Filter notifications (e.g. per branch)

CI notifications good. Too many notifications bad.

We use a feature branching workflow. On TeamCity we have HipChat configured to only notify us when the master branch breaks, on the basis that other branches are expected to break. It's only when master breaks that we all need to know and jump on it.

    Is this feature planned? I would be really glad if i have this option, otherwise i have to duplicate a lot of yml config into another file :(

    Hi Peter,

    Can you please explain how you do this now with duplication? Probably you use Conditional build configuration with everything, but notifications duplicated, right?

    Bumped priority of this issue. No ETA but should be available in visible feature.

    Hi Ilya,

    I havent actually done it yet, the idea was to duplicate the whole yml file into say appveyor-features.yml and appveyor.yml first will be used by one project and will only build my feature branches, the second one will be very similar, but will build only the master branch. Both ymls will be pretty similar, the only differences will be the build branch filter and nofications (i want to have more aggresive notifications when master is failing).
    The same thing could be done by conditional build configuration as you mentioned, but frankly this will give me only a small benefit. I don't need to have two projects, but still the yml will be double the size with many parts duplicated.
