To begin, I'm assuming you have a Discord and GitHub account.

Receiving Notifications

  2. Next, click on Integrations and then click on Create Webhook. image.png
  3. Now, a new webhook is created, if you want to change it's name, you can do so. But I'll leave it as it is. image.png

Once the Webhook URL is copied,

  • Go to your GitHub repo and click on settings. image.png
  • Then click on Webhooks.
  • Next, click on Add webhook. image.png Then you might need to confirm your password.
  • Now add the web hook URL with /github on the end in Payload URL. image.png

  • In the Which events would you like to trigger this webhook? section, select Send me everything. to receive every GitHub notification.
  • Now click on Add Webhook, and now, you can receive all GitHub notifications in your discord server .🥳🥳🥳
