No Deploy Friday action
There is no worst idea than deploying on Friday. Here I will show you how to prevent it at a pipeline level.
At some point, Volkan Özçelik mentioned an idea about preventing deployments on Friday. In general, it's straightforward to add such an action.
We just have to a local shell action with:
if [[ $(date +%u) == 5 ]]; then echo 'Do not deploy on Firday.' && exit 1; fi;
and that's it. In the end, our pipeline would look like this:
If you are more into GHA, then just add something like this before the deploy action:
jobs: example-job: runs-on: ubuntu-latest name: Block on Friday steps: - shell: bash run: | if [[ $(date +%u) == 5 ]]; then echo 'Do not deploy on Firday.' && exit 1; fi;
Time to sum up
Will this work? Of course, it will. Should you use it? Rather not - it's a bit of a joke. Things like this should be handled at the organizational level.
But if for some reason you see that Friday deployments are a problem at your company - then don't hesitate to add this to your pipelines.
