Subscribing to an Issue

This page shows how to subscribe to an issue in Google Issue Tracker.

You can subscribe to an issue by adding your e-mail address, or the e-mail address of another user or mailing list, to its associated CC list. E-mail addresses in the CC list receive notifications when a change is made to the issue.

You must have Edit Issues permissions for the component that contains the issue in order to add an e-mail address. If you only have Comment on Issues permissions, you can remove your own e-mail address from the CC list to unsubscribe, but you cannot unsubscribe other users or mailing lists.

Subscribe to an issue

To subscribe to an issue:

  1. Open Issue Tracker in your web browser.

  2. Navigate to the issue you want to subscribe to.

  3. Click CC Me in the right-hand Issue Fields panel to add your own e-mail address, or click Add and enter another e-mail address.

Unsubscribe from an issue

To unsubscribe from an issue:

  1. Open Issue Tracker in your web browser.

  2. Navigate to the issue you want to unsubscribe from.

  3. Click the X icon in the right-hand Issue Fields panel next to the e-mail address you want to remove. You can also click Un-CC Me to remove your own e-mail address. If you only have View and Comment permissions, the Un-CC Me link is the only option that appears.

Starring an issue

Another way of subscribing to an issue is by starring an issue. When you star an issue, you receive e-mail notifications, but your e-mail address does not appear in the CC list and is not visible to other users.

To star an issue:

  1. Open Issue Tracker in your web browser.

  2. Navigate to the issue you want to mark as important to you, or perform a search that returns the issue in search results.

  3. Click the star icon next to the issue title.

  4. Click Starred By Me in the left-hand navigation to view a list of starred issues:
