When is Condition->Required useful? Why is it not defaulted to true?

What is the Condition->Required flag in the step template used for? Aren’t all steps required even when this box is not checked? What is the use case? Why is it not defaulted to true?

The documentation for this flag is not good. Can it be updated to include a use case or better explanation of what this flag actually does? What happens if it is checked vs not checked?

Hi Justin,

Thanks for getting in touch! I think this is something we could probably be a bit clearer on in our documentation.

To directly answer your here, during a deployment you are able to by default skip a step. If you enable this Required box, you are not able to manually exclude the step during the deployment.

The below screenshot shows you what this looks like during a deployment.

I will add a screenshot and some further explanation to our documentation to hopefully make it clearer in the future.

Let me know if this helps or if you have any further questions.

Best regards,

Perfect. Thank you.
