Create a deployment status

Users with push access can create deployment statuses for a given deployment.

GitHub Apps require read & write access to "Deployments" and read-only access to "Repo contents" (for private repos). OAuth Apps require the repo_deployment scope.

flash Preview

New features in the Deployments API on GitHub are currently available during a public beta. Please see the blog post for full details.

To access the new environment parameter, the two new values for the state parameter (in_progress and queued), and use auto_inactive on production deployments during the public beta period, you must provide the following custom media type in the Accept header:

application/vnd.github.flash-preview+json

ant-man Preview

The inactive state and the log_url, environment_url, and auto_inactive parameters are currently available for developers to preview. Please see the blog post for full details.

To access the API during the preview period, you must provide a custom media type in the Accept header:

application/vnd.github.ant-man-preview+json

string The full URL of the deployment's output. This parameter replaces target_url. We will continue to accept target_url to support legacy uses, but we recommend replacing target_url with log_url. Setting log_url will automatically set target_url to the same value. Default: ""
