Getting emails for all vzdump backups now, regardless of status

Jan 24, 2020
I have a couple backups configured in Proxmox (going to PBS). Both of them have "On failure only" set for Notify. Up until now this worked fine, I only get emails when something fails. All of a sudden, as of yesterday, I have been getting notifications for all backups including successful ones (which is like %90+ of the time). I tried changing the Notify setting to "Notify always" and saving, then changing the setting back to "On failure only" but I still continue to get emails for successful backups.

Am I missing something, or is this possibly a bug in the new version of pve-manager (currently running 8.0.9)?

Same here, was just about to post the same thing. Only started after the upgrade to 8.0.9 for me. They added a new "Notification" section under "Datacenter" so maybe that has something to do with it?
