Rolling builds

You can cancel running builds or builds on hold - no need to abort them manually! If you turn on the Rolling Builds feature, the previous builds of your app can be automatically aborted once a new one is started.

Please note that manual and scheduled builds are also cancelled if you start a new build with the Rolling builds option enabled.

When is a build aborted?

If you trigger a build on a branch where a build is already running, the running build is aborted only if it runs the same Workflow.

For example, if you trigger a build on the master branch of your repository with the deploy Workflow, it will NOT cancel a build running on the same master branch with the primary Workflow.

You can also set which types of triggered builds you wish to abort. Let’s see how!

  1. Open your Dashboard and select your app.

  2. Select the Settings tab from the menubar.

  3. Scroll down to the ENABLE ROLLING BUILDS option and toggle it.

  4. Select the type(s) of builds you wish to abort when a new build is started.

    Rolling builds
  • Pull Requests: will cancel all previous builds for Pull Requests and all related Pushes.

  • Pushes: will cancel all previous builds for Pushes to the same branch.

  • Running builds: will also auto-cancel running builds in addition to on-hold ones.

All done! From now on, you don’t have to wait for a triggered build to finish if you do not need it!
