We’d like the webhook notifications API to trigger when the build starts and for each step as it runs.
We use scripts that run within each build step to report to a service that tracks the current build status, the service is open source and can be found here: https://github.com/barsoom/pipeline. That in turn provides data we display on our developer dashboards.
What I would like to do is to add support for the CircleCI webhook notification API to pipeline so that we would not need the scripts and so that the build reporting could be more reliable.
The problem though is that the webhook API currently only triggers when the build is finished. Would it be possible to have it trigger when the build starts and for each build step as it starts? Maybe as a configuration option for those that need it?
If you want this too, please like this post!
