Managing Automated Notifications
When you go through your initial site setup, you are asked to provide an administrative contact email. This email is then used as the default contact method for all XNAT notifications. However, you can easily split this up into multiple emails for various system events if you prefer, using the Admin UI. Go to Administer > Site Administration > Notification Options to begin.
You can also edit your Admin contact email at Administer > Site Administration > Site Setup.
System Event Contacts
By default, XNAT will allow you to specify any email address as recipients of notifications, including non-users. You can limit these email address to those of registered users by setting "Allow Non-user Subscribers" to FALSE on the Notifications Admin page.
|Help Contact Info||The email address provided will be the recipient of any user query sent through the contact form located in the Help > Report An Issue page. It will also be listed as a contact in emails sent to users on various error conditions. It is recommended that this email address be monitored by a real person, and not an auto-response agent.|
|Error Messages||This is not currently used by default in XNAT, but data processing scripts and pipelines could be configured to send error messages to the listed email address.|
|Issue Reports||This is not currently used by default in XNAT, but new plugins, scripts or pipelines could be configured to send issue reports to the listed email address.|
|New User Alert||This is not currently used by default in XNAT, but a future release will send new user registration notifications to this email address. Currently, these notifications are sent to the primary site admin email address.|
|Updates||This is not currently used by default in XNAT, but new plugins, scripts or pipelines could be configured to send update reports to the listed email address.|
