Notifications Lifecycle

TeamCity supports a set of events that can generate user notifications (such as build failure, investigation state changes, etc). On event occurrence, for each notificator type, TeamCity processes notification settings for all the users to define users that the notification should be sent to.


TeamCity notificators use templates to evaluate output values (global template variables) which are then retrieved by name. The following output values are supported:

Email Notificator

  • subject - subject of the email message to send
  • body - plain text of the email message to send
  • bodyHtml - (optional) HTML text of the email message to send. It will be included together with plain text part of the message
  • headers - (optional) Raw list of additional headers to include into email. One header per line. For example:
    Code Block
    <#global headers>
      X-Priority: 1 (Highest)
      Importance: High


  • message - plain text of the message to send

IDE Notifications and Windows Tray Notifications

  • message - plain text of the message to send
  • link - URL of the TeamCity page that contains detailed information about the event

The Atom/RSS feeds template differs from the others. For the details, please refer to the dedicated section.

For the template evaluation TeamCity provides the default data model that can be used inside the template. The objects exposed in the model are instances of the corresponding classes from TeamCity server-side open API.
The set of available objects model differs for different events.
You can also add your own objects into the model via plugin. See Extending Notification Templates Model for details.


See the defualt template for an example of available input variables and output variables.
