FedMSG Notifications

FedMSG Notifications is a family of systems built to manage end-user notifications triggered by fedmsg, the FEDerated MeSsaGe bus.

It offers a diverse set of notification media including (but not limited to) email, Internet Relay Chat (IRC), and Server-Sent Events (SSE). Users can configure their notification preferences for all these media in a single place.


In a nutshell, here’s the way this application works:

  • You login and set up some preferences in the fmn.web webapp.
  • Events occur in Fedora Infrastructure and are broadcast over fedmsg.
  • This application receives those events and compares them against your preferences. If there’s a match, then it forwards you a notification.

We maintain a lot of applications. Over time, there has been an initiative to get them all speaking a similar language on the backend with fedmsg. Take a look at the list of fedmsg topics to see what all is covered.
