Thanks for your reply Jade. I’m not sure I quite follow, though. Are you suggesting I could invoke once-off jobs via my web process, from a cron process - and so because the cron process never/rarely changes, it doesn’t need semi-automated deploys? I could see this potentially working, but it feels quite kludgy - essentially firing off two processes when one would ideally be good enough, and having to delve into an API as opposed to just pinging a deploy hook with curl.
I’ll consider it - and would appreciate access for the API if possible! - but right now I suspect it may be too much effort as a workaround.
