Disable/Suppress Mail Notification temporarily


Stefan Stern (4061128) | asked Oct 23 '07, 4:51 p.m.
Hello all.

Is it possible to suppress or disable the mail notification for
maintenance / administrative tasks?

In our current installation we have to reorganize both our categories
and our versions in the process. In order to avoid several hundred of
notification mails, we currently look for a way how to suppress these
for around an hour or in between server restarts.

This means that the mails should not be created and enqueued until the
notification is activated again.

Can this be done somehow?

Thanks and regards,
Stefan

If you perform the same steps with an older build, the Jazz server
will catch-up and send all mails from the time where mails were disabled.

Yes, that's exactly the behavior we were running into. Thanks for the
reply!

Glad, I could help. I just wanted to add that I recommend to let the
server run for 10 more min. after the migration. The Jazz server writes
a marker to the repository every 10 min. to keep track of which
notifications in needs to send. If you wait at least 10 min. you ensure
that a marker is set *after* all migration related events thus ignoring
them.

As of the latest integration build (M4D1-I20071101-2006) it is now
possible to suppress the mail notifications. Just follow these steps:
- Shutdown the Jazz server
- In the teamserver.properties file set
workitem.notification.mail.enabled= false
- Restart the Jazz server and perform your maintainance
- Stop the server, re-enable mail notifications and restart

If you perform the same steps with an older build, the Jazz server will
catch-up and send all mails from the time where mails were disabled.
