Gitea supports web hooks for repository events. This can be found in the settings page /:username/:reponame/settings/hooks. All event pushes are POST requests. The methods currently supported are:

  • Gitea
  • Gogs
  • Slack
  • Discord
  • Dingtalk
  • Telegram
  • Microsoft Teams

Event information

The following is an example of event information that will be sent by Gitea to a Payload URL:

Example

This is an example of how to use webhooks to run a php script upon push requests to the repository. In your repository Settings, under Webhooks, Setup a Gitea webhook as follows:

Now on your server create the php file webhook.php

<?php

$secret_key = '123';

// check for POST request
if ($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] != 'POST') {
    error_log('FAILED - not POST - '. $_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD']);
    exit();
}

// get content type
$content_type = isset($_SERVER['CONTENT_TYPE']) ? strtolower(trim($_SERVER['CONTENT_TYPE'])) : '';

if ($content_type != 'application/json') {
    error_log('FAILED - not application/json - '. $content_type);
    exit();
}

// get payload
$payload = trim(file_get_contents("php://input"));

if (empty($payload)) {
    error_log('FAILED - no payload');
    exit();
}

// get header signature
$header_signature = isset($_SERVER['HTTP_X_GITEA_SIGNATURE']) ? $_SERVER['HTTP_X_GITEA_SIGNATURE'] : '';

if (empty($header_signature)) {
    error_log('FAILED - header signature missing');
    exit();
}

// calculate payload signature
$payload_signature = hash_hmac('sha256', $payload, $secret_key, false);

// check payload signature against header signature
if ($header_signature != $payload_signature) {
    error_log('FAILED - payload signature');
    exit();
}

// convert json to array
$decoded = json_decode($payload, true);

// check for json decode errors
if (json_last_error() !== JSON_ERROR_NONE) {
    error_log('FAILED - json decode - '. json_last_error());
    exit();
}

// success, do something

There is a Test Delivery button in the webhook settings that allows to test the configuration as well as a list of the most Recent Deliveries.
