If you use Assembla and Bigplans, we have added a pre-configured webhook making it easy to post Assembla events out to your Bigplans chat room. Check out below for configuration instructions.
Bigplans is a simple, integrated way to manage a distributed team. It includes a "lean" task board, real-time chat, and a unique "advisor" (a real person) that helps you get on-demand resources if you need them. For programming teams, it includes a tight integration with Assembla login and Assembla tickets.
You can use the Webhooks tool to feed Assembla events into any of your team chats. To get started, you will need the Webhook tool installed in the Assembla project you want to configure. If you do not have the Webhook tool installed, visit the Admin tab > Tools section > and click ‘Add’ next to the Webhook tool.
Once installed, click on the Webhook tool in your main navigation and select Bigplans from the list of pre-configured post options:
You will need to obtain and update the auth token in the “Content” section.
To obtain your Bigplans auth token:
Visit Bigplans and navigate to the plan you want to post Assembla events to. Click on the ‘Connect’ option in the top bar. Under the “Message API” section, there is a section called “API Token” that will display your token. If no token is set, click on the ‘Reset’ button. Copy the token ID and replace the “BIGPLANS_AUTH_TOKEN” in the Webhook tool.
Now configure what Assembla events you would like to post to your Bigplans chat room and click ‘Add and Authenticate.” Don’t forget to enable the configuration under the “Title” field.
Your Assembla events will now be posted to the configured Bigplans chat room:
If you have any questions or problems during setup, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do not have an Assembla project and would like to test out this integration, try Assembla out for free.
