Circle CI

How to use Circle CI with Flood

To have Tricentis Flood automatically repeat a test when a build is completed, you need to create a webhook using the Flood API. You can repeat existing flood tests with the following endpoint:

POST api.flood.io/floods/:flood_id/webhook

Webhooks allow external services to be notified when certain events happen on Circle CI. When the specified events happen, Circle CI will send a POST request to each of the URLs you provide. You can configure these notifications in your circle.yml

notify:
webhooks:
# A list of hook hashes, containing the url field
- url: https://api.flood.io/floods/K9MHO2UsoSuRKmkjIGMZqg/webhook

Parameters

  • region optional target region to launch the test in

  • grid optional use a specific grid UUID to launch the test in instead of a region

If a grid region or uuid is not specified then the flood test will be repeated on all available grids for your account.

Example

curl --silent -X POST https://api.flood.io/floods/K9MHO2UsoSuRKmkjIGMZqg/webhook

SECURITY

This webhook allows third party services to repeat a specific test, and allows anybody who has it to run a test against your server. If you think your webhook has been compromised you should delete the corresponding flood test from your account to prevent further use of that token.
