Since: v1.3.

Webhooks are a way to receive notifications. With this Goreleaser functionality, you can send events to any server exposing a webhook.

If your endpoints are not secure, you can use following environment variables to configure them:

  • BASIC_AUTH_HEADER_VALUE like Basic <base64(username:password)>
  • BEARER_TOKEN_HEADER_VALUE like Bearer <token>

Add following to your .goreleaser.yaml config to enable the webhook functionality:

# .goreleaser.yaml
    # Whether its enabled or not.
    # Defaults to false.
    enabled: true

    # Check the certificate of the webhook. Defaults to false.
    skip_tls_verify: true

    # Message template to use while publishing.
    # Defaults to `{{ .ProjectName }} {{ .Tag }} is out! Check it out at {{ .ReleaseURL }}`
    message_template: '{ "title": "Awesome project {{.Tag}} is out!"}'

    # Content type to use.
    # Defaults to `"application/json; charset=utf-8"`
    content_type: "application/json"

    # Endpoint to send the webhook to.
    endpoint_url: ""
    # Headers to send with the webhook.
    # For example:
    # headers:
    #   Authorization: "Bearer <token>"
      User-Agent: "goreleaser"
