How to send email notification before build

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Configuring notifications for a plan and its jobs

We have a requirement to send an email communication to the list of user before the build start.

How do I configure this in bamboo server ?

I don't see any notification type to trigger an email on pre-build event.

YOu can two ways:


  1.  Write ur own plugin or extend repository before event module
  2. if you are not expert in bamboo devlopment, use script task and execute script to send email.

could you please explain little more on the above 2 points. I am from .Net world and can I write a bamboo plugin on .net ?

Any URL link or steps on this will be highly helpful for me.
