Configurable email address for notifications per repository (BB-9863)

Issue #8718 duplicate
Marc van Gend
created an issue

Several users have already asked for email notification settings per repository (eg. #2645 and #6587) Those issues were closed as duplicate of #6580. Although that issue is now marked as resolved, the feature was never added.

Erik, I'm assigning this to you since you were the one who resolved #6580.

    Hi Marc,

    Can you be a little more clear about what type of settings you are interested in? We do let you specify which emails you receive for each repository, so I'd like to know what you think we're missing.

    Hi Michael,

    I would like to choose which email address the notifications are sent to. Currently I can specify multiple email addresses in my user profile, but all notifications are sent to the primary email address. It would be nice if the email address for notifications can be overridden per repository.

    I hope that answers your question.

    Hi Marc,

    I think the request you're making is different to the ones described in the resolved issue you reference. This is more similar to #7304, though more specific. I've added your request to our backlog.

    Thanks Zach.

    I guess you're right - This exact feature was only mentioned in a comment. I'm pretty sure I've seen it being asked somewhere else too, but I couldn't find it again.

    Anyway, thanks for adding it to the backlog.

    Yes! That's the issue I remembered reading months ago. I guess the option to control it per repo (instead of per organization) is more fine-grained, but settings per organization or team will probably serve 95% of use cases.

    +1 GitHub do this, it's very useful

    per team would be enough for me, or per repo whichever is easier

    eg I work as a contractor, each time I start a new job I get a company email address which I use to commit with in git and add to my BB account... but I only have the one BB account. So notifications for company work all go to my personal email currently
