Hey, has anyone added a button that triggers a vercel build using the deploy hook? I couldn't find docs on how to add a custom button and function to the studio. Grateful for any info. thanks!

Or something more custom:
import * as React from "react";
import Button from "part:@sanity/components/buttons/default";

const labels = {
  LOADING: "Loading...",
  READY: "Publish all",
  DEPLOYING: "Deploying...",

 * TODO: Build an integration with the API to get the actual deployment status
export const PublishAllButton = React.forwardRef(() => {
  const [status, setStatus] = React.useState<Status>("LOADING");

  const deployAll = React.useCallback(async () => {
    const res = await fetch(process.env.SANITY_STUDIO_VERCEL_DEPLOY_HOOK, {
      method: "GET",
    const json = await res.json();
    if (json.job.state === "PENDING") {
      setTimeout(() => {
      }, 90000);
  }, []);

  React.useEffect(() => {
  }, []);

  return (
    <Button disabled={status !== "READY"} onClick={() => deployAll()}>
      {labels[status] || "Publish all"}

export default PublishAllButton;

type Status = "LOADING" | "READY" | "DEPLOYING";

import { IoIosWarning } from "react-icons/io";
import PublishAllButton from "../../src/components/PublishAllButton";

export default {
  name: 'dangerZone',
  title: 'Danger Zone',
  type: 'document',
  icon: IoIosWarning,
  fields: [
      name: 'title',
      title: 'Title',
      type: 'string',
      hidden: true,
      initialValue: 'Danger Zone'
      name: 'publishAll',
      title: 'Publish all documents',
      type: 'string',
      inputComponent: PublishAllButton

The gotcha is that you cannot get the status of the deployment. Therefore it just has a timer a little longer than the average deployment.

Also note that environment variable that you want the studio to be able to access need to be prefixed with

Thanks for the replies! I'll install the plugin and have a look, originally I was looking for something more simple than the plugin, this is for the end-users, so the less info the better 🙂
