Hi there,

I don’t think that this is available as an environment variable out of the box.

You can see the list with the available environment variables here:

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/app-platform/how-to/use-environment-variables/

This one here might be useful for you in case that you need to associate the current deployment with a specific commit:

COMMIT_HASH: git commit hash used for this build

Alternatively, you could use the DigitalOcean API or the doctl command-line tool to get a list with the last deployments:

doctl apps list-deployments your_app_id_here
