Sometimes builds need to do things which depend on deeper details hidden within a webhook which has triggered a build. For example:
- Switch to a different repository before checkout, for multi-repo workflows
- Look at the changed files in a push event for monorepo builds
- See the specific GitHub user who pushed a branch versus the commit author
It’s be great to have a command like
buldkite-agent webhook get which returned the full webhook body which triggered a build available within a command step.
