Deploy Hooks

Errbit can track your application deploys if you send a special message to Errbit whenever you deploy.

From heroku

If you’re using heroku, you can add a deploy hook like this:

$ heroku addons:add deployhooks:http \

From the airbrake gem using the rake task

The airbrake gem comes with a nice rake task for sending deploy hooks. Assuming you already have it configured, you can send hooks like this:

$ TO=env-name \
  REVISION=rev-string \
  REPO=repo-string \
  USER=user-string \
  rake airbrake:deploy

From the airbrake gem using capistrano 3

In your application’s Capfile, insert:

require 'airbrake/capistrano3'

This will add a new capistrano task named airbrake:deploy which ends up calling rake airbrake:deploy with the values from your capistrano config. You may need to set the API_KEY environment variable on the target application.

From curl

Errbit supports sending a message along with your deploy hook. The airbrake gem doesn’t support this, but you can easily send it along yourself. Here’s an example using cURL:

$ curl \
  --data "api_key=406e4374bf508ad0d7732c2d35ed380d" \
  --data "app_id=cb71ca8429732ba86b90d57c" \
  --data "deploy[local_username]=user-string" \
  --data "deploy[rails_env]=env-name" \
  --data "deploy[scm_repository]=repo-string" \
  --data "deploy[scm_revision]=rev-string" \
  --data "deploy[message]=my-message"
