Configuring notifications

Choose the type of activity on GitHub that you want to receive notifications for and how you want these updates delivered.

Notification delivery options

You can receive notifications for activity on GitHub in the following locations.

  • The notifications inbox in the GitHub web interface
  • The notifications inbox on GitHub for mobile, which syncs with the inbox on GitHub
  • An email client that uses a verified email address, which can also sync with the notifications inbox on GitHub and GitHub for mobile

GitHub及びGitHub for mobile上で通知インボックスを使うには、通知設定でWeb及びモバイル通知を有効化しなければなりません。 For more information, see "Choosing your notification settings."

Tip: Web通知とメール通知の両方を受信する場合、通知の既読あるいは未読状態を自動的に同期して、対応するメール通知を読んだら自動的にWeb通知が既読としてマークされるようにできます。 この同期を有効化するには、メールクライアントはnotifications@github.comからの画像を表示できなければなりません。

Benefits of the notifications inbox

The notifications inbox on GitHub and GitHub for mobile includes triaging options designed specifically for your GitHub notifications flow, including options to:

  • Triage multiple notifications at once.
  • Mark completed notifications as Done and remove them from your inbox. To view all of your notifications marked as Done, use the is:done query.
  • Save a notification to review later. Saved notifications are flagged in your inbox and kept indefinitely. To view all of your saved notifications, use the is:saved query.
  • Unsubscribe and remove a notification from your inbox.
  • Preview the issue, pull request, or team discussion where the notification originates on GitHub from within the notifications inbox.
  • See one of the latest reasons you're receiving a notification from your inbox with a reasons label.
  • Create custom filters to focus on different notifications when you want.
  • Group notifications in your inbox by repository or date to get a quick overview with less context switching

In addition, the notifications inbox on GitHub for mobile allows you to triage notifications in dark mode and receive push notifications for direct mentions. For more information, see "Enabling push notifications with GitHub for mobile" or "GitHub for mobile."

Benefits of using an email client for notifications

One benefit of using an email client is that all of your notifications can be kept indefinitely depending on your email client's storage capacity. Your inbox notifications are only kept for 5 months unless you've marked them as Saved. Saved notifications are kept indefinitely. For more information about your inbox's retention policy, see "About notifications."

Sending notifications to your email client also allows you to customize your inbox according to your email client's settings, which can include custom or color-coded labels.

Email notifications also allow flexibility with the types of notifications you receive and allow you to choose different email addresses for updates. For example, you can send certain notifications for a repository to a verified personal email address. For more information, about your email customization options, see "Customizing your email notifications."

About participating and watching notifications

When you watch a repository, you're subscribing to updates for activity in that repository. Similarly, when you watch a specific team's discussions, you're subscribing to all conversation updates on that team's page. For more information, see "About team discussions."

To see repositories that you're watching, go to your watching page. For more information, see "Managing subscriptions and notifications on GitHub."

You can configure notifications for a repository on the repository page, or on your watching page.

About custom notifications

You can customize notifications for a repository, for example, you can choose to only be notified when updates to one or more types of events (issues, pull request, releases, discussions) happen within a repository, or ignore all notifications for a repository. For more information, see "Viewing your subscriptions."

Participating in conversations

Anytime you comment in a conversation or when someone @mentions your username, you are participating in a conversation. By default, you are automatically subscribed to a conversation when you participate in it. You can unsubscribe from a conversation you've participated in manually by clicking Unsubscribe on the issue or pull request or through the Unsubscribe option in the notifications inbox.

For conversations you're watching or participating in, you can choose whether you want to receive notifications by email or through the notifications inbox on GitHub and GitHub for mobile.

Participating and watching notifications options

For example:

  • If you don't want notifications to be sent to your email, unselect email for participating and watching notifications.
  • If you want to receive notifications by email when you've participated in a conversation, then you can select email under "Participating".

If you do not enable watching or participating notifications for web and mobile, then your notifications inbox will not have any updates.

Customizing your email notifications

After enabling email notifications, GitHub will send notifications to you as multipart emails that contain both HTML and plain text copies of the content. Email notification content includes any Markdown, @mentions, emojis, hash-links, and more, that appear in the original content on GitHub. If you only want to see the text in the email, you can configure your email client to display the plain text copy only.

Tip: Web通知とメール通知の両方を受信する場合、通知の既読あるいは未読状態を自動的に同期して、対応するメール通知を読んだら自動的にWeb通知が既読としてマークされるようにできます。 この同期を有効化するには、メールクライアントはnotifications@github.comからの画像を表示できなければなりません。

If you're using Gmail, you can click a button beside the notification email to visit the original issue or pull request that generated the notification.

Buttons in Gmail

Choose a default email address where you want to send updates for conversations you're participating in or watching. You can also specify which activity on GitHub you want to receive updates for using your default email address. For example, choose whether you want updates to your default email from:

  • Comments on issues and pull requests.
  • Pull request reviews.
  • Pull request pushes.
  • Your own updates, such as when you open, comment on, or close an issue or pull request.

Depending on the organization that owns the repository, you can also send notifications to different email addresses. Your organization may require the email address to be verified for a specific domain. For more information, see "Choosing where your organization’s email notifications are sent."

You can also send notifications for a specific repository to an email address. For more information, see "About email notifications for pushes to your repository."


あなたがメンバーになっているOrganizationがメール通知を承認されたメールドメインに制限しているなら、メールアドレスを検証して、そのドメインでOrganization内のアクティビティに関するメール通知を受けるようにしなければなりません。 詳しい情報については「メール通知を承認済みドメインに制限する」を参照してください。

Filtering email notifications

Each email notification that GitHub sends contains header information. The header information in every email is consistent, so you can use it in your email client to filter or forward all GitHub notifications, or certain types of GitHub notifications.

If you believe you're receiving notifications that don't belong to you, examine the X-GitHub-Recipient and X-GitHub-Recipient-Address headers. These headers show who the intended recipient is. Depending on your email setup, you may receive notifications intended for another user.

Email notifications from GitHub contain the following header information:

From addressThis address will always be ''.
To fieldThis field connects directly to the thread. If you reply to the email, you'll add a new comment to the conversation.
Cc addressGitHub will Cc you if you're subscribed to a conversation. The second Cc email address matches the notification reason. The suffix for these notification reasons is The possible notification reasons are:
  • assign: You were assigned to an issue or pull request.
  • author: You created an issue or pull request.
  • comment: You commented on an issue or pull request.
  • manual: There was an update to an issue or pull request you manually subscribed to.
  • mention: You were mentioned on an issue or pull request.
  • push: Someone committed to a pull request you're subscribed to.
  • review_requested: You or a team you're a member of was requested to review a pull request.
  • security_alert: GitHub detected a vulnerability in a repository you receive alerts for.
  • state_change: An issue or pull request you're subscribed to was either closed or opened.
  • subscribed: There was an update in a repository you're watching.
  • team_mention: A team you belong to was mentioned on an issue or pull request.
  • your_activity: You opened, commented on, or closed an issue or pull request.
mailing list fieldThis field identifies the name of the repository and its owner. The format of this address is always <repository name>.<repository owner>
X-GitHub-Severity fieldX-GitHub-Severityヘッダフィールドを含む、1つ以上のリポジトリに影響するDependabotアラートに対するメール通知。 X-GitHub-Severityヘッダフィールドは、Dependabotアラートに対するメール通知のフィルタリングに利用できます。 The possible severity levels are:
