A fix has been created and is being rolled out to affected customers.

This issue affects instances of Tentacle that use SHA1 (an old, unsupported, encryption algorithm), and prevents them from connecting to Octopus Cloud. This was a side effect of the Octopus Server .NET 8 upgrade, and the resulting change to the underlying OS from Debian 11/OpenSSL 1.x to Debian 12/OpenSSL 3.x.

If you continue to be affected by this issue, please try the workaround detailed at, or contact support at
