Slack, Hipchat and Flowdock notifications for new releases

If you are using release events in Tideways to mark deployments of your application, then you will happy to hear that we have finally created notifications for them. Starting with Slack, Hipchat and Flowdock, you can now get a notification in two cases:

  • The release was just deployed (and a Tideways event was created for it)
  • Around 90 minutes after the release, when a before/after report is compiled.

You can see those events in action for our Slack integration in these screenshots:

To activate release notifications, go to “Application Settings”, then “Configure Notifications” and create a notification rule for “New Release”. You can decide if you want to get the 90 minute later report only if the performance dropped, but by default you will always see it.
