Do Chrome notifications exist in Gitlab?

I just got a new laptop for work, and I could have sworn that on my old laptop, I had Chrome push notifications set up for Gitlab, specifically around a particular pipeline in my project. On my new laptop though, for the life of me, I cannot figure out how to enable them again or if they even exist at all. Was I hallucinating? Do push notifications from GitLab exist?

Hi @rpk292 and welcome to the GitLab Community Forum! :tada:

Good question! I’m happy to say you were not hallucinating, GitLab pipeline push notifications in Chrome are very real. It sound like they got disabled, or weren’t enabled on the new computer. I believe Chrome prompts you once asking if you’d like to allow notifications from GitLab.com, but it can be easily enabled manually too.

In Chrome, go to the :hamburger: menu (three vertical dots), Settings > Privacy and Security > Site settings > Notifications >

https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/3220216?co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&hl=en

Or just go to chrome://settings/content/siteDetails?site=https%3A%2F%2Fgitlab.com%3A443 and select “Allow” next to “Notifications”.

For other types of notifications line updates to issues and comments in merge requests, you can toggle email & to-do notifications in GitLab with the “Notification” toggle on the left-hand side of issue and MR pages.

Hope this helps, let us know how it goes!
