Run ignore check before deploy approval flow

I’m trying to deploy a small static site within a larger monorepo. Most changes within the repo have nothing to do with this small part of the repo and most contributors to the repo will never be touching this part of the project.

The problem is that it seems the ignore checks (including the default check when the base directory is not the root) only runs after the deploy has been “approved”. Logically this makes sense, but I’m getting a ton of deploy requests and I would not like to add all contributors to my netlify team.

I’m not quite sure what the solution is other than running the ignore check first - perhaps running it first could be a configurable setting?

Hi @theo,

We’ve shared the feedback with the team. I don’t believe there’s any easy solution available right now and there doesn’t seem to be any workaround either.
