Build Only Changes

I've looked through the documentation and found this:, but when I push a change including only_commits.files through the REST API's Update Project Settings (YAML) endpoint, then requery to confirm the change took, it shows other changes I've pushed in the same update, but the only_commits section isn't present. Is it still there and not showing? Is there something I should be doing special for it? Is there any hope this function will get added to the site UI?

    Hi Alex,

    Sorry for confusion. Commit filtering are YAML-only settings and therefore are not available with REST API (even if you get or update settings in YAML and not JSON). So to take benefit of this feature, you project should use YAML file for configuration.

    We do not have plans to expose this feature in UI, at least in near future. There are many features like this or this which are YAML only and their number is growing. Generally we treat UI configuration as good place to start and when people need more sophisticated configurations, they switch to YAML.
