Force build from UI

Hi, I think the ‘checking build content for changes’ step assumes that changes only come from the repo, but if your build also consumes data from an external source (and it changes), the build result is going to be different.

There is no easy way to trigger a deployment from the UI in this use case, which I think must be very common in Gatsby sites for example.

Hi @cesarvarela

I don’t believe so. It is checking your repository to see if it needs to clone it again because of a change (e.g. a new dependency, new page.)

If you are fetching data during build from an external source (e.g. Strapi, Sanity, other API endpoint) this is done every time the build is executed.
