This feature provides the ability to 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
During each Sonar 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/sonar.properties. Note that the Sonar server has to be restarted for the new value to be taken into account.
Each logged in user can subscribe to notifications by going to UserName > My profile and tick the events they want to subscribe to.
In the below example, the user will receive notifications for:
- New alerts on any projects
- 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'
For Sonar to be able to send notifications by email, go to Settings > Configuration > General Settings > Email and configure the email settings.
