CircleCI is a continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) platform that helps in implementing DevOps practices. It is used to build, test, and deploy projects, by automating pipelines with jobs.
If you use CircleCI for implementing your DevOps practices, you can now integrate it with Squadcast to route detailed alerts to the right users in Squadcast. The below steps will help you set up CircleCI and Squadcast integration.
Step1: In Squadcast, navigate to Services, go to Service Overview and select or search for your Service. Next, expand the accordion and in the Alert Sources section, click on Add.
Step2: Select CircleCI and copy the displayed Webhook URL to configure it within CircleCI. Finish by clicking Add Alert Source and finally click on Done.
Please Note: When an alert source turns Active, it’ll show up under Configured Alert Sources, you can either generate a test alert from the integration or wait for a real-time alert to be generated by the Alert Source. An Alert Source is active if there is a recorded incident via that Alert Source for the Service.
Step1: Login to your CircleCI dashboard. Navigate to the Projects section, click on the ‘...’ and select Project Settings.
Step2: Under the Project Settings, navigate to the Webhooks section. Then click on Add Webhook.
Step3: Enter the Webhook name and paste the previously copied Squadcast Webhook URL in the Receiver URL placeholder. Check the checkbox for both the Events - Workflow Completed & Job Completed.
That's it! You have successfully integrated CircleCI with Squadcast. Whenever CircleCI fires an alert, an incident will be created in Squadcast for it. Once the Success alert is sent, it will automatically be resolved in Squadcast.
CircleCI is a widely used CI/CD tool, and numerous organizations rely on it for their DevOps implementation needs. Integrating it with Squadcast can help your organization route detailed alerts and enhance your incident response process.
