SID-00274: ActionTrackerPlugin keeps sending email for TWikiGuest , etc

Status: Answered Answered TWiki version: 4.2.4 Perl version:
Category: ActionTrackerPlugin Server OS: FreeBSD 6.3 Last update: 9 years ago

We installed the ActionTrackerPlugin. I set up some cronjobs following the examples at http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Plugins/ActionTrackerPlugin#Notification .

Now, we are receving email and bounces for tasks assigned to TWikiUser and AlistairDarling. This is because ''actionnotify'' is seeing the example tasks assigned to the users TWikiUser and AlistairDarling, in the ActionTrackerPlugin documentation.

What is the best way to turn off these emails?

Discussion and Answer

You can specify which webs actionnotify scans. E.g., I have users with personal to do lists on their Main pages. So (on Windows) the script called by the scheduled task (analagous to cron) looks like this:

REM MondayJob.bat

cd /d D:\Prd\TWiki\bin
perl D:\Prd\TWiki\tools\actionnotify "web=\"Tech\" state=\"open\""
perl D:\Prd\TWiki\tools\actionnotify "web=\"Main\" state=\"open\""

Alternatively, use the plugin's NOSEARCHALL to exclude the TWiki web.

Thanks. I opted for the 'NOSEARCHALL' fix to disable this on the ActionTrackerPlugin page only.
