Understanding notifications

Notifications ensure that administrators are informed about important events taking place within their SCM account. In addition to the numerous default notifications, SCM supports the creation of custom notifications.

Customizable notification settings include:

  • Who should be notified

  • What type of event triggers the notification

  • When the notification should be sent

Notifications can be managed on the Settings  Notifications page.
