Deploying branches

Each of an application’s VIP Platform environments can track its own specific branch of the application’s wpcomvip GitHub repository. If the branch deploying to an environment needs to be changed, create a VIP Support request for assistance.

Branch protection rules

By default, all repositories are set up with basic GitHub branch protection rules. These include a rule to prevent a branch from being deleted, and a rule to prevent force-pushes for all non-Admin users. Only GitHub users with Admin permissions have the ability to modify the branch protections rules. For more information, review GitHub’s documentation on Managing a branch protection rule.
