Actions environments now makes it more secure to review and control deployments using manual approvals.

Previously, any user could trigger a workflow and also manually approve/reject a deployment job targeting a protected environment, if they are a required reviewer.

We are now introducing an option for environment admins to prevent required reviewers from self-reviews to secure deployments targeting their critical environments.
This would enforce that a different reviewer could approve and sign off the deployments, rather than the same user who triggered the run – making the deployments more secure.
