Batch completion notifications - Email integration
The Eyes Batch completion notifications feature gives you the option of automatically receiving email messages that inform you when batches you are running have successfully finished or failed. You can receive these notifications whether your tests are executed manually or by a build executed through a CI tool. The notifications contain a summary of the test completion status and quality, and include a link to the Test Manager where you can review the test results in detail.
To enable batch notifications for a particular test run, you must enable batch notifications in your test code as described in Setting up batch completion notifications in the SDK. For a full overview see Batch completion notifications. Note that notifications can also be sent to a Slack channel. See Batch completion notifications - Slack integration for more information.
- You need to be an Eyes team or account admin to configure notifications.
- Enable or disable email notifications.
- Specify the applications for which you want to receive email notifications.
- Specify the team members to receive email notifications.
- Specify the batch completion status that prompts Eyes to send email notifications.

You can opt out of receiving Batch completion notifications at any time by instructing Eyes to stop sending notifications. You do this by unsubscribing from receiving email notifications.
- Click the Unsubscribe link at the bottom of an email notification.
You can disable an email subscription to temporarily stop sending Batch completion notifications to team members for all applications that are associated with the subscription.
- Open the Email section on the Integrations tab.
- Click Enabled and set the option to the Off position.
- Click Save changes.
Deleting a subscription permanently stops email notifications being sent for the applications that are associated with the subscription and removes the subscription from the Email section. If you delete the only subscription in the Email section, the section closes and appears as disabled, with a gray circle located next to the Email section label. To re-enable the option, you will need to recreate the subscription.
Note: Disabling a subscription prevents Eyes from sending Batch completion notifications temporarily. Notifications can be re-enabled without the need to recreate the subscription.
- Open the Email section on the Integrations tab and locate the subscription you want to delete.
- Click the X in the right-hand corner of the subscription’s title bar.
- Click Save changes.
