Chapter 12. Repository Notifications

Quay supports adding notifications to a repository for various events that occur in the repository’s lifecycle. To add notifications, click the Settings tab while viewing a repository and select Create Notification. From the When this event occurs field, select the items for which you want to receive notifications:

Create repository notifications

After selecting an event, further configure it by adding how you will be notified of that event.

Note

Adding notifications requires repository admin permission.

The following are examples of repository events.

12.2. Notification Actions

12.2.1. Quay Notification

A notification will be added to the Quay.io notification area. The notification area can be found by clicking on the bell icon in the top right of any Quay.io page.

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

12.2.2. E-mail

An e-mail will be sent to the specified address describing the event that occurred.

Note

All e-mail addresses will have to be verified on a per-repository basis

12.2.3. Webhook POST

An HTTP POST call will be made to the specified URL with the event’s data (see above for each event’s data format).

When the URL is HTTPS, the call will have an SSL client certificate set from Quay.io. Verification of this certificate will prove the call originated from Quay.io. Responses with status codes in the 2xx range are considered successful. Responses with any other status codes will be considered failures and result in a retry of the webhook notification.
