Historically, deployment result e-mails (deployment succeeded or failed) were always sent to the owners of an application, namely the user themselves or the organisation's members.

This changes today.

You will now find a Notifications tab in your personal space and organisations. Our CLI tool, clever-tools, also gained two commands: notify-email and webhooks.

This will allow you to disable the default deployment e-mails but also to set up more e-mail notifications and, of course, webhooks!

What's a Webhook though?

Here is what Wikipedia has to say:

A webhook in web development is a method of augmenting or altering the behavior of a web page, or web application, with custom callbacks. These callbacks may be maintained, modified, and managed by third-party users and developers who may not necessarily be affiliated with the originating website or application.

In practical terms, this means that you can choose to receive notifications corresponding to events happening on Clever Cloud in a specific format, directly to the application of your choice.

For example, you can choose to receive the deployment results of your applications in a Slack channel!

Neat! How do you do that?

You're in luck, it's explained in our documentation. You can do it via the dashboard or via the CLI.


Coming soon

Aside from more e-mail notifications and more events handled, we also intend to add a way to define notifications targeting every member of an organisation except some users (right now, you have to define the full list of people) as well as a way to edit an existing hook in the dashboard.
