Subscribable notifications with affected and event field empty will trigger for all subscribed users
Attempts to subscribe to a notification and receive it without having to subscribe to a CMDB Configuration Item (CI) are unsuccessful. Everyone subscribed to the notification will receive it every time it triggers. In some cases, it will stop working.
You could experience the need to validate your subscribable notifications if:
- You have upgraded to the latest product version.
- You are no longer using the legacy subscribable engine.
- Users stop receiving the notifications they are subscribed to.
After an upgrade, several forms related to subscription will be modified or updated.
To receive a subscribable notification without having to relate a CI:
Go to sys_properties_list.do and set the glide.notification.use_legacy_subscription system property value to false.
Navigate to System Notification > Email > Notifications and open the notification.
Select the Subscribable checkbox.
Leave the Affected field on the event field empty.
Leave the Item table field empty.
On the user preferences, subscribe to the notification and it will not ask you to add a Configuration Item (CI).
|Note: Every time the notification triggers, all the subscribed users will receive the notification as well|
