Receiving email notifications for changes to test artifacts

If you create or own test artifacts, you can configure user-level preferences to receive email notifications for any changes that occur to the artifacts.
You can also subscribe yourself and other team members to receive email notifications for the changes that occur to the test artifacts. For example, you can set preferences to receive email notifications if the owner changes or if the execution status is failed.
Note: In a project with configuration management enabled, if you subscribe to an execution record, the subscription is valid for all the streams that contain the execution record. If you only want to receive notifications for a specific stream, you can select that stream in the preferences.
You can configure which changes to receive notifications for in the Preferences window, on the Change Notifications page. For more information, see User preferences for quality management. You can receive email notifications when changes occur to the following test artifacts:
  • Test case execution records
  • Test suite execution records
  • Execution schedules
Note: You must configure the QM server to receive email notifications. For more information, see Configuring email settings.

Subscribing to test artifacts

You subscribe to test artifacts in the test artifact editor. For example, you can open a test case execution record and, in right pane of the editor, click the Add icon to subscribe to the test suite execution record. You can subscribe to multiple records to receive email notifications. In the test execution records list view, select the test execution records. Click the Actions icon and select Subscribe to Execution Records. You can subscribe yourself and other team members to the execution records.

In the test artifact editor, you can view the details of subscribers in the Subscribers pane. The Subscribers pane displays photos of the subscribers, if the subscribers provide them. The following image shows the subscriber section for an execution record:Subscriber pane in editor
