Configuration (.github/deploy.yml)

Deliverybot controls deployments based on a configuration file. Targets are the top level resource for this file which house configuration to trigger a list of deployments depending on specific conditions. Documentation for those conditions and fields is provided below.

# .github/deploy.yml
production:
  environment: name 
<target>.auto_deploy_on

Controls auto deployment behaviour given a ref. If any new push events are detected on this event, the deployment will be triggered.

# .github/deploy.yml
production:
  auto_deploy_on: refs/heads/master 
<target>.transient_environment

Specifies if the given environment is specific to the deployment and will no longer exist at some point in the future. Default: false

If this value is true all deployments triggered on a pr will be marked inactive.

<target>.production_environment

Specifies if the given environment is one that end-users directly interact with. Default: true when environment is production and false otherwise.

<target>.required_contexts

The status contexts to verify against commit status checks. Default: []

<target>.environment

The name of the environment that was deployed to (e.g., staging or production). Default: none

<target>.task

The name of the task for the deployment (e.g., deploy or deploy:migrations). Default: none

<target>.auto_merge

Attempts to automatically merge the default branch into the requested ref, if it’s behind the default branch. Default: false

<target>.payload
