Once you have your stages/environments configured, you might find yourself needing to change the branch that is tied to it.

This can happen when you are trying to test an update on staging that might not be on master (assuming you have staging connected to master).

Update the Source Branch

To change the branch that is tied to a stage, go in to the stage settings and select Update Source.

Click Update Stage Source

And select the branch that you’d like to auto-deploy to this stage.

Select branch to auto-deploy

This will automatically start creating a build in the stage with the selected branch.

Auto-Deploy Production

By default, auto-deploying for the prod or production stage is turned off. This is a good practice since it is better to review your code and infrastructure changes before deploying to production.

However, you might run in to cases where you’d like to auto-deploy to production. To do so, go to the stage settings for production and select Enable Auto-Deploy.

Enable auto-deploy for production

Just as the case above, this allows you to select the branch you’d like to auto-deploy. Finally, you can disable auto-deploying to production at any time in the future by hitting the Disable Auto-Deploy button.

Disable auto-deploy for production

By updating the stage source, Seed gives you the flexibility to maintain consistent endpoints for your environments while deploying the branch you need.
