Add a GitHub webhook

A webhook notifies buddybuild of code changes that you make to your repo. Whenever a new change is pushed, buddybuild automatically kicks off a new build — ensuring that you have up-to-date build status and your testers have the very latest builds.

Let’s get started!

On the Builds page, in the red banner at the top of the page, click on Resolve this issue.

In the dialog box that appears, select and copy the webhook URL. This URL is specific to your app and will be used to identify your app when sending webhooks from GitHub.

Navigate to your GitHub repository. In the right panel, select Settings.
