FAQ: E-mail on push

In case you want to configure an e-mail to be sent by GitLab upon project members pushing commits to a project, go through the steps below to configure your project. Additionally, you'll need to configure the commits mailing list of your project to accept mail from gitlab at

  • Go to the project page (picture 1)
  • Go to the project's settings (picture 2)
  • Go to the project's settings services (picture 3)
  • Configure the "Email on Push" service as shown in picture 4
