You can trigger one-off deployments to any stage or service in Seed. This can be useful for example, when you want to test a hotfix branch in your staging environment.

Manually Deploy a Stage

To manually deploy a stage, head over to the app pipeline. And hit Deploy on the stage you want to manually deploy.

Select stage

Here you’ll be prompted to select a branch you want to deploy with. Or if this stage has a branch connected to it, you’ll be asked if you want to deploy using it.

Hit stage trigger deploy

You can optionally force a deploy, more on this below.

Manually Deploy a Service

To deploy a specific service, click the dropdown for the service in the stage you want to deploy. Hit Deploy Service.

Select service dropdown

Just as above, you’ll be asked to select a branch.

Hit service trigger deploy

Force Deploys

By default, Seed will only deploy the services that have been updated. You can read more about how Seed figures out which services need to be deployed here. To skip this check and deploy all your services, select the Force deploy option.

Select force option

This option tells Seed to deploy all your services even if there are no changes that’ve been detected.
