API build trigger | Add ability to specify commit/test message

api

#1

Currently, when triggering the build via api call the commit message is being pulled from latest commit. In case when using ci for running tests, that is not very convenient as there is only an indication that the build was triggered via API. So if you don’t actually commit anything and just run builds you may end up with 10+ same commit messages for different builds. It doesn’t affect the workflow, so will probably be a nice-to-have, but very useful imo. I was thinking of smth like this in api call:

   build_parameters: {
          CIRCLE_MSG: `${msgForTriggeringBuildsViaApi}`
        }
      }

Thank you!

+1 from us - this would make Circle much more usable for viewing API-triggered jobs
