Uploading a draft Zip deploy via REST API

Hi,

We’re having issues with the netlify “deploy” command taking a long time (~5 min).

Instead, we’d like to use the Zip file method to create a draft deploy. The zip method (Get started with the Netlify API | Netlify Docs) creates a production deploy instead.

Is there a way to use the Zip method to create a draft deploy instead?

Thanks

Any deploy that you don’t publish to production is “draft” by default, unless I’m misunderstanding what you mean by draft. Could you clarify?
