We have drone currently set up so that:
- Any feature branch being merged into our main branch causes a drone build which clones from main and creates various build artefacts.
- That build is then manually promoted to our staging and production environments using drone promotions with the targets “staging” and “production”, and everything works great.
The one difficulty we have is that someone can directly promote one of these drone builds to production without first going through staging, or if staging fails they can still continue to production.
Is there a straightforward way to prevent drone promotions with a certain target specified (prod) if there isn’t already green build to some other target (staging) which has the same parent build?
I hope my question makes sense. I can try to elaborate further if not.
