Webhooks

Note: Starting from GitLab 8.5:

Project webhooks allow you to trigger a URL if for example new code is pushed or a new issue is created. You can configure webhooks to listen for specific events like pushes, issues or merge requests. GitLab will send a POST request with data to the webhook URL.

Webhooks can be used to update an external issue tracker, trigger CI builds, update a backup mirror, or even deploy to your production server.

Navigate to the webhooks page by choosing Webhooks from your project's settings which can be found under the wheel icon in the upper right corner.

Webhook endpoint tips

If you are writing your own endpoint (web server) that will receive GitLab webhooks keep in mind the following things:

Secret token

If you specify a secret token, it will be sent with the hook request in the X-Gitlab-Token HTTP header. Your webhook endpoint can check that to verify that the request is legitimate.

SSL verification

By default, the SSL certificate of the webhook endpoint is verified based on an internal list of Certificate Authorities, which means the certificate cannot be self-signed.

You can turn this off in the webhook settings in your GitLab projects.

SSL Verification

Example webhook receiver

If you want to see GitLab's webhooks in action for testing purposes you can use a simple echo script running in a console session. For the following script to work you need to have Ruby installed.

Save the following file as print_http_body.rb:

require 'webrick'

server = WEBrick::HTTPServer.new(:Port => ARGV.first)
server.mount_proc '/' do |req, res|
  puts req.body
end

trap 'INT' do
  server.shutdown
end
server.start

Pick an unused port (e.g. 8000) and start the script: ruby print_http_body.rb 8000. Then add your server as a webhook receiver in GitLab as http://my.host:8000/.

When you press 'Test Hook' in GitLab, you should see something like this in the console:
