Email flow

What is the flow of email notifications through the system from creating and incident to closing it? Who gets notified when?

When an issue is created, a notification is sent to all members of the staff role immediately (broadcast notification).

When any change occurs to a ticket (anything that creates a new item in the activity log), both the owner and assigned user will receive a notification.

Users are not notified of changes they make to a ticket themselves, only changes someone else made.

To prevent the system from spamming users when changes to a single ticket occur in rapid succession, the notifications are put on a sliding delay. When a change happens, a notification is queued and then held for a few minutes. If an additional notification occurs for the same user and ticket, then the first notification will not be sent. The second notification will be queued instead, and it will wait a little longer than the first. If more notifications come in, each in turn will supplant the previous notification, be queued, and wait a bit longer. This continues until a notification reaches the end of it's delay period without being supplanted by newer notifications, or the max wait time (15 minutes) is reached, at which point a notification will be sent.

With the default configuration, users will receive email a notification within 5 to 15 minutes of a ticket being changed by another user.

These times can vary a bit for for two reasons:
  1. The email is sent from a timer, which has a default interval (2 minutes if I remember correctly).
  2. If an email attempt fails, the system has a retry system that also has a sliding schedule of its own.

BTW, you mentioned in another post that you are operating as a one-man shop right now, so you should not be bothered by any email from TicketDesk (except the broadcast notifications).
