It is often useful to receive an email when certain status changes occur in a stage. For example, a developer might want to know when their own check-in has broken the build. Alternatively, a manager might want an email whenever a project is deployed into production. Both of these scenarios can be covered by Notification Filters
Notifications will only work if Security is enabled and mailhost information is correct.
Usage: As a developer, I want to be notified when I break a build on “acceptance” pipeline.
Click on the Preferences tab
Click “Edit” and enter the email address, and make sure “Enable email notification” is checked
When I check in, my source control log in will be either “User” or “username”, so enter both of those into the “My check-in aliases” box
Click “Save” to store these values
Add a filter for the “twist-plugins” stage of “acceptance” pipeline to notify me when a check-in of mine breaks the build
You can set up notifications for different events
- All - all the runs for the stage
- Passes - the passed runs for the stage
- Fails - the stage run that continues to fail
- Breaks - the stage run that broke the build
- Fixed - the stage run that fixed the previous failure
- Cancelled - the stage run that was cancelled
Previous state influences Event type
The table below shows how the previous state can influence the triggered event:
|Previous state||Current state||Event|
I’ll be emailed whenever the “twist-plugins” stage of “acceptance” pipeline breaks due to my check-in
I’ll be emailed whenever the “build” stage of “plugins” pipeline fails due to my check-in
I’ll be emailed whenever the “upload-installers” stage of “distributions-all” pipeline passes for any check-in
I’ll be emailed on all events for any stage of “regression” pipeline for my check-in
Users can also select to get notifications for a particular (or all) event on any stage of any pipeline.
I’ll be emailed whenever any stage of any pipeline fails due to my check-in
