Introducing: Discord chat notifications

Integrating Buddy with Discord will keep your team updated with automatic notifications on finished builds and deployments to a Discord channel. From now on you can send messages with a predefined action! 😊

  3. When done, click Add this action

The default message uses environment variables with the most important details about the deployment: [#$BUDDY_EXECUTION_ID] $BUDDY_PIPELINE_NAME by $BUDDY_INVOKER_NAME

From now on, Buddy will send a message after every pipeline execution. You can learn more about automating delivery for your type of application in our documentation.
