Monitor your CI/CD build status for your PHP application

Monitor your CI/CD build status for your PHP application

In software development, Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) are two important concepts commonly used to ensure that your PHP software is always in a working state. CI/CD is a software development practice where developers continuously integrate code into a shared repository and deliver the code to the end users. This way, the software is always working, and the end users can always use the latest version.

When using CI/CD for your PHP application, it is crucial to monitor the build status of your application to ensure that the latest version of the application is always in a working state. This way, you can always be aware of the status of your application and take immediate action if needed. For example, if the build status is failing, you can take action to fix the issue and ensure that the latest version of the application is always in a working state.

LogSnag is a powerful, real-time event tracking tool that is an excellent solution for monitoring the build status of your PHP application. By using LogSnag directly in your CI/CD pipeline, such as Github Actions, or by using it inside your PHP application, you can track the build status of your application in real time. You may also set up optional rules to notify you and your team when the build status of your application changes.

In addition, LogSnag allows for tracking your CI/CD build status over time and creating a timeline of events for each build. This way, you can always review the build history of your application and take action if needed.


Setting up LogSnag

  1. Sign up for a free LogSnag account.
  2. Create your first project from the dashboard.
  3. Head to settings and copy your API token.

PHP code snippets

Use the following code snippet to track the build status of your application in real time. All you need to do is to replace the YOUR_API_TOKEN with your LogSnag API token and update the project name to your project name.

Using PHP with cURL
<?php

$curl = curl_init();

curl_setopt_array($curl, array(
  CURLOPT_URL => 'https://api.logsnag.com/v1/log',
  CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER => true,
  CURLOPT_ENCODING => '',
  CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS => 10,
  CURLOPT_TIMEOUT => 0,
  CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION => true,
  CURLOPT_HTTP_VERSION => CURL_HTTP_VERSION_1_1,
  CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST => 'POST',
  CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS =>'{"project":"my-saas","channel":"ci-cd","event":"Successful Deploy","description":"Project was successfully deployed to production","icon":"🚢","notify":true}',
  CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER => array(
    'Content-Type: application/json',
    'Authorization: Bearer YOUR_API_TOKEN'
  ),
));

$response = curl_exec($curl);

curl_close($curl);
echo $response;
Using PHP with Guzzle
<?php
$client = new Client();
$headers = [
  'Content-Type' => 'application/json',
  'Authorization' => 'Bearer YOUR_API_TOKEN'
];
$body = '{
  "project": "my-saas",
  "channel": "ci-cd",
  "event": "Successful Deploy",
  "description": "Project was successfully deployed to production",
  "icon": "🚢",
  "notify": true
}';
$request = new Request('POST', 'https://api.logsnag.com/v1/log', $headers, $body);
$res = $client->sendAsync($request)->wait();
echo $res->getBody();
Using PHP with HTTP_Request2
<?php
require_once 'HTTP/Request2.php';
$request = new HTTP_Request2();
$request->setUrl('https://api.logsnag.com/v1/log');
$request->setMethod(HTTP_Request2::METHOD_POST);
$request->setConfig(array(
  'follow_redirects' => TRUE
));
$request->setHeader(array(
  'Content-Type' => 'application/json',
  'Authorization' => 'Bearer YOUR_API_TOKEN'
));
$request->setBody('{"project":"my-saas","channel":"ci-cd","event":"Successful Deploy","description":"Project was successfully deployed to production","icon":"🚢","notify":true}');
try {
  $response = $request->send();
  if ($response->getStatus() == 200) {
    echo $response->getBody();
  }
  else {
    echo 'Unexpected HTTP status: ' . $response->getStatus() . ' ' .
    $response->getReasonPhrase();
  }
}
catch(HTTP_Request2_Exception $e) {
  echo 'Error: ' . $e->getMessage();
}
Using PHP with pecl_http
<?php
$client = new http\Client;
$request = new http\Client\Request;
$request->setRequestUrl('https://api.logsnag.com/v1/log');
$request->setRequestMethod('POST');
$body = new http\Message\Body;
$body->append('{"project":"my-saas","channel":"ci-cd","event":"Successful Deploy","description":"Project was successfully deployed to production","icon":"🚢","notify":true}');
$request->setBody($body);
$request->setOptions(array());
$request->setHeaders(array(
  'Content-Type' => 'application/json',
  'Authorization' => 'Bearer YOUR_API_TOKEN'
));
$client->enqueue($request)->send();
$response = $client->getResponse();
echo $response->getBody();
