Triggering deploy on content update for static site

Is it possible to update a Static Site Without triggering ci/cd on Github but still deploying to render?

What exactly happens when a build is successful and render automatically updates?

Could someone tell me how to do that automatic render update not on a github ci/cd successfull build nor on a github push but rather on some event of my own choosing?

Basically how do I call render to update site programmatically?

You can trigger a deploy using deploy hooks: Deploy Hooks | Render · Cloud Hosting for Developers

Thanks Christopher, yes, you can disable auto-deploys from the settings page of your service and then use the deploy hook to trigger a build exactly when you want.

Is there any advanced documentation on how Deploy Hooks work?
