@hrishikesh, thanks for the correction.
However I honestly feel the Netlify Open API documentation needs an update as it’s very difficult to find information.
Most of the parameters are not explained and you can’t tell what it does.
Even the option "ignore_html_forms": false you provided is not available in the documentation. Correct me if I am wrong as I have searched the whole documentation.
I’d love to also confirm some extra details about this with regards to the netlify.toml file.
I know I could do this via the API and have written a script for that, but it would be more seamless if ignore_html_forms = false could be supplied via the netlify.toml file in the repo, or even for deploy previews from pull request.
The UI will read the data from the database and the database will mark the form detection as disabled. It’s the same as enabling asset optimization from netlify.toml BUT leaving it disabled in the UI. The TOML doesn’t change our database, so the UI won’t necessarily reflect that.
