We have this site setup in Netlify and working just fine: https://peaceful-wright-319729.netlify.app
Whenever there is a commit in GitHub to master, this gets auto deployed and published. Works great.
We have now set up so that any branch gets pushed to Netlify as well using this setting:
Deploy all branches pushed to the repository
And that seems to work too. Except we have no idea (without logging in to Netlify) of knowing what that new url for this branch is. For example, when a new developer created a branch and pushed to it, Netlify deployed it just fine. And I can see in the Netlify UI that the URL to preview this new branch is: https://5f34dd128cdc6b000816dad6--peaceful-wright-319729.netlify.app
So, clearly, it added a prefix of some unique identifyer before the “normal” domain name.
My question here is: “how can we know this url without having to login to Netlify?” The docs seem to say that we should be seeing that in GitHub somewhere (the commit list?), but I don’t see it. We have not done a pull request yet, as… the preview is to be used to see the differences and test it before putting a pull request.
