In GitLab: Create a Squadcast Webhook

You can configure a Webhook for a group or a project.

(1) In your project or group, on the left sidebar, select Settings > Webhooks

(2) In the placeholder for URL, paste the previously copied Webhook from Squadcast

(3) In the Trigger section, select the below events to trigger the Webhook. Then, select Add webhook

  • Issues
  • Pushes
  • Merge Requests
  • Releases

That is it, you are good to go!

Everytime an Issue, Push, Merge Request or a Release event occurs in GitLab, an incident would be created for it in Squadcast. When an Issue or a Merge Request is closed/merged in GitLab, the corresponding incident in Squadcast will be automatically resolved. For Pushes and Releases, the associated incidents must be manually resolved in Squadcast.
