Allow DirectDeploy for preproduction and production Merged

Please enable the DirectDeploy option for preproduction and production environments. Currently it is only available for integration. I understand that the goal is for preproduction to mirror production as closely as possible and for both environments to have very robust validation procedures, but there are certain scenarios where a direct deployment to those environments would be beneficial. For example, we recently had a production deployment which required some additional stylesheet changes that were only discovered after the release to production was complete. In this type of scenario, there is no need to create a new slot for the deployment. Allowing the direct deployment option for all environments would give us the power to better manage releases.

    I too think this would be a very good option because of how long deployments can take. While in a perfect world every deployment to preprod and prod goes off without a hitch, the reality is that there is always potential for something to go wrong. We recently had an issue where a deployment caused a major issue on production to the point that there was an error on the site. Having the ability to do a direct deploy would have allowed us to get the site back up and running very quickly, rather than having to wait almost 45 minutes for a full deployment to be executed.
