Overview

Today, we officially released our beta integration with CircleCI. With this launch comes the Source connector, as well as a suite of API action templates.

As with any Buildable integration, teams can now connect their CircleCI account, subscribe to a wide array of events and attach those events as workflow triggers in the Buildable developer dashboard.

They can also embed CircleCI API actions within their existing and newly created workflows. Developer productivity has never been more in reach!

Extracting CircleCI events

Streaming events is easy. Simply add the new CircleCI Source in your Buildable developer dashboard, connect your account and subscribe to the events you’re looking to connect.

Once you’re done, you can check the status of your Connection using the green light indicator. Green means you’re connected and all set to build. Red means there was an error in the connection.

Once successfully connected, you’re actively collecting events. You can validate events are being collected properly using your event stream, which shows events from your connected sources in real-time.

Using CircleCI actions

When you connect CircleCI with Buildable, you can pick from over 50 ready-to-use action templates to complete your workflow. Some of our most popular templates include:

  • Create a schedule
  • Create a new context
  • Get job details
  • Get a project
  • Get all schedules
  • Cancel a workflow
  • Update a schedule

Common CircleCI Workflows

1. Notify team channels in Slack about build status

DevOps teams responsible for monitoring your application's uptime need to be notified in real-time about the status of a CI/CD pipeline build. In cases where the build fails, they get an instant notification in the appropriate Slack channel and can fix this error quickly.

2. Record and visualize builds on spreadsheet databases like Airtable

Tools like Airtable help you record and visualize your data in a way that makes sense to your team and provide valuable information. For example, you can use Airtable apps, like the Vega-Lite chart app, to create data visualization widgets, bar charts and histograms, among others, to give a detailed visualization of your build.

3. Send information to incident management tools like PagerDuty

With a workflow like this, on-call teams can directly automate tasks like alerting, logging build information, and automatically invoking build diagnostics into PagerDuty.

Do more with CircleCI Integration

Buildable lets you connect CircleCI to some of your most popular apps, so you can automate your engineering workflow and increase developer productivity.
