Email from GitLab

Tier: Premium, Ultimate Offering: Self-managed

Administrators can email all users, or users of a chosen group or project. Users receive the email at their primary email address.

You might use this functionality to notify your users:

  • About a new project, a new feature, or a new product launch.
  • About a new deployment, or that downtime is expected.

For information about email notifications originating from GitLab, read GitLab notification emails.

Unsubscribing from emails

Users can choose to unsubscribe from receiving emails from GitLab by following the unsubscribe link in the email. Unsubscribing is unauthenticated in order to keep this feature simple.

On unsubscribe, users receive an email notification that unsubscribe happened. The endpoint that provides the unsubscribe option is rate-limited.
