Hi! The way to achieve that will depend on whether you're using Bitbucket Server or Cloud.

In Bitbucket Cloud, users that are watching a repository will receive a notification when someone pushes a commit to the repo. These email notifications will be sent to your primary email. You can enable/disable them following the steps:

  1. From your avatar in the bottom left, click Bitbucket settings.
  2. Click Notifications under General.
  3. Depending on your current setting, click Enable email or Disable email.
    When email is disabled, the Email me about settings aren't available.

There's more info available at Manage email notifications

In Bitbucket Server this functionality is not included, you can use a plugin such as Notifyr - Notifications for Bitbucket.

Hope that helps you!


Hi . I have already activated that option but I am not receiving email, before this option there was another one located in repository setting that it actually worked for me. I can't receive push notifications from users from my team to my bitbucket email account.


Please help.

Hello. Can you @Ana Retamal please post a screenshot of the page that has Enable email and Disable email?

And any suggestion on how to trigger based on the project level?
