeapi.org ) and HTTP request but variables and inline-functions would be greatly appriciated!

Any updates? This seems like a more fundamental and essential business feature for minimal workflow, much more than connecting to twitter!!!

Adding a first class function editing experience in Flow continues to be on our backlog and something we plan to address in the future. However, in the meanwhile, here's a workaround you can employ.

The variance of a random variable X {\displaystyle X} is the expected value of the squared deviation from the mean of X {\displaystyle X} , μ = E [ X ] {\displaystyle \mu =\operatorname {E} [X]} :

This definition encompasses random variables that are generated by processes that are discrete , continuous , neither , or mixed. The variance can also be thought of as the covariance of a random variable with itself:

A mnemonic for the above expression is "mean of square minus square of mean". This equation should not be used for computations using floating point arithmetic because it suffers from catastrophic cancellation if the two components of the equation are similar in magnitude. There exist numerically stable alternatives .

If the random variable X {\displaystyle X} represents samples generated by a continuous distribution with probability density function f ( x ) , {\displaystyle f(x),} then the population variance is given by

where μ {\displaystyle \mu } is the expected value of X {\displaystyle X} given by

and where the integrals are definite integrals taken for x {\displaystyle x} ranging over the range of X . {\displaystyle X.}

Action-level variables are available during execution of an action. Indexer notion such as Octopus.Action[Website].TargetRoles can be used to refer to values for different actions.

Output variables are collected during execution of a step and made available to subsequent steps using notation such as Octopus.Action[Website].Output[WEBSVR01].Package.InstallationDirectoryPath to refer to values base on the action and machine that produced them. See also Output variables .

Step-level variables are available during execution of a step. Indexer notion such as Octopus.Step[Website].Number can be used to refer to values for different steps.

Error detail returned

Octopus.Deployment.Error and Octopus.Deployment.ErrorDetail will only display the exit code and Octopus stack trace for the error. As we cannot parse the deployment log, we can only extract the exit/error codes. It cannot show detailed information on what caused the error. For full information on what happened when the deployment fails, you will need to reference the logs.
