For a long time, Deploy has been able to send messages to your private chat system of choice (Hipchat, Slack, Campfire or Flowdock) to alert you to the success for failure of a deployment. Up until now, this message has been uncustomisable.

Today we're releasing a feature which will allow you to modify the format of the messages sent to your chat system. By deafult this will read "Successful/Failed deployment of Git HTTP Test - a94a1c98 - a94a1c98 to Server01", however using our comprehensive list of variables you can customise your message to make it useful to your organisation.

Configuring Slack

As an added bonus, the new variables we've added to support chat notifications are available in Config Files and SSH Commands in your project.
