Deployment Hooks

DevShop has many ways to allow customized actions after deployment of code and data.

Project Settings: Default Deploy Hooks

In the project settings form, you will see Default Deploy Hooks section with the following options:

  • Run database updates

  • Clear all caches

  • Revert all features

If you have the DevShop dotHooks module enabled, you will also see:

  • Run deploy commands in the .hooks file.

If you have the DevShop Acquia module enabled, you will also see:

  • Run Acquia Cloud Hooks.

You will also see a checkbox for "Allow environment-specific deploy hook configuration.".

Environment Settings: Deployment Hooks

In each Environment's Settings form, you will see a section called "Deployment Hooks" if "Allow environment-specific deploy hook configuration." was checked in the Project Settings form.

DevShop dotHooks

DevShop now supports placing your hook commands in a file called .hooks, .hooks.yml, or .hooks.yaml.

Create a file with the format below to give your developers more control over what happens when new code is deployed.

System environment variables are available.

# Fires after an environment is installed.
install: |
  drush {{alias}} vset site_name "Hooks Hooks Hooks"

# Fires after code is deployed. A "deployment" happens when you push to your
# git repository or select a new branch or tag for your environment.
deploy: |
  echo "Running hooks in the $DEVSHOP_ENVIRONMENT environment for the $DEVSHOP_PROJECT..."
  drush {{alias}} updb -y
  drush {{alias}} cc all
  echo "Environment Variables:"

# Fires after "verify" task.
verify: |
  drush {{alias}} status

# Fires after "Run Tests" task.
test: |
  drush {{alias}} uli

# Fires after "Deploy Data (Sync)" task.
sync: |
  drush {{alias}} en devel -y
