Buddy offers a dedicated set of actions allowing you to send deployment details to your favorite monitoring service. One of the most popular tools is Datadog, now complemented with an individual action which updates the service with the status of the build after the execution.
Ghost Inspector is a tool for an automated testing and monitoring of your website or application. Ghost Inspector runs the tests in a browser to mimic the user experience and ensure that everything is running as it should.
The ‘Pass arguments’ action in Buddy lets you ask about parameters during pipeline execution. The parameters are available in consecutive actions as environment variables. This way you can change the behavior of a pipeline while an execution is in progress.
