Notification settings API

Introduced in GitLab 8.12.

Valid notification levels

  • new_note
  • new_issue
  • reopen_issue
  • close_issue
  • reassign_issue
  • issue_due
  • new_merge_request
  • push_to_merge_request

  • reassign_merge_request
  • merge_merge_request
  • failed_pipeline
  • success_pipeline
  • new_epic
