Can you set a notification in RTC that sends an e-mail when a specific file in the source control is modified?

Hello,

I am working with RTC 4.x.

As the summary question suggests, is there a non-extension method that allows me to set the system to automatically send an e-mail notification when a specific file in the repository is modified?

Thank you!

Andrew

There is no way to do it in IBM Rational Team Concert, as far as I know.
There are a number of Enhancements aimed at refining the email notification system, but I haven't found one that covers your request.
I suggest you use the RFE Community to create a request for enhancement.

There is noting out of the box.

It should be possible to create a follow up action that does this. The code in this advisor would be a starting point: https://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2012/11/01/restrict-delivery-of-changesets-to-workitem-types-advisordelivery-of-changesets-associated-to-wrong-work-item-types-advisor/


Keep in mind, an advisor can prevent the deliver, a follow up action or participant can do something after some event has been detected.

RTC provides versionable metadata on file versions, this could for example be used to detect that a mail needs to be sent.
