Subject [jira] Commented: (CONTINUUM-1845) Notification mails is not always sent but just if the build state changes
Date Mon, 25 Aug 2008 08:19:26 GMT


Thomas Demande commented on CONTINUUM-1845:

I personally think that this issue is taken by the wrong side.

Looking at the mailing list thread that initiated that issue, the problem described was that
{{<alwaysSend>}} was sending message to every notifier, even if we configured not to
send that state to that notifier.

My thought is that we are missing a property here, something like {{<sameStateSend>}},
that would allow more fine grained customization.

Use case : 

* Notifier A for successful builds
* Notifier B for failure builds
* {{<alwaysSend>false</alwaysSend>}}
* {{<sameStateSend>true</sameStateSend>}}

=> a second successfull build will be notified to A, not to B.

And I think that use case is the missing one in Continuum

> Currently with <alwaysSend> set to false, notification mails are sent only if the
build state changes or if the state is ERROR or FAILURE and the notifier has been configured
with error/failure.
> This means that for a build in state SUCCESS, notification mails are not sent every time
a build is run.
> Indeed the expected behavior should be that notification mails are sent every time the
build state matches the one configured per notifier. If a notifier is configured with "Send
on Success" it wants to receive an email every time the project is built with success.
