Thanks,

Because Follow up actions run in the same transaction as the operation, you might rather follow the information below.  However, here is an example for a follow up action: https://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2012/07/31/rtc-update-parent-duration-estimation-and-effort-participant/

See https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/QueryDevGuide and http://jorgediazblog.wordpress.com/2013/06/28/rtc-custom-scheduled-async-task-example-explained/ for more information.

Also possible https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/TeamProcessDeveloperGuide  adding a com.ibm.team.process.service.IChangeEventHandler .

Get the MailerService:  getService(IMailerService.class);  and use it to send a mail.

Not that I know of.  When you subscribe to a work item you receive e-mail if (almost) any field changes.  There isn't a way to trigger the e-mail message when certain fields change while ignoring changes to other fields.

Hi Bharath,

as of today there is noting in the product that would do this.

You could write a followup action or an extension that runs based on notification. Both could run on the server and could use the e-mail service available in the server. There are several customers that have created extensions to do similar things. IBM offers another extension that enhances e-mail notification as service.

Hi Ralph,

Could you explain how to set the followup action or extension to fulfill this? Any wiki or link would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
