Release management in Drone

#1

I’m migrating from Octopus (a deployment tool popular in .net world) and there I get a nice panel with all the releases and environment, so I can deploy any release to any environment, then promote to another, etc. Is this part of Drone or am I supposed to use an external tool for that? If later, what is the recommended approach?

there is a command for build promotion that triggers a pipeline of event type promote

drone build promote [repository] [build] [environment]

for example:

drone build promote octocat/hello-world 42 production

there is not a screen in the user-interface to visualize environments and which build is actively promoted to the environment, however, I believe there is an open issue for this at github.com/drone/drone/drone-ui
