Octopus Deploy can help you perform repeatable and controlled deployments of your applications into Service Fabric clusters.
What kind of applications can I deploy to Service Fabric?
The short answer is: anything and everything! As long as you can script the deployment, Octopus can automate your deployments into a Service Fabric cluster.
We provide built-in first-class support for application package deployments in Service Fabric. For everything else, we provide a special step for running PowerShell scripts against Service Fabric.
Where do Service Fabric Steps execute?
All Service Fabric Steps are executed on the Octopus Server, so no Targets/Tentacles are needed for them.
Service Fabric Applications
Octopus Deploy provides first-class support for deploying Service Fabric application packages into Service Fabric clusters.
Service Fabric PowerShell Scripts
Octopus Deploy provides a convenient step for executing PowerShell scripts using the Service Fabric SDK cmdlets
Both Service Fabric Applications and PowerShell Scripts require connection to a cluster.
Octopus provides an option for connecting to Service Fabric clusters securely with Client Certificates.
Octopus also provides an option for connecting to Service Fabric clusters securely with Azure Active Directory.
