Automatically approve and mark Octopus Deploy changes via DLM Automation Suite
Right now (and admittedly I've not tried it but I've looked at how it works) it looks like the Dashboard knows nothing about full fledged 'official' deployments and requires you manually approve each change made via the DLM automation suite (e.g. Octopus).
If this is the case, then in order to be part of the suite it MUST be able to track these changes and label accordingly with no user intervention.
For me, this dashboard is ONLY useful if it tells me about unauthorized changes - I care not a jot about ones made by Octopus since, at that point, there is no source drift.
We’re currently working on an API integration between tools in the Automation Suite and the dashboard. Our aim for the feature is to be able to do exactly this – picking up version numbers from your Continuous Integration/Release Management tools and auto approving changes from your approved pipeline.

I really want this feature also. I'm using Octopus Deploy to migrate my Schema (packaged in Team City), Apps, and SSIS. When I look at the DLM dashboard everything looks like drift because we don't use our CI server to do the deployments.
