In the build notification email (Project Settings | Notification) , I would like to send the link to download the Artifact, so that users can consume the artifact. How can I achieve this ?

    Hi Amit,

    You can have a notification template iterating through all jobs and their artifacts, for example:

    <p>Build artifacts:</p>
            <li><a href="{{url}}">{{fileName}}</a></li>

    Getting this error when I try to download an artifact from old notification email.
    But it works when I go to Build history | Artifacts and download the file.

    {{url}} artifact download URL is temporary and expires in 60 minutes. However, you can replace it with {{permalink}} which will require user to authenticate in AppVeyor.
