Thanks to the help of metadata, we are now able to provide you with a much more insightful event list on the dashboard available on our website.
Before this change, you were only able to see the deployment URL and the creator used to always be the owner of the team you were a part of.
Thanks to metadata, all of this changes now:
As you can see, the correct authors of deployments generated by commits are now shown. In addition, every deployment created through GitHub receives a special icon.
Thanks to our GitHub integration, anyone with access to your repositories can trigger a deployment by pushing a commit or creating a pull request.
The contributor does not even need to be a member of your team on Now.
Even people outside of your team can trigger deployments, as long as they are capable of creating pull requests or commits.
Before this change, the dashboard was not rendering this information. But thanks to metadata support, you can now see those deployments along your regular ones.
This could even be used as a management tool, allowing your team to visualize what certain team members are building and try the results out right away by clicking on the deployment URL – all in a single place.
