How to remove the environment tab?

I was installing docusaurus and by mistake did the deploy into the wrong repository. Got into some troubles to disable the GitHub Pages, but after a while I did. But the tab don't go away and I can't find a way to remove it.


There is any way?

Re: How to remove the environment tab?

Hey @diegobernardes,


Thanks for reaching out! It isn't currently possible to remove the environment tab but our Engineering Team is working on adding a setting for this in the future.


I can't guarantee if or when we'll have the setting shipped but I'll pass on your +1 to the team for this feature.

I hope this helps,

Gets my +1 also.  The tab is awful looking and not helpful in my opinion.

Re: How to remove the environment tab?

It would be really nice to have the ability to remove Deployments / Environments.


My repo is now using GitHub Actions for deployments.  Previously it used the Zeit Now plugin for GitHub for deployments, and GitHub Pages before that.


My repo's Environments page is full of artifacts from these old deployment options whereas the current option with GitHub Actions doesn't actually show up there (I'm currently using a fork off of actions/zeit-now).


This question has also been asked on Stack Overflow here -


Side note: The top of this post says "Solved! Go to Solution." but clicking that link leads to a post saying this is an unsolved open issue.

Any news on this so far? We would like to remove environments by using the API.




Works for us by setting the deployment status to 'inactive'.

Don't forget to include those preview headers:

Also wondering how to get rid of this. Seems like a simple thing for the team to enable.

Re: environment tab

If I'm not wrong, it is for 'tracking product deployments', e.g. a website to GitHub pages, a backend to Heroku, etc.  


It seems to be just a page where you can see details about when your product was shipped to production, but we have commit status checks for it so it is dumb.
