By default, BugBug is sending email notifications about scheduled runs to all members of your organization. This makes sure that as soon as your app is not working as it should you will get an email alert.
You can change this rule on the Alerts page:
  • when people get notifications
  • who will receive them
You can also send additional notifications to email addresses who are not members of your organization, for example, clients or colleagues.
Alerts settings are configured per project, each project has independent settings.

Adding a new alert to your project

By clicking on the "New alert" button you can set up alerts related to a specific project.

Choose when the alert should be sent

You can easily select when the alerts should be triggered by clicking and expanding the drop-down list in the "When" section. Available options:
  • Test started
  • Test finished
  • Suite started
  • Suite finished
  • Schedule started
  • Schedule finished

Along with other conditions, such as:

  • Which suites/tests/schedules - allows you to select various suites, tests or schedules
  • Results - "Passed", and "Failed" are selected by default, but you can also select a third option - "BugBug internal error" that will send an alert when i.e. some technical issues occur on BugBug's side that could impact the test run results.
  • Methods - contains "Local browser" and "Cloud" options to be selected but this is dependent on your subscription plan settings
  • Profile - a profile that was used in selected runs
  • Run by - define what causes the run. Select between: "Manually by a user", "API" or "Automatically by scheduler"
Remember that these fields will change based on what type of event you will select in the "When" section from the listed options.

Set what type of action should be executed*

*Note: for now you can only choose the "Send email notification" option. More will come soon, such as: creating a Jira ticket and sending a notification on one of your team's communicators like Slack, Teams, etc.

Send email notification

Select who should be notified

In the "Send to" drop-down section you can select who should be notified when alerts are triggered. You can select between:
  • All people (in the selected project)
  • Selected user(s)

Additional email addresses for notifications

You can also send notifications to other people, who are not members of your organization. For example:
  • notify your clients about their app status without granting them access to the whole project
  • notify other teams who don't want to sign up for BugBug but still want to be notified when something is not working as it should
You can enter several additional email addresses, separated by a comma.

Alerts list and management

Having all the data filled you can add your alert by clicking on the "Create alert" button to see it on the list.

Click on the toggle button to enable/disable each alert.
Click on the "..." to display the drop-down menu and select between available options:
  • Edit
