SCM Web Hooks

Create a project

$ oc new-project scm-web-hooks --display-name="Test WebHooks"

Create new application

$ oc new-app -S --image-stream=php
Image streams (oc new-app --image-stream=<image-stream> [--code=<source>])
  Project: openshift
  Tags:    5.6, 7.0, latest

$ oc new-app --image-stream=php --code= --name=scm-web-hooks
--> Found image 79f7d44 (8 weeks old) in image stream "openshift/php" under tag "7.0" for "php"

    Apache 2.4 with PHP 7.0
    Platform for building and running PHP 7.0 applications

    Tags: builder, php, php70, rh-php70

    * The source repository appears to match: php
    * A source build using source code from will be created
      * The resulting image will be pushed to image stream "scm-web-hooks:latest"
      * Use 'start-build' to trigger a new build
    * This image will be deployed in deployment config "scm-web-hooks"
    * Port 8080/tcp will be load balanced by service "scm-web-hooks"

$ oc get dc
  • Show created service

$ oc get service
  • Show replication controller

$ oc get rc
  • Show route

$ oc get route

Notice that there is no route created yet for this application.

  • Show the builds in progress (Running)

$ oc get builds

Test the application

Use to access the app, you should see


Navigate to the OpenShift Web console and login.

  • Navigate to the OpenShift Web console and login.

  • Select your Test WebHooks project, and click Builds and then Builds.

  • Click onto the build name from the list. You should have just one in this case.

  • Click Configuration tab to get list of Triggers for the GitHub link.

  • Copy the GitHub webhook URL. You will need this URL for next step.


Configure GitHub repository Web Hook

  • Login to your GitHub account.

  • Navigate to the forked repository you used to create the application.

  • Click on Settings.

  • Click on Webhooks.

  • Click on the Add webhook button.

  • Add the recently copied Web Hook URL from OpenShift.

  • Change the Content-type as "application/json"

  • Click on the Disable SSL Verification button.

  • Confirm by adding the Add Webhook button in green at the bottom of the page.

Redeploy the application

  • Edit in your GitHub account the image.php file.

  • One of the lines in line 9 or 10 should be commented out. Make a change so that the line that was previously commented out becomes active and pound the other one.

  • Commit the file.

Monitor new deployment process

  • After saving/committing the image.php file with the small change, you’ll notice in the OpenShift Web Console that a new build process has been automatically triggered. You didn’t have to start a build yourself.

  • Monitor the build process using:

$ oc get builds

$ oc logs builds/scm-web-hooks-2
