New add-ons for Sentry, StatusPage, and Bitbucket are perfect for teams operating under a continuous delivery model. Not only will you get real-time information about pull requests, crashes, and page status’, but you’ll also be able to quickly take action right from HipChat. That means a faster, more seamless continuous delivery model.
Respond to errors faster
When there are errors or crashes on your service, your team needs to know the moment it happens. The crash-reporting service, Sentry, has created a HipChat add-on that allows your entire team to see outstanding issues and immediately take action in HipChat.
This is no typical integration. It has tons of information available to you as well as the ability to take important actions. When there is an error on your service, you’ll get a notification in your HipChat room.
Sentry helps our team identify bugs. We see the error, discuss the issue, and prioritize it – all in real-time. For example, Sentry is letting us know that our code is referencing an object that no longer exists:
We can then easily expand the notification by clicking the down arrow in the top right corner. This gives us even more context for the errors so we can quickly get an idea of what is happening.
Oh, but there is more. We can click the three dots to the right of the notification and either get more details or assign the ticket to one of our teammates.
In the sidebar, we get a whole report of information about what happened and what we need to do next.
What’s your status?
The new StatusPage add-on assures that your team is aware of an incident reports on your service.
In the sidebar, you’ll be able to see if your page is operational or has errors.
Keeping your team aware and informed is key to resolving issues quickly and skillfully. Putting this StatusPage add-on right in your HipChat rooms accomplishes just that.
Continuously deliver in HipChat
For a DevOps team, roadblocks are costly. One blocker could delay shipping important features and updates that your users need. To keep your team moving at the speed of agile, you need to set up processes that ensure no one is blocked.
The new Bitbucket add-on not only brings in pull request information but also allows you to “Poke Reviewers” to give them a reminder to review your pull requests.
This way you can bulldoze through any roadblocks and get on your continuous delivery way.
Sentry, StatusPage, and Bitbucket are essentials in the DevOps toolbelt. With these new add-ons you’ll be building faster and getting ship done. Try ’em out and let us know what you think below! Your insights help pave the road for next generation of HipChat.
