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 can enter a Git branch, tag, or commit that you want to deploy.

Select Git ref to trigger deploy

The next time you trigger a deployment, Seed will auto select the last ref that was deployed.

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 confirm the branch or to select one.

Hit service trigger deploy

Force Deploys

By default, Seed will only deploy the services and Lambda functions that have been updated. You can read more about Incremental Deploys here. To skip this check and deploy all your services and Lambdas, 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.

A Force deploy also clears the dependency cache for the stage you are deploying to.
