Add Descriptions and context variables to deployments


Remove the burden of pre-existing knowledge when looking at application deployments. With descriptions, you can add context about the application within the deployment. You can add things like application owners, link to source control repository, link monitoring dashboards and more. Adding descriptions to deployments can be done simply by adding a description field in the deployment manifest and providing it a string value.

Additionally, it is now possible to define context variables in the deployment file. The context variables are accessible from within webhooks and canary analysis. It is still possible to pass context variables at runtime using the --add-context flag in the CLI. You can read more about passing context variables at runtime here.
