This feature provides the ability to allows any logged in user to subscribe to the following email notifications:

  • Changes in review issues assigned to me or created reported by me
  • New violations on my favourite projects introduced during the first differential view period

Notification Mechanism

During each Sonar analysis, the notifications are computed for each user who has subscribed to notifications. Regarding violations, users are notified on new violations introduced on their favourite projects during the first differential view period (Period 1).

Then, in asynchronous way, emails on those notifications are sent to users.

To set the delay between processing of notification queue, set the property sonar.notifications.delay (in seconds) in conf/


Note that sometimes there could be some discrepancy between values displayed in the email and values displayed on the web interface.

This happens if another analysis has been run between the sending of the mail and you clicking on the link to the Violations drill-down in the email.
