There are a number of third party services you can use with Buildkite webhooks. Some services (such as RequestBin, APITools and Zapier) are designed specifically with webhooks in mind, and others (such as AWS Lambda, Google Cloud Functions, IronWorker and Webtask) are general purpose programming platforms which can be triggered with webhook HTTP requests.
To get started go to http://requestb.in and create a new bin:
Copy the bin’s URL and add it in a new Buildkite webhook notification. Once you've saved the notification settings we’ll send it a Ping event. Simply reload your RequestBin page to inspect the
ping webhook request.
Google Cloud Functions
Iron.io’s IronWorker is a service for hosted code execution using Docker containers. You can follow their webhook worker documentation and sample code for an example of how to create an endpoint to use with Buildkite webhooks.
APItools is a tool for ingesting and manipulating API requests. You can use it as a webhook receiver, write LUA middleware for triggering behavior on incoming webhooks. See this gist for a complete example of using APItools middleware to control the LIFX API based on Buildkite webhooks.
Zapier is a system for connecting APIs together, and has built in support for hundreds of services. For example, you could use Zapier to send an email when a build has finished, save a build artifact into a Dropbox folder, or post to a Slack room substituting values such as the build URL and number into the message body.
To use Buildkite webhooks with Zapier create a new Zap and select Webhook.
Webtask makes it easy to write Node.js powered backend code without having to run a server, and it supports cron (scheduled runs) and secure token storage (for things like API keys). You can use our LIFX webtask example to get started with processing webhooks using Webtask:
