Choose a Git repository branch for your Deploy to Bluemix button
Do you want to use specific build input to deploy your app to IBM Bluemix as a part of an IBM Continuous Delivery toolchain? Now you can! All you need to do is specify a Git repository branch when you create your Deploy to Bluemix button.
Here is a sample button you can try out, which demonstrates the basic Hello World web application using “devBranch” as Git repo branch:
To create a Deploy to Bluemix button, copy and modify a snippet template in HTML or Markdown and include a public Git repo (e.g. from Git Repos and Issue Tracking, GitHub or elsewhere). When you add a branch parameter to the Git URL, the original public Git repo is cloned into a new, private Git repository. When you use the Deploy to Bluemix button, all branches of the git repo are cloned.
The specified Git branch is set as the input for the build job.
Tip: If you don’t specify a branch, the input for the build job is set to the master branch by default.
