Pre-included notifications

GitBucket can send email notifications to users if this feature is enabled by an administrator.

You'll automatically receive these notifications when:

  • Opened issues (new issues, new pull requests)
    • When a record is inserted into the ISSUE table
  • Comments
    • Among the records in the ISSUE_COMMENT table, them to be counted as a comment (i.e. the record ACTION column value is "comment" or "close_comment" or "reopen_comment") are inserted
  • Updated state (close, reopen, merge)
    • When the CLOSED column value is updated

Notified users are as follows:

  • individual repository's owner
  • group members of group repository
  • collaborators
  • participants

However, the person performing the operation is excluded from the notification.

Watching repositories

When you watch a repository, you get notifications. You can unwatch a repository to receive notifications when participating. If you won't receive any notifications, you select Ignoring.

Subscribing to issues

You can subscribe or unsubscribe to individual issues.
