3.7.3 Notification Events

The Notification Events section is where project managers can set up when and to whom notifications are sent out to users of the system. Clicking on the Notification Event link will present you with a list of all events defined for the current project:

Note: These events can handle all changes to any of the artifacts except changes handled by Status changes to Incidents. Incident status changes are handled through the Workflow configuration.

When clicking on the Edit link or Add button, you will be presented with the event details screen:

The top section defines general configuration items for the event:

  • Event Name: used to name the event, only used for administrative purposes.
  • Artifact Type: The artifact type this event is attached to. Once an event is created, the artifact type cannot be changed.
  • On Creation? If set to yes, this event will fire when an artifact is created, as well as when any configured fields are changed.
  • Active? If set to yes, this event is active and will send notifications when configured fields are modified.
  • Subject Line: The subject line of the notification email.

The Artifact Fields will let you configure which fields will cause this notification to send an email notification:

Selected fields are treated in an OR-based query, so that if you have two or more fields checked for an event, the event will send a notification if either of the two fields are changed. Depending on the artifact type configured above, the available fields will vary.

The last section is the configuration of whom to send the notifications to:

If a user belongs to more than one group or they have manually signed up to receive notifications to any changes in the artifact, they will only receive one notification for the artifact change.
