Add setting to disable build hooks

Sometimes you’re doing a lot of small iterative changes in a CMS which you need to publish to work with the latest content locally. Those can burn a lot of build minutes needlessly. Would be cool if there was a way to temporarily disable build hooks under deploy settings in such cases.

Hey @Janosh, thanks for writing in. Have you checked out our docs on [skip ci]? This may help you accomplish what you want:

Here’s a description of what this would look like with Netlify CMS:

Hi @jen, I do know about [skip ci] but it’s only for skipping builds triggered by changes that involve a commit message. In my case, the builds are triggered by a Contentful web hook and don’t have an associated commit message.

I was hoping for a button in the deploy settings for temporarily disabling all or individual hooks as indicated in the screenshot below.


Ah, thanks for clarifying! We’re working on a feature like this and will share updates here when we have them :slight_smile:

Great to hear that, looking forward to those updates. :+1:

+1 for this feature. Any update on this so far?

Hey @mahesh.w,
You do now have the ability to stop builds and then reactivate them when you’re ready :rocket:
