The CircleCI Integration for Signals allows users to create events in FireHydrant from webhooks configured in CircleCI. Anytime that CircleCI sends an event to FireHydrant, we’ll evaluate the signal to see if if matches a rule setup by one of your teams. If it matches that rule, we’ll alert the team. Learn more about Alert Rules here.

Configuring CircleCI Webhook

  1. In FireHydrant, navigate to the Signals Sources page (Signals > Sources). Here, you’ll find a webhook URL that you will use when creating a webhook in CircleCI

  2. In CircleCI, navigate to a project's settings page. In the left navigation, find the webhooks option. On the webhooks page, click Add Webhook.

  3. Add the URL from step 1 to your webhook.

  4. Select the events that you want to trigger Signals in FireHydrant.

  5. Click “Add” to save your webhook.

You can learn more about CircleCI webhooks by reading their Webhooks documentation.

Testing your CircleCI Webhook

  1. When editing your webhook, click "Test Ping Event" to send a sample payload to FireHydrant.
  2. Confirm that FireHydrant received your webhook by visiting Alerting > Webhook Logs in the web app. You should see a new Signal created. You can open the drawer to see the full payload from CircleCI.
