In your Account Settings, you can configure Release to create Github Deployments when your environments are being created and deployed.
At the bottom of the
Account Info tab in your Account Settings, you will find your Github Settings.
Send deployment updates from Release to Github PR's is off by default. Turning this setting on will create deployments. If you're unfamiliar with them, please refer to Github's Deployments docs.
Release will create either a pending deployment when the environment is being created, a successful deployment if the environment successfully deploys, or an errored deployment if something goes wrong while deploying the environment.
The format of the name for the deployment is
<App Name>: <User Name>-<Environment Name> (<Environment Handle>). The
View Deployment button will appear if your application has a single hostname. If your application has multiple hostnames, you can set a Primary App Link to let Release know which hostname it should use.
