Procedure documentationRegistering a User for Receiving Notification E-mails Locate this document in the navigation structure


Testers can receive notification e-mails about the execution of test cases and the test results.

Notification e-mails are sent in two cases:

  • A failure occurs during the execution of a test case (only the first error triggers a notification e-mail).

  • The execution is finished.

To receive notification e-mails, the user must be registered. To register for receiving notification e-mails means that one of the following roles in the testing process must be assigned to the user:

  • tester

  • test plan owner

  • test package owner

Typically, the role “tester” is used. You can use the additional roles “test plan owner” or “test package owner” if the testing process in your organization requires to do so. During development, for example, it can be useful that a user can appear in different roles: as a tester in test plan 1 and test package owner in test plan 2.

Note Note

The roles “test package owner” and “test plan owner” are attributes of the respective objects (test package or test plan, respectively). There is no relation to SAP roles.
