Block apps from being deployed

Generally our apps and deploy pipeline should always be in a state where master is deployable.

If a release doesn’t work on integration or staging, consider reverting the commits if you’re unable to resolve the problem straight away.

In exceptional circumstances, we may wish to block deployment for a short period of time.

In this case, add a note to the application in the release app.

This should explain:

  • Why the app is not deployable at the moment
  • Who to contact about deploying the app
  • When you expect the app to be deployable again
