is there a way to route all the email notifications to a common mail box?
In non-prod instances, we want to route email notifications to a common mail box so that these are not delivered any actual users. instead, we would like to login this common mail box and check in case we need to verify any notifications when required.
also, am aware of alternatives like turning off receive email notification on user preferences and JavaClient-> Admin-> Database-> Notifications->disabled.
would also like to know the industry practice.
I just mass-updated everyone’s user email address to my own (or separate email box).
Also consider inactivating most of your users in Test as well. That might make things easier.
But yes, do an import that updates everyone’s email address in the test application so you don’t have to worry about it. You can also consider updating the email address Agile test uses. For instance, while Production is using firstname.lastname@example.org, have your test-database use email@example.com. Something like that.
