Deploy-to-bitrise-io: group is not getting notified


Bitrise Build Issue Report template

Description of the issue

I have a deploy-to-bitrise-io step which is supposed to notify testers group which my user is in. Yet after a build succeeded I hadn’t received any emails from Bitrise, here an excerpt from my build log:


| (1) deploy-to-bitrise-io@1.7.1                                               |

In the team settings, I can see that I have myself added as a tester:


Where did the issue happen? (Xcode 10.3 stack)

Which build Step causes the issue and which version of the step?



  • Does a “Rebuild” help? (You can trigger a rebuild from the Build’s page, by clicking the “Rebuild” button in the top right corner of a finished build) : NO
  • Does a rebuild without caches help? (You can remove the Cache:Pull and Cache:Push steps temporarily to not to use the cache, or you can delete all the caches on the Settings tab of the app. : NO
  • Does the issue happen sporadically, or every time? : Every time
  • Does upgrading the build Step to the latest version help? : NO
  • When did the issue start? : First time I’m trying it

Hi @nderkach-toptal,

So, “notification” could be a misleading word here, since what the step does is sending you e-mail for public install pages, created for your APKs and IPAs.

This build didn’t generate any apps, so there is no install page and therefore no e-mail sent to you either.



It would be great to have notifications work for any artifact type. The usecase I have is a workflow that generates app screenshots, for example - I’d like to notify designers once new screenshots are available.



@nderkach-toptal There are default build notifications sent by the website on success/failed/or based on both results, depending on your settings that can be effectively used to communicate this.
