External Hook URL

If you would like to use a third-party service (like pushover.net with Bugify, we’ve just made it easier. In fact, if there is any external service/script/tool that you’d like to run whenever changes are made to your tickets, now you can.

Introducing “External Hook URL”!

With this feature, Bugify can make a POST request to a URL of your choice whenever a change is made to an issue (e.g., new issue added, updated issue details, added comment etc). The POST request includes a single parameter named payload which contains a json encoded array of issue details – including the full issue details, and the history item that includes the change(s) just made.

This adds a whole new level of power to Bugify, and makes integrating with your favourite services even easier.
