13.3.2. Manual Deployment

In contrast to automatic deployment, manual deployment of applications provides greater control of the application deployment process. Manual deployments of an application can be from a Git reference, such as commit ID, tag, or branch, or from a binary artifact. Because automatic deployment is configured by default when a new application is created, it must be disabled to configure manual deployment for that application. Configuring Manual Deployment

Configure manual deployment for an application by disabling automatic deployment with the following command, specifying the application name:
$ rhc configure-app -a App_Name --no-auto-deploy
This command enables manual deployment of an application so that when the git push command is run, the application data is only pushed to the remote repository; the application is not deployed.
