# pulumi-deployments
Hi. I apologise up front if this is an oft-asked question but I can't seem to find an answer. How do I get the Deploy button to appear in the Console? I'd like to try out the functionality but I don't see the Deploy button in the console, and from the announcement it looks like Deployments is out of the closed-preview phase. My code lives in BitBucket rather than GitHub; however, from the Docs (and from what I've seen from Searching) it appears that GitHub is an option rather than a requirement. Is that right? If you can use Deployments without GitHub, is there something special I need to do in order to enable it? Thanks in advance.
I wasn’t able to get the deploy button to appear but I was able to use their REST API without any issues. You should be able to test it out by following the docs here: https://www.pulumi.com/docs/reference/deployments-rest-api/
Ah ok, that's good to know that the API works even if the button doesn't appear. I'll give that a try. I should be ok but if I do run into problems then I'll be sure to take you up on your very kind offer of help. Thanks!
Hi @limited-account-35949 — the GH app is required to use Click-to-deploy in the console, but this is not made very clear in the docs. I’ll make sure we update these to reflect this more obvious. As Hilmar said, the REST API is the way to go for now if you are using a VCS host other than GitHub
Ah ok, thanks for the clarification. I had a play with the REST API and that worked fine, and then I gave the "remote" support in the Automation API and that worked fine as well and will probably stick with that.
