Overview of Extensibility

Starting with version 1.12, HgLab offers integrations with JIRA, Slack and TeamCity.

Stay tuned for new Extensions, as well as for for more features in existing ones.

Extensions are currently global; no per-Project or per-Repository configuration just yet.

The JIRA Integration Extension does the linking by analyzing branch names and commit messages, extracting fragments of text matching JIRA Issue Key Regex and then creating a Remote Issue Link using REST API endpoint of JIRA Software installed at JIRA Url.

JIRA Issue Keys can usually be matched using this regular expression: ([A-Z]{2,10}-\d+).

Slack Integration

When enabled, this Extension posts messages to a Slack channel whenever commits are pushed to HgLab.

This is what it looks like in Slack:

Slack Notifications on Pushes to HgLab

Setting up Slack Integration is a two-step process. First, Slack has to be configured appropriately. Start by adding an Incoming Webhook Integration to your Slack team. Pick a channel where messages will be posted and create the Incoming Webhook. Note the Webhook URL and then proceed to configuring HgLab.

Remember that Slack Integration is configured globally, which means that notifications about pushes to all repositories will end up in the Slack channel.
