Integrations 0.5 Release Notes

Release date: November 20, 2017

Welcome to the first stable release of the Review Board Integrations extension. This adds a handful of third-party integrations to Review Board. It’s maintained independently of Review Board, allowing us to supply fixes and features without requiring an upgrade of Review Board itself.

Review Board 3.0 is required for the integrations 0.5.x releases.

CircleCI Integration

CircleCI is a popular continuous integration service used to automatically build software and run tests to ensure code quality and repeated testing.

Our integration requires CircleCI 2.0, and only works with repositories hosted on GitHub or Bitbucket. You will need to make manual changes to the .circleci/config.yml in the repository.

Slack Integration

Slack is a popular team communication service used by companies of all sizes. Our Slack integration can be configured to communicate with one or more Slack channels, as well as customize what event notifications are sent.

Travis CI Integration

Travis CI is a continuous integration service used by both open source products and companies. It only works with GitHub repositories.

Configuration works a bit differently from CircleCI. Due to current restrictions when working with Travis CI’s API, all builds will show up in the main “Branches” view, which won’t differentiate between builds from commits and builds from Review Board. In order to avoid polluting this for a production Travis CI project, we recommend creating a branch used solely for review requests (such as review-requests/master or review-requests/1.0.x) on the GitHub repository and set that branch in the Travis CI integration configuration.

The integration will use a custom version of the existing Travis CI configuration for your repository when performing a build. It will update the script section to fetch the patch from Review Board, and will update the notifications section to enable a WebHook for notifying Review Board about the status of the build. It will also add special environment variables used as part of the notification process.
