9.1. Creating notifications

Use the following procedure to add notifications.

Prerequisites

  • You have created a repository.
  • You have administrative privileges for the repository.

Procedure

Navigate to a repository on Red Hat Quay.

  2. In the Events and Notifications category, click Create Notification to add a new notification for a repository event. You are redirected to a Create repository notification page.
  3. On the Create repository notification page, select the drop-down menu to reveal a list of events. You can select a notification for the following types of events:

    • Push to Repository
    • Dockerfile Build Queued
    • Dockerfile Build Started
    • Dockerfile Build Successfully Completed
    • Docker Build Cancelled
    • Package Vulnerability Found
  4. After you have selected the event type, select the notification method. The following methods are supported:

    • Quay Notification
    • E-mail
    • Webhook POST
    • Flowdock Team Notification
    • HipChat Room Notification
    • Slack Room Notification

      Depending on the method that you choose, you must include additional information. For example, if you select E-mail, you are required to include an e-mail address and an optional notification title.

  5. After selecting an event and notification method, click Create Notification.

9.3. Notification actions

9.3.1. Notifications added

Notifications are added to the Events and Notifications section of the Repository Settings page. They are also added to the Notifications window, which can be found by clicking the bell icon in the navigation pane of Red Hat Quay.

Red Hat Quay notifications can be setup to be sent to a User, Team, or the organization as a whole.

9.3.2. E-mail notifications

E-mails are sent to specified addresses that describe the specified event. E-mail addresses must be verified on a per-repository basis.

9.3.3. Webhook POST notifications

An HTTP POST call is made to the specified URL with the event’s data. For more information about event data, see "Repository events description".

When the URL is HTTPS, the call has an SSL client certificate set from Red Hat Quay. Verification of this certificate proves that the call originated from Red Hat Quay. Responses with the status code in the 2xx range are considered successful. Responses with any other status code are considered failures and result in a retry of the webhook notification.

9.3.4. Flowdock notifications

Posts a message to Flowdock.

9.3.5. Hipchat notifications

Posts a message to HipChat.

9.3.6. Slack notifications
