Adding webhooks for Gerrit



Webhooks are not configured by default in Gerrit. They are not built into Gerrit just like they are in GitHub, GitLab and etc. Thus, when calling Gerrit webhooks, these won’t trigger the reindex of the integration / repositories.



To use webhooks with Gerrit, it needs to be configured.

For starters, install Gerrit with the webhook plugin by reading at and the steps below.

Project (repository) list:

curl http(s)://

Enabled webhooks for the repository, for example, MyTestRepo:

curl http(s)://

Add webhook for the repository:

curl --user username:password -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -X PUT -d @webhook.json http(s)://

Where webhook.json:

   "url" : "",
   "maxTries" : 3,
   "sslVerify": true


Manually Trigger Webhooks

Create a webhook that can be triggered for any individual repository. It can be used with continuous integration service

Required headers:

  • ‘x-bbb-webhook-type’: PUSH

  • ‘Content-Type’: application/json

Optional headers:

  • ‘x-bbb-webhook-id’ — Can be any string representing the id of the request to be used.

Usage examples:

curl -H 'x-bbb-webhook-type: push' -H 'content-type: application/json' -X POST -d @payload.json https://webhook/url
curl -H 'x-bbb-webhook-type: push' -H 'x-bbb-webhook-id: id-string' -H 'content-type: application/json' -X POST -d @payload.json https://webhook/url


    "origin": "repository-origin"
