For all of you building their projects on Vercel, we're thrilled to announce our next official integration.

About the Integration

GraphCMS Vercel Integration

The Vercel integration allows you to seamlessly update your static deployments at the push of a button from within GraphCMS itself! Not to be confused with triggered builds via webhooks, this integration allows you to install a button in the GraphCMS sidebar of a content model for manual redeploys, giving you more control on the deployment process.

Requirements to use the GraphCMS Vercel Integration

When using this Vercel integration, you should already have a project deployed in an active Vercel project. If you don't already have one, we recommend signing up for a free account on Vercel.

Your Vercel project should be configured to load content from a GraphCMS project.

Note: Each GraphCMS project can support up to 3 concurrent Vercel projects. This integration uses explicit OAuth2.

What can you do with the Vercel integration in GraphCMS

  • Trigger Vercel builds from within your content view with a single click.
  • Specify which content models display the button in the sidebar, giving you more control over how builds are triggered when there are changes to your content.

We'd love to gather your feedback on the GraphCMS Vercel Integration, and are looking forward to hearing from you.

PS: We're currently working on showing you the status of your Vercel builds within the GraphCMS UI itself, and should be rolling this out in the coming days.
