Freezing deployments

How to stop continuous deployment for a while

Problem

You want to work on services or their deployments but do not want these changes to be deployed, e.g. because of an outage.

Steps

  1. On cee/deployment-all, go to the CI/CD settings, and open the “Deploy freezes” section.

  2. Add a deploy freeze with the following information:

    Freeze start: 0 0 * * *
    Freeze end: 59 23 * * *
    Time zone: [UTC 0] UTC
    

    From this moment on, no newly created pipelines will have any deployment jobs.

  3. To reenable deployments, delete the deploy freeze and run a complete deployment pipeline.
