Web hooks

David Ebbo edited this page · 17 revisions

Scenario: an external component wants to know when deployments are complete. It registers a callback url that will be called each time a deployment has finished, with the deployment information on whether the deployment was successful or not, the author, commit id and more.

Possible use case: With this feature you're able to hook a kudu site as a trigger in web services such as zapier.com which allows you to do a wide array of actions when a deployment is done, for example:

  • Send an email when deployment is done
  • Call when a deployment has failed
  • Tweet when a deployment has succeeded
  • And more...
