GitLab Documentation

System hooks

Your GitLab instance can perform HTTP POST requests on the following events: project_create, project_destroy, project_rename, project_transfer, project_update, user_add_to_team, user_remove_from_team, user_create, user_destroy, key_create, key_destroy, group_create, group_destroy, user_add_to_group and user_remove_from_group.

System hooks can be used, e.g. for logging or changing information in a LDAP server.

Note:

We follow the same structure from Webhooks for Push and Tag events, but we never display commits.

Same deprecations from Webhooks are valid here.
