I’ve added a note to this article:



Starting in Looker 5.20, you can add a secret for your deploy webhook. See our documentation page for more information.


Why was a single repo / multiple branch Git Workflow retired?   This is a very popular workflow in the enterprise segment. 

 

The recommended approach now:

https://help.looker.com/hc/en-us/articles/360033944133-Looker-Multistage-Development-Framework-Dev-QA-Prod-

uses mutliple repos where it is easy for git history to be lost and more difficult to migrate/merge.

 

The other popular flow is Trunkbased, but the recommended flow doesn’t support that either.

Is there a roadmap item that will enable GitFlow or Trunkbased workflow?
