Watched changes

If you want to keep track of only certain projects in Gerrit, you can use the watched projects and changes features.

  1. Login to Gerrit and go to settings
  2. Click on "Notifications" in the side bar
  3. Start typing the project name in the Project input field in the last row of the table
  4. Add any query (branch name etc.), or leave that field blank
  5. Click Add and a new row will be added to the table
  6. Specify an email notifications you want
  7. Click Save changes


  • Start typing in "Project Name" a search query [1] [2]; click "watch" to confirm.
    • extensions start with "mediawiki/extensions/..." (e.g. "mediawiki/extensions/WikiLove")
    • MediaWiki core is "mediawiki/core"


  • The usual rules for search by project don't apply: you can't use regular expressions, every project has to be watched individually and the parent projects like "mediawiki" don't serve any purpose.[3]
  • The wildcard "project" allows you to watch all projects (however, you may not have permission to use it, it seems).

View watched changes:

  • Click on "My" at the top of the window.
  • Click on "Watched Changes"
