Strapi Webhook for Redeploying Frontend

I’m trying to get strapi to trigger a re-deploy of my app using DigitalOcean’s API.

Specifically I’m using the{app-id}/deployments POST endpoint but although I can authenticate correctly the request is rejected for some reason. It appears Strapi is sending a body along with the request which DigitalOcean rejects. Below is the error message I receive back from DigitalOcean.

{ statusCode: 400, message: "{\"id\":\"invalid_argument\",\"message\":\"unknown field \\\"event\\\" in apps.CreateDeploymentRequest\"}\n" }

Has anyone managed to get this working?


Did you manage to get this working? I encountered the exact same issue. Everything is working fine in Postman, but doesn’t seem to work at all in Strapi.

Does this work if you try to run the following POST request using curl directly:

curl \
    -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
    -H "Authorization: Bearer TOKEN" \
    "<app_id>/deployments" \
    -XPOST \
    -d '{"force_build": true}
