The Blink TeamCity app will generate updates to a conversation when TeamCity is building projects.
It works using webhooks (what is a webhook?)
Getting TeamCity set up is therefore very straightforward. You invite the Blink TeamCity app to a conversation on Blink, ask it to generate you a webhook URL, and then supply that to your TeamCity instance.
Setting up your TeamCity
Follow these instructions to install the tcWebHooks plugin onto your TeamCity instance.
Get your webhook
Open a conversation with the Blink TeamCity app. If the app is not in your contacts, head over into your Blink Launchpad and add it to your collection. Then open a conversation with it, or add it to one of your group chats.
When you start a new conversation with the app it will display a help card from which you can generate a webhook URL for that conversation. Press the button to do that, then copy it to your clipboard.
TIP if you need to re-generate that card for any reason, just say @teamcity help and it will show you how.
Give the URL to TeamCity
- Login to your TeamCity and select a project.
- Select the WebHooks Tab (made available by the tcWebHooks plugin).
- Choose to add the webhook for every TeamCity build or a Webhook just for this project.
- Create the webhook by adding the URL to the URL field and ensure that JSON payload format is selected.
You should now start receiving notifications in Blink for TeamCity builds.
