Notifier: Create a file

Hi

I see there is a different notifiers,but

is it possible to get Dejal SImon to create a txt file as notifier ?
(the txt file should i.e contain:
{TestName} <{TestURL}> failed at {TestLastFailureTime} on {TestLastFailureDate}. )

Regards

Re: Notifier: Create a file

The closest Simon could do at present would be to email that text to yourself.

Though, you may be able to use a Report to do this, too - it'd always write the file, but it could include whether it was a success or failure. Reports don't have to be HTML; there are templates to do RSS or tab-delimited files, and you can easily create new templates.

In Simon 2.3, I want to extend the Script service to all it to be used as a notifier, too, which would allow custom notifiers like you want.

Notifier.

Okay, I dont want do use the mail feature, because if the mail server are down no notifier are sent.
One could send a mail from the Mac where Simon are running and then
set op a action to extract the text and send it as a SMS.

I made a work-a-round for sending the notifier as sms for now, but a 'notifier as txt file' feature would be nice.
