Table of Contents

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

  • Changes in issues assigned to me or reported by me
  • New alerts
  • New false positives
  • New issues
for all projects or a specific list of projects.

Notification Mechanism

During each analysis, the notifications are computed for each user who has subscribed to notifications. Then, in an asynchronous way, these notifications are sent to users by emails.

To set the delay between processing of notification queue, set the sonar.notifications.delay property (in seconds) in SONAR_HOME/conf/ Note that the server has to be restarted for the new value to be taken into account.


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 email and you clicking on the link to the Issues drill-down in this email.

Event Subscription

Each logged in user can subscribe to notifications by going to UserName > My profile and ticking the events they want to subscribe to.

In the below example, the user will receive notifications for:

  • New alerts on any project
  • Changes in issues assigned to her/him or reported by her/him on the following projects: 'Simple Java Project' and 'Simple Cobol Project'
  • New issues on the following projects: 'Simple Java Project' and 'Simple Cobol Project'
