How do I make a Notification stay open until the user closes it?

Is there a setting that will allow me to keep a Notification open until a user clicks it?

if (("Notification" in window)) {

Notification.requestPermission(function() {
var notification =
new Notification('Hello',
{
body : 'Hello',
icon: 'https://www.domain.com/images/live_chat_icon.png',
tag: 'Test' ,
});

notification.onclick = function(event) {
event.preventDefault(); // prevent the browser from focusing the Notification's tab
window.open('https://www.domain.com', '_blank');
}
window.navigator.vibrate(500);
});
}

Answer

According to the docs there is a boolean requireInteraction:

A Boolean indicating that on devices with sufficiently large screens, a notification should remain active until the user clicks or dismisses it. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/notification

new Notification('Hello', { 
   body : 'Hello', 
   requireInteraction: true 
});

Tested in Chrome on MacOS.
