About the 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.

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.
