Requesting an email

  • Go to maniphest’s advanced search and complete your query, copy the url.
  • Fill out [2] and state your email
  • Someone with access may process the request (add them to the <frequency>.csv file)
  • Watch your inbox and wait.

Setting up a new cron

  1. Create a new file with the people to be notified on that schedule.
  2. Type 'crontab -e' and add a line for the relevant time to trigger the command 'python3 <file>'

Triggering a manual run

To manually run the tool, simply become it and type 'python3 <file>'

  • For weekly and monthly runs, the simple 'weekly' and 'monthly' shorthand may be used instead of <file>
