Hello there Netlify Support,
I have a site that I do not want Netlify to build and deploy automatically as part of CI. It’s far too expensive at my org because there are too many peers, too many commits. We would consume our build time capacity in less than three days.
master to build and deploy only via build hook.
I set Build Settings > Builds > Stop Builds, but when I try to manually trigger a build via webhook, nothing happens. This feels like misbehavior or the wrong UX? I think a manual build trigger should be able to override the CI build setting.
When I set Build Settings > Builds > Activate Builds, I can trigger a build via webhook, but now all commits to
master also cause builds, which eats up my build minute allocation.
I cannot figure out how to accomplish what I want. I don’t want to use some hack with another branch because I’d have to onboard engineers to a workaround that shouldn’t be a workaround.
