How to get deployment status via doctl

Hi, according to the documentation, the get-deployment command doesn’t contain any status field.

I can see a progress field, but, for example, when I cancelled the deployment, this got stuck and didn’t move past 2/10. I am using CI to display the deployment status using this command, but how do I know when is it finished and I can stop fetching the results?

I’d expect something like a STATUS field which reads something like “in progress”, “finished”, “cancelled”, “error”

Hey @fantiago,

I believe that this is not possible with doctl as of the time being, but indeed, this sounds like a great idea, it’d be super useful!

The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to the doctl GitHub repository and post a new feature request, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented:

Feel free to share a link here to your GitHub feature request once created.

Hope that helps!

- Bobby.
