New user account page and WebHooks

New user account page

SUSE Studio gets a new user account page!

Gone are the days where you had to navigate to different pages just to view or edit your personal information (e.g. EC2 credentials). Now, you can easily access your information as they are all within a page, divided into 4 different sub-tabs.

We like it and we hope you like it too!

WebHooks

Other than the new user account page, we have added support for WebHooks - a simple event notification/callback mechanism. All you have to do is to supply an URL in the WebHooks section within the user account page.

Next, choose one of your appliances and build:

SUSE Studio will POST to the URL when the build completes.

The POST contains details of the build, which includes a download URL:

You may make use of the details to run specific scripts or to download the built image automatically. For example, you may have downloading and processing of the image in a Sinatra server:

With WebHooks, you can do many interesting things, and we believe you will. More details on using WebHooks and some sample scripts can be found in our documentation.

Do try it out and let us know what you think!
