webhooks access to git repo

I think what you are asking is if UCD can accept something like a repo-trigger where after a commit in Git, those changes are automatically pushed into UCD. Does this sound correct? While I know that we offer Git plugin capabilities https://www.urbancode.com/plugin/git/ and https://www.urbancode.com/plugindoc/git#tab-1-2 , one can clearly see upon creating a new component in UCD that there is a checkbox for "Import Versions Automatically". Hoevering on the tooltip, though, it mentions nothing about webhooks and instead says that it will poll the repository periodically to scan for new changes. This sounds like the communication is the opposite way you are looking for (in another words, it is going UCD > Git instead of Git > UCD);

    I wrote a very simple sample python code as an intermediate between git (github, gitlab, bitbucket, ..) and UCD. You need to provide your environment variables (see readme) and then can check it quite easily.

    That would be an easy workaround for the exisiting webhook problem.

    Another way would be to use the REST interface of UCD directly, here an curl example which will trigger the import for the given component.

    curl -X PUT -k -u PasswordIsAuthToken:xxxx-yyy-dddd-eee-asdasdfsdf -d '{"component": "yourcomponent ", "properties": ""}' https://your-ucd-server:8443/cli/component/integrate

    Osman that was not the intent when e opened this ticket. The problem with existing connectivity between ucd and bitbucket is that it causes constant network traffic which after a while becomes unmanageable. My understanding of webhooks is that instead of ucd polling bitbucket, it waits for bitbucket to have new artifacts via a pull request at which time bitbucket would notify ucd of the pull traffic therefore minimizing the network traffic

    Thank you for providing this IDEA.

    After thourough discussion it has been decided to close this ticket as the exisiting functionality provides automated import (pull) and GitHub provides GitHub Actions (controlled push) to achieve similar functionality.

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.
