Plugin Request: Task Reminder

Meng Ge Apr 13, 2016

We want to install the 'Taks Reminder' plugin to Confluence.(Task Reminder for Atlassian Confluence)

Before installation, we need to know some technical details:

1 the mail notification concurrency mechanism, if there are many task will be reminder, any potential risk for performance?

2 the buffer for the mail queue, if mail queue exceed the buffer, what will happen?

3 when reminder mail send failed, such as outag occurs, what's the actions when application recover?

4 any application configuration related with this plugin?

5 any potential performance risk with this feature?

thanks a lot

Hi,

1 the mail notification concurrency mechanism, if there are many task will be reminder, any potential risk for performance?

Its a scheduled job which runs once a day as default.

2 the buffer for the mail queue, if mail queue exceed the buffer, what will happen?

We use the "Atlassian Mail Queue".

The maximum amount of send mails per scheduled job execution is equal to the active Confluence user accounts, because every user recieves one e-mail at most.


3 when reminder mail send failed, such as outag occurs, what's the actions when application recover?

As we use the "Atlassian Mail Queue", the Confluence System is responsible to send the mails and handle failures. 

4 any application configuration related with this plugin?

> Yes please take a look at the documentation

5 any potential performance risk with this feature?

> So far nothing is reported.

 

Hope that helps.

Best regards

Hi Clemens,

Thanks a lot for your support.

At present, we've already installed the plugin on Confluence – version 1.1.6

But we encountered a bug:when the task starts with a url, that url is not included in the reminder.

It gave an error:More disk space needed at Bacula.

How can we handle this?

 

Thanks,

Meng

Hi Meng,

I will check this. What Confluence Version do you use?

Best regards

Hi Meng,

we checked the plugin with tasks that start with a URL. We were unable to reproduce the bug. 

Our Confluence Version was 5.8. Which Confluence version do you use?

Best regards,

Stefan

Our Confluence Version is 5.7.3

Stefan Mücke May 03, 2016

Hi Meng,

now we´ve checked the plugin with the confluence version 5.7.3 too. But we are still unable to reproduce the bug. 

Best regards,

Stefan

See the screenshot for an example.  Often the ID's in front of the task descriptions are a link, and when in front of the task description the link text, thus our task ID ) is completely missing from the task reminder email.

Anyone who can help me? Who can reproduce the issue? – It really exists.

Clemens Tietze May 20, 2016

Hi Meng,

thanks for the screenshots, we will check it with this task examples. We won't leave you alone, we only need to be able to reproduce it wink 

Best regards
