Run Promotion
Describes the process of promoting proposed runs into tracked runs on Spacelift.

What is Run Promotion?

As a quick summary of the differences between the two types of runs: proposed runs only display changes to be made, while tracked runs apply (deploy) the proposed changes.
Promoting a proposed run is triggering a tracked run for the same Git commit.

Using Run Promotion

Pre-Requisites

1) For a run to be promote-able, the proposed run must point to a commit that is newer than the stack's current commit.
2) To promote a run, you first need to ensure that you have Allow run promotion enabled in the stack settings of your stack(s) in which you'd like to promote runs.
Stack Settings > Behavior > Advanced Options > Allow Run Promotion
Enable the Allow run promotion feature within the Spacelift Stack's Settings.

Promote from Proposed Run View

Assuming you've enabled Run Promotion within the stack settings, and the commit to be promoted is newer than the stack's current commit. On a given proposed run, you will then see the "Promote" button as seen in the screenshot below. You simply need to click this button to promote the proposed run into a tracked run.

Promote from a Pull Request

For Spacelift users utilizing GitHub, a similar feature is available directly from the GitHub Pull Request. Assuming the same criteria is met as mentioned previously: 1) The commit to be promoted is newer than the stack's current commit 2) Run Promotion is enabled on the stack - Then, you will see a Deploy button available within the Checks tab of the pull request. This button will promote your proposed run into a tracked run.
