I've setup the following config:

on which there is on_build_status_changed: true

I'm always receiving a build notification no matter if it's failure or success.
What should be the correct config so I only get notifications if the build breaks (considering that it has been successful before) and when it's back to success after that failure?

    Hi José,

    Maybe you have also notification settings in UI? Notifications from UI and YAML are being merged.

    I don’t have anything set on the UI.
    Moreover I don’t think there is any UI configuration for Slack…

    UI configuration exists for every notification provider supported by AppVeyor. Please double-check it under settings > notifications for your project. Anyway, please try to add the flowing to your notification settings:

      on_build_success: false
      on_build_failure: false

    Hi IIya,

    That did it.

    Suggest that the need for the 3 settings is stressed in the documentation to save frustrations.

    Thanks again!

    Welcome :) I believe that this is stressed here. Though my favorite way to have correct YAML is do basic things in UI and then press Export YAML.
