One-off parameterized builds


I’m using paramtereized builds to run nightly builds.

I discovered today that this impacts our deployment of fixes because if a developer reruns the last nightly build in order to pick up a change in a dependency, it will not deploy as it has the ‘NIGHLTY_BUILD’ env var set.

I’m not sure what a good way to address this is. Clicking the ‘re-run’ button should re-run the exact same build as last time, but something to make the parameterized nature of the build more explicit woud lbe very useful

  • Have a warning icon/text to highlight the build is parameterized
  • Allow build titles via the api Build "title"?
  • Dialog to ask the user if they want to re-run the build with/without custom parameters

… or something else
