What Can I Do with "Send REST API notifications by e-mail"?

You can set whether to send notifications by e-mail when REST API actions are performed on Kintone. Notifications for REST API actions include the following notifications:

Example:

  • A General notification sent when a record is added through REST API
  • A notification sent when an assignee is updated through REST API
  • A Per Record notification sent when a record is updated through REST API

Note that Reminder notifications are not triggered by API actions. Reminder notification e-mails will be sent regardless of the REST API notification setting. For example, if you disable Send REST API notifications by e-mail and then use REST API to add records, a Reminder notification e-mail is still sent when the reminder condition is met.

If you use REST API to automate actions on Kintone and also enable Send REST API notifications by e-mail, you may receive a large number of notifications by e-mail. To avoid numerous e-mail notifications, you can disable Send REST API notifications by e-mail. In such a case, you can still see the notifications by accessing the page on Kintone.
