Sequential build number

Hi all,

Similar to GITHUB_RUN_NUMBER at Github or CIRCLE_BUILD_NUM at CircleCI, it would be great Netlify’s build generates and exposes a unique and sequential build number.

This number would begin at 1 for the workflow’s first run, and increments with each new run.
This number wouldn’t change if the workflow run was re-run.


It’s better than build ids (human-readable and sortable) and avoid to manage version number committed to Git (either as text file or tags).

Thank you

Thanks so much for that feature request! I don’t think we’ll be able to accommodate it very soon, but it does make sense and isn’t an unreasonable request - just hard for us to implement. I’ll get it filed for our product team to consider. Please keep them coming!
