Specified persons only can approve the workflow

When we have a deploy job to production, we need only Managers to approve the workflow. Currently anybody following the project can approve the workflow. Better still can you trigger a email with the approval link?

    The first feature that will allow something like this will be the ability to protect contexts to be executed only by certain people in a group -- this will locate the restriction on the downstream job rather than the approval itself, however, so we may also provide approval-level restrictions later.

    That is good enough for our use case, thanks for the info, and looking forward to it.

    I am also looking forwards to this feature. We want to allow only a group of user to approve a job in workflow before the next job of deploying to production.

    The holds feature is nice. I don't think we have a use case as is. If we can limit who can approve the holds we will start using it as soon as it is available.

    We can't use CD on CircleCI until something like this is implemented. Restricting to users named in the contect or an option to restrict approval to github repo admins would either be OK. But we have new developers and we have consultants who have write access to the repo, so we need to be able to have production deploy trigger restricted.

    We are currently testing this feature internally. I will update this thread when we are ready to roll it out. Thank you so much for your patience.
