Stop progression porgramatically

For a variety of reasons, i need to run automated UI tests after deployment. What I want to do is if those tests fail, prevent the progression of that version.

Looking at the octo.exe docs, I can’t find anything that will let me prevent the progression of Release 10 of Project Foo and I can’t find anything in the swagger api docs that screams at me “stop progression”

Can someone point me at the docs?

Ok so I should have just watched the HTTP requests the UI makes when clicking the prevent progression menu item. You POST to the /api/releases/{id}/defects endpoint with {"Description": "bad stuff"} to prevent progression and you post to /api/releases/{id}/defects/resolve to bring it back. You can’t, apparently, post multiple defects at one time.

Hopefully this will help someone in the future if they’re trying to figure this out.
