About deployment history

You can deliver deployments through GitHub Actions and environments or with the REST API and third party apps. For more information about using environments to deploy with GitHub Actions, see "Using environments for deployment." For more information about deployments with the REST API, see "REST API endpoints for repositories."

On the deployments page of your repository, you can view the following aspects of your deployments.

  • Currently active deployments across various environments
  • Deployments filtered by environment
  • Your repository's full deployment history
  • Associated commits that triggered the deployment
  • Connected GitHub Actions workflow logs
  • The deployment URL (if one exists)
  • The source pull request and branch related to each deployment
  • Deployment statuses. For more information about deployment statuses, see "Deployments."

By default, the deployments page shows currently active deployments from select environments and a timeline of the latest deployments for all environments.
