Create deployments from Bitbucket Pipelines

Pipelines uses scripts, embedded in YAML-files, to configure the different steps required to build and deploy software. To notify elmah.io as part of a build/deployment, the first you will need to do, is to add your API key as a secure environment variable. To do so, go to Settings | Pipelines | Environment variables and add a new variable:

Add environment variable

Where is my API key?

Then add a new script to your build YAML-file after building and deploying your software:

pipelines:
  default:
    - step:
        script:
          # ...
          - curl -X POST -d "{\"version\":\"$BITBUCKET_BUILD_NUMBER\"}" -H "Content-Type:application/json" https://api.elmah.io/v3/deployments?api_key=$ELMAHIO_APIKEY

The script uses curl to invoke the elmah.io Deployments endpoint with the API key ($ELMAHIO_APIKEY) and a version number ($BITBUCKET_BUILD_NUMBER). The posted JSON can be extended to support additional properties like changelog and the name of the person triggering the deployment. Check out the API documentation for details.
