Summary0004320: Email filtering

At present the user can only filter the emails based on the severity, but maybe it's more senseful to filter emails based on a user role (like the email filtering of Bugzilla). My colleagues are annoyed about so much email traffic of mantis and just move their emails to the trash directory. It would be nice that I only get mails for issues I am related to (reporter, assignee, monitorer). I don't want to get informed when another developer assignes an issues or resolves one (expect if I reported that issue).

It would also be comfortable to configure if I will get emails about new issues which are not assigned to anybody.

The third feature request I would like to have is the email filtering possibility for custom status and relationship changes. I added a custom status 'tested' between resolved and closed and it's not possible to disable the email notification for that status. Neither is it possible to reject relationship changes notifications.

Sorry, if it is configurable and I have overseen it.
Mantis is a great product :)

The first two are already possible at an installation level using the $g_notify_flags and $g_default_notify_flags. See the manual page at <>.

Are you sure that I can configure 1) and 2) ? I read the documentation (by the way your link doesn't work it is but I don't want to configure this for everybody but user independent.

For example I want to get all mails (after bugnote added, status change, etc.) for issues I am the handler of and for all issues I have reported, but I doesn'
t want to get mails I'm not related on.

My flags are set to following at the moment and this should be sufficient or not? How is the notifyFlag settings read, is it read the way that if one of the conditions in the array is true, I will get the mail?
$g_default_notify_flags = array('reporter' => ON,
'handler' => ON,
'monitor' => ON,
'bugnotes' => ON,
'threshold_min' => DEVELOPER,
'threshold_max' => NOBODY);

Will I get all the Mails defined in default_notify_flags even if I put alle the flags off in my user settings?

The $g*notify_flags are global for the installation. (There is a feature request to extens all configuration to a per project or maybe per bug basis).

If you wan people to only see bugs they are involved in, you could set
<pre>$g_default_notify_flags = array('reporter' => ON,
'handler' => ON,
'monitor' => ON,
'bugnotes' => ON,
'threshold_min' => NOBODY,
'threshold_max' => NOBODY);

This would only send mails to people whe originated, were handling the bug, specifically requested monitoring, or added a bugnote.

This is overridden by the user's preferences (for example, where you don't want to see specific status changes).

The individual settings should be part of the per project settings contemplated for 0.20.

I agree with this request - many users want to either turn off email for certain projects or turn off certain types of email - particularly with respect to the large increase in mail traffic since the Relationships feature was put in. If I add a relationship to a bug, users now get 2 more emails than they used to, per bug!

I consider this a high priority because I'm in danger of losing the very people who are interested in how our project is moving along.

I'm leaving it open to capture the request for user based filtering on a per project basis.
