## Pipeline status in merge requests
If you've set up [GitLab CI/CD](../../../ci/ in your project,
you will be able to see:
- Both pre and post-merge pipelines and the environment information if any.
- Which deployments are in progress.
If there's an [environment](../../../ci/ and the application is
successfully deployed to it, the deployed environment and the link to the
Review App will be shown as well.

will return a `404` error until done. During the deployment, the stop button will
be disabled. If the pipeline fails to deploy, the deployment info will be hidden.
