Deployment frequency is the number of successful deployments to production in a given time period.
Frequent deployments require less coordination between teams trying to get their changes into production, making releases safer and less complex. In turn, when deployments are safer and simpler, teams feel comfortable deploying more frequently. Unlocking this feedback loop is the key to achieving continuous deployment.
HOW IT’S MEASURED
We auto-detect deployments for each repository using hooks from your Git provider when possible, but you can also manually assign specific workflows as production deployments for each repository. You can learn how to configure deployments here.
