Configuring notifications

This page describes how to configure piped to send notifications to external services.

PipeCD events (deployment triggered, planned, completed, analysis result, piped started…) can be sent to external services like Slack or a Webhook service. While forwarding those events to a chat service helps developers have a quick and convenient way to know the deployment’s current status, forwarding to a Webhook service may be useful for triggering other related tasks like CI jobs.

PipeCD events are emitted and sent by the piped component. So all the needed configurations can be specified in the piped configuration file. Notification configuration including:

  • a list of Routes which used to match events and decide where the event should be sent to
  • a list of Receivers which used to know how to send events to the external service

Notification Route matches events based on their metadata like name, group, app, labels. Below is the list of supporting event names and their groups.
