Feature Request: More control over rebuilds in Digital Ocean App

It would be helpful if there was more control over when DO App rebuilt.

I would like to change environment variables without triggering a rebuild and the reason is:

If I make changes to my code base which includes adding new environment variables then I go to DO and add the environment variables. This triggers a build but it is not pulling the new code base from github during this rebuild. So once that build is done then I have to rebuild again so that it rebuilds with the new version on github.

Long story short I have to do two rebuilds if I change something that requires adding environment variables.

Another option would be to have a setting that disables auto rebuild on environment variable changes or to at least cancel a rebuild that is in progress.

Hey @midwaydevservices,

Great idea, sounds like it’d be super useful!

The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.
