Continuing or stopping a deployment by adding the Perform manual step task

Suggest edit Updated on February 4, 2021

Use manual steps so that users must take an action before a pipeline deployment can continue. Users can either accept the task to continue the deployment or reject the task to stop it.

To add a manual step that a user must perform in the pipeline, do the following steps:
  1. Do one of the following actions:
    • Click a task, click the More icon, and then click either Add task above or Add task below.
    • Click Add task in the stage.
  2. In the Task list, click Perform manual step.
  3. In the Job name field, enter text that describes the action that you want the user to take.
  4. In the Assigned to field, press the Down arrow key and select the operator ID to assign the task to.
  5. Click Submit.
  6. Continue configuring your pipeline. For more information, see one of the following topics:
