For “Deploy notifications” (settings/deploys#deploy-notifications), there are three related states:
- Deploy started
- Deploy succeeded
- Deploy failed
I have a mono repo where Netlify just monitors and deploys a subdirectory. What’s great is that Netlify skips building if that subdirectory doesn’t have any changes.
However, a skipped build is considered a “failed” build in Netlify deploy notification land. For example, this is what our Slack looks like after many changes to unrelated directories:
This is obviously confusing, as it looks like “things in our infrastructure are red.”
I propose a fourth type be added: “Deploy skipped.” What do you think?
