Deploy on git tags only

I’m trying to deploy my app only when I create a git tag for a release. Is this possible with Netlify? If not, can I achieve it by linking some other platform to Netlify?

My use case is the following:

  1. Feature is finished
  2. Merge to master
  3. Create release on GitHub and create a tag
  4. Deploy app on Netlify

Sure it’s possible. You could add [skip ci] or [skip netlify] anywhere to your commit message. Netlify won’t build for that commit. Then, when you release a tag (probably using a GitHub action), you can release a commit without the flags and Netlify will build for that commit.
