Hangouts Chat is now Google Chat. You might temporarily see references to both names until this change rolls out everywhere.

Use the Google Cloud Build bot

Use the Google Cloud Build bot in Google Chat to get notifications about your Cloud Build projects.

Before you begin

Enable the Cloud Build API for any project where you want to use the Cloud Build bot. Learn more about Cloud Build.

  • You need a Google Cloud Platform account.
  • You need permission from your Google Workspace administrator to install bots.
  • You need to add the bot to Chat.
    Learn how to Find bots and add them to Chat.

Set up the Cloud Build bot notifications

You need to set up notifications in each room where you add the bot. The bot sends notifications to all rooms where it's a member.

  1. Open Chat.
  2. Choose an option:
    • Open a direct message with the bot and enter settings.
    • Go to a room with the bot and enter @Cloud Build settings.
    The current settings for the bot appear.
  3. Click Edit Settings.
  4. Sign in to your Cloud Build account.
    The Cloud Build bot configuration window opens and loads the Cloud projects that are available to you.
  5. Enter the name of a Cloud project.
    A list of triggers appears.
  6. Select a Cloud Build trigger from the list.
  7. From the Thread messages by menu, select No threadsProject, or Trigger.
  8. Select the states for which you want to send Chat notifications. 
  9. Click Save.
  10. (Optional) To configure another project and trigger notification, click Add.

Change bot settings

In rooms, only the person who configured the bot can change the settings.

  1. Open Chat.
  2. Choose an option:
    • Open a direct message with the bot and enter settings.
    • Go to a room with the bot and enter @Cloud Build settings.
    The current settings for the bot appear.
  3. Click Edit Settings.
  4. Sign in to your Cloud Build account.
    The Cloud Build bot configuration window opens.
  5. Click Edit "" and change the settings as needed.
  6. Click Save.

Removing the bot from a room deletes the bot settings.

Using the bot in rooms

To use the bot in rooms, you need to explicitly @mention the bot in each message to the bot (including in replies to messages from the bot). The @mention confirms you're sending the message to the bot and not to others in the room.

  • To see a list of all available commands, enter @Cloud Build help.
  • To view the currently configured notifications, enter @Cloud Build settings.
  • To send feedback about the bot, enter @Cloud Build feedback feedback text.
