Set up notifications

By default, Adobe Commerce on cloud infrastructure writes build and deploy actions to the app/var/log/cloud.log file inside the Adobe Commerce root application directory. Optionally, you can send logs to a messaging system, such as Slack and email, to receive real-time notifications.

For example, you could send a Slack message to alert a group of people when a deployment fails, and prompt an investigation into what went wrong.

Plan notifications

Before you configure notifications, consider the following:

  • What kind of notifications do you want to receive (Slack messages, email, both)?
  • How much detail do you want to see in the logs?
  • Where do you want to set up notifications (Integration, Staging, Production)?

For example, during initial development you may prefer email notifications that show detailed logs about your Integration environment to help you debug issues before deploying to the Staging environment. When you are ready to deploy to the Staging or Production environment, you may prefer a Slack message that contains less detailed information.

The configuration file used to set up notifications is at the root of your project directory, so it applies when you push changes to any environment. If you want to customize notifications per environment, you must modify the configuration file before pushing it to that environment.

Configure notifications

To configure notifications:

  1. Open a terminal and checkout a branch in your local environment.
  2. In the .magento.env.yaml file in your project root, add your messaging system settings, including preferred notification Log levels.

    For example, to configure both Slack and email configurations, use the following:

    1
    2
    3
    4
    5
    6
    7

     log:
       slack:
         token: "<your-slack-token>"
         channel: "<your-slack-channel>"
         username: "SlackHandler"
         min_level: "info"
       email:
         to: <your-email>
         from: <your-email>
         subject: "Log notification from Adobe Commerce"
         min_level: "notice"
    

    Adobe Commerce on cloud infrastructure only sends emails during the deployment phase.

  3. Commit and push your changes to the remote server.

    1
    
    git -A && git commit -m "Configure build/deploy notifications"
    
    1
    
    git push origin <branch-name>
