Key technologies

If you wish to install it on your own infrastructure:

The .war should work fine on any Java EE web server. It is not bound by any server-specific property file or other things like that. Once deployed, it exposes the endpoint POST /api/notifications which accepts a JsonArray of format:


As it is clear, a pipeline between Github Notifications API and this endpoint is needed. You can setup one of your own (respecting the above mentioned interface) or use this ejb .jar. You can also set a webhook (do not forget to modify the endpoint so that it points to your domain).

You will need to set the following system properties. Pay a lot of attention while configuring these, since everything relies on them.

LOG_ROOT string Optional. Place where the log files will be stored. Defaults to . (dot) **domain**/**charles-rest-context-root**/api/logs Mantadory. Rest endpoint from charles-rest
that returns the log of an action.
github.auth.token string Mantadory. Github agent's access token. Must be the same as for the EJB checker
