The CDash email-related settings are shown on a few different pages. This Wiki page is intended to be a good overview of where to go to adjust the email related settings for project, groups and individual users/subscribers.
Search this page (for "email") for email-related bugs that have been fixed:
On the "subscribeProject.php" page, for registered CDash users.
- user's project role: normal/site-maintainer/project-admin
- user's project repo credentials, per-project additional creds on top of the user's global repo creds
- user's "Email Preference"
( ) no email ( ) my checkins ( ) any nightly ( ) any builds at all [ ] my checkins fixing things [ ] missing expected
- user's "Email Category"
[ ] Update [ ] Configure [ ] Warning [ ] Error [ ] Test [ ] Dynamic Analysis
- user's "Email Labels"
If you select labels here, you will receive only emails corresponding to these labels
On the "createProject.php" page, the "E-mail" tab. These settings are documented on http://public.kitware.com/Wiki/CDash:Administration (search the page for "email").
[ ] Email submission failures (this means when there are config/build/test warnings or errors) [ ] Email redundant failures (if checked, always send email; if not, only send it on first failure) [ ] Email admin (when xml parsing fails, ... other?) [ ] Email low coverage [ ] Email test timing changed Max items in email (numerical text field) Max characters per item in email (numerical text field)
On the "manageBuildGroup.php" page, the "Current groups" tab:
[ ] Summary email (sends only one email per day when the first build in the group fails) [ ] No email (no email for this group regardless of the user's preferences) [ ] In summary (should this group be included on the summary page of a subproject-aware project)
9/17/2011 in svn trunk: added "Email committers" checkbox to email people who committed/authored on a per-group basis even if they are not registered with CDash (assuming we can grok their email address from the commit info... (we can with git based projects))
