#10405 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Disable notifications for individual changes

This feature request would probably solve some complaints about too many notification emails, while requiring only little configuration.

I suggest a checkbox on the ticket page, e.g above the commit button, labelled Do not send notifications for this change.

The default state is unchecked, so normally trac does send notifications. However, when making administrative changes (renaming keywords, renaming attachments, replacing cc by a registered user etc.) one can prevent unneccessary email floods.

Optionally, to prevent abuse, visibility of this checkbox could be restricted using privileges.

#2200 expressed a similar intention. The difference is that, with a checkbox it is up to the ticket editor to decide whether a change is trivial or not.

I see how this could be useful, yes. I'm not sure it belongs into Trac core, but currently it's difficult for a plugin to hook into the ticket notifications. We should at least add the necessary interfaces. IIRC the AnnouncerPlugin merge was tackling this, but the effort seems to be stalled.

As mentioned in #8607, the th:QuietPlugin provides the feature you are wanting, though you have to be using the th:AnnouncerPlugin.
