Understanding Background Job notifications

Applies to: VisualSVN Server 5.0 and later

This article describes background job notification settings. These settings are the same for all types of background jobs available in VisualSVN Server. To customize notifications for an individual background job, open the Properties dialog for that job and switch to the Notifications tab.

Prerequisites

Notifications must be enabled globally in the VisualSVN Server properties. See the KB184: Configuring administrative email notifications article for instructions.

Notification levels

You can select what background job results you would like to be notified of. Notifications can be sent after every background job run or only after certain job run results.

Error

When the Error check box is selected, a notification will be sent if an error occurs during the job run. For example, you will receive an error notification if a Verify job fails to verify a repository due to corruption.

Warning

When the Warning check box is selected, a notification will be sent if the job finishes with a warning or is interrupted. For example, you will receive a warning notification if a user interrupted a job run before its completion.

Selecting this check box automatically selects the Error check box.

Success

When the Success check box is selected, a notification will be sent if the job completes successfully. For example, you will receive a success notification if a Verify job successfully verifies the repositories.

Selecting this check box automatically selects the Error and Warning check boxes.

Notification recipients

VisualSVN Server allows you to select the recipients to be notified. The options are:

  • Default administrative email address. Notifications will be sent to the administrative email address that is configured in the VisualSVN Server properties.
  • Custom email addresses. Notifications will be sent to a custom email address overriding the default administrative email address. To add multiple recipients, enter their email addresses separated with a comma.
