CircleCI, a leading continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) platform, is releasing CircleCI webhooks, a feature that provides software engineering teams the ability to build integrations that react to CircleCI job and workflow status notifications.
The availability of CircleCI webhooks provides the opportunity to streamline developer workflow and increase engineering velocity that ultimately drives business success.
“As teams continue to increase the release frequency of complex apps and services, observable CI/CD pipelines are more critical than ever. With CircleCI webhooks, developers can build high quality, customizable experiences across their CI/CD, analytics, monitoring, incident management and other applications to enable better informed software decisions,” said Apurva Joshi, chief product officer, CircleCI.
As part of this release, CircleCI will be one of the first CI/CD platforms to integrate with Datadog, Inc.’s new CI Visibility tool to visualize key CircleCI metrics, like the number of failed builds or the average build time, for Datadog users.
“Maximizing developer time and productivity has never been more important,” said Borja Burgos, director of product, Datadog. “Thanks to CircleCI webhooks we’ve been able to build a new integration in Datadog to deliver extraordinary levels of visibility and insights into CI. This integration will provide great value to our customers and strengthen our ties with CircleCI’s community.”
Datadog consolidates metrics, traces, logs, and more, to help organizations scale their cloud environments, troubleshoot potential issues, and provide their customers with excellent digital experiences. Using CircleCI webhooks will surface analytic data to Datadog users to make more informed decisions when an event in their pipeline occurs, according to the vendor.
Additionally, the CircleCI and Sumo Logic integration via webhooks collects events from CircleCI such as workflow and job completed status, advancing teams to better track the performance and health of continuous integration and deployment pipelines.Users can utilize CircleCI’s webhooks to:
- Increase developer productivity and efficiency: Developers and teams can build their own automation systems using real-time notifications of their continuous integration workflows and jobs across toolkits.
- Make better-informed decisions: Visualize and analyze job and workflow events when they occur, or inform incident management tools of pipeline updates.
- Trigger real-time notifications: Create customized notification systems to alert when a job completes, or ping incident response tools to alert of incidents to help improve workflow and response.
