Re-deploy Operations


In certain conditions, a redeployment of a project could be necessary to apply a modification. It could be either manual or automatic, depending on the triggering event.

Automatic redeployment

If the event affects a specific environment (e.g. adding a user/variable at the environment level) then a redeployment will be automatically triggered.

Manual redeployment

If it affects multiple environments (e.g. adding an admin user at the project level, or adding a project variable) then a manual redeploy is needed to see the change on each environment.


Integrations only start a deployment if they need to change the environment, and that’s automatic.

List of events that need a redeploy

  • Pushing code on a branch with an active environment (including merge, sync operations)
  • Adding, modifying, or removing a user to an environment
  • Adding, modifying, or deleting a domain or a certificate
  • Adding, modifying, or deleting a variable

Impact of a redeployment on the application

A redeployment will:

  • rebuild application if necessary
  • verify letsencrypt certificate and renew it if necessary
  • restart services and application containers

Incoming requests may take longer to be processed during the redeploy as they are like paused until everything is running again. Nevertheless, a downtime could happen.

Established SSH connections to the project will be reset.
