Conditional configuration based on commit message?

I would like to always test, but only deploy if commit message contains "[deploy]" in it.

The documentation isn't very clear to me. Does commit message filtering affect the entire build? If not, how would I write the configuration to meet the requirement.

If so, is there some way where I can do something like always run tests, but only deploy if commit message contains "[deploy]" in it?

thanks in advance

    Your assumption is correct, commit filtering affects entire build. Please check this YAML sample on how to make it conditionally for deployment only.

    - ps: if ($env:APPVEYOR_REPO_COMMIT_MESSAGE.Contains("[deploy]")) {$env:RUN_DEPLOYMENT = "true"}
    - provider: <provider_name>
        RUN_DEPLOYMENT: true

    The same can be done with UI.

    More details on conditional deployment here.

    You can use APPVEYOR_REPO_COMMIT_MESSAGE_EXTENDED environment variable if your keyword is after line break in commit message (can happen with multiple squashed commits).
