[Lifetime] Retry deployment on failure

Please add a magical button to retry a failed deployment.

It would be a time-saver to not have to create a new staging, validate the plan again and re-deploy.

Hi Caio,

Thank you so much for your idea. I’m marking this as “on our radar” since we think this is a good idea.

This isn’t currently on our roadmap but we’ll keep an eye here if this idea continues to grow and get comments from all of you.  

Merged this idea with 'Retry a deployment from 2nd step' (created on 30 Oct 2018 14:48:46 by Nelson Freitas)

Lately, we are having issues while deploying between environments. 

Those issues are aborting the deployment in the middle of the 2nd step. And those issues can be networking failures, query timeouts, etc.

In order to retry the deployment, we need to start over the 1st step again. The full deployment can take 4+ hours.

It would be awesome if we could retry the deployment from the 2nd step. Since, there is no need to recompile everything again, I would say this can be very useful.

Thank you,

Any update regarding this idea?
I'm also 100% behind the implementation of this simple and yet effective LifeTime feature!

We're happy to tell you that since Release Jun.2019 LifeTime supports retrying aborted deployment plans with just one click. Read more about this feature:


Thanks a lot for all your feedback!

Hi Rita,

great improvement, although is it my bad understanding or this will not retry from the 2nd step if the deployment was aborted during the 2nd step?

Because my idea was to have a way on retrying the "solution" not from the beginning, but from the 2nd step (obviously when the deployment was aborted during the 2nd step), as retrying from the beginning will take hours to complete something (compilations) that were already done. 

Thank you!


Hi, Nelson

You're right. The feature we released makes a copy of the plan that failed and executes it. This means it will execute from the start.

Thank you for your feedback, we will keep an eye on this idea to see if more people have this need.

Best regards, 

Rita Tomé

Hello Rita,

It would be a great improvement if we can retry a failed plan from stage 2.
Anything planned for future releases?
