specify how to monitor trackers

I can get an insane amount of spam

As a regular user on a tracker,

  • When I'm on a tracker report view I can get access to "Notification" menu in action bar.
  • Then I click on it and I have a section with a radio where with following options
    • No notifications at all
    • No global notifications (default)
    • Notify me when artifacts are created
    • Notify me on every change
  • Whenever I switch from no global notif to something else, I'm added in a new global notification with permissions checked
    • If a tracker admin un-check "check permissions" for a given user, this user will be able to switch between "Notify me when artifacts are created"  and "Notify me on every change", without changing "check permissions" status
    • However if user switch to "No global notifications", check permissions perference is reset so a futur change will be "With permissions checked"
  • When I switch to "No notifications at all"
    • I no longer receive any notification from this tracker (like when I unsubscribe from artifacts)
    • I'm removed from existing "global notifications" that might have been set by tracker admin
    • Tracker admin can no longer add me directly in global notifications
    • If I'm part of a group that is set in global notifications, I won't receive notifications (tracker admin won't be informed about that)
    • The only exception is usage of direct email address (instead of user): no verification is set on email.
    • "No notifications" people are also listed to tracker admins

As a tracker admin

  • In the "global monitoring" section
  • I get the ususal notification list with 1 people per line (it's not possible to distinguish people who susbscribed themselves and those who were subscribed by a tracker admin)
  • I don't see the "radio button list"
  • I can add and remove users from the unsubscribers list

Technically speaking it's like adding someone to the list of global email notification with:

  • Permissions checked
  • Notify at each update

  • [ ] Does it involves User Interface? 
  • [ ] Are there any mockups?
  • [ ] Are permissions checked?
  • [ ] Does it need Javascript development?
  • [ ] Does it need a forge upgrade bucket?
  • [ ] Does it need to execute things in system events?
  • [ ] Does it impact project creation (templates)?
  • [ ] Is it exploratory?
