In SonarQube versions like 5.2 each developer with open issues received a mail after an analysis has run in cases of
- new issues have been assigned to the developer
- there are still unresolved issues assigned to the developer
In case of the second option described these mails are not anymore being sent out with the exact same Notification Settings of the user. It is a very useful reminder to the developer that there are still open issues assigned to him if he receives a mail per day, If this was removed on purpose then i would expect one of the options to handle this case.
This is the Notification Settings used:
SonarQube Version: * Version 7.2 (build 13530) (no mails)
SonarQube Version: * Version 5.2 - [LGPL v3] (mails are sent)
