|Target Version||2.20.0||Fixed in Version||2.20.0|
|Summary||0025403: $g_notify_new_user_created_threshold_min is ignored on new account creation|
As I read the docs, only accounts with the minimum level set in $g_notify_new_user_created_threshold_min should get the email that a new account was created, however it sends the notice to the person who got the new account. Since I created about 1000 accounts all at once I don't know if it also sent me (the admin) an email notice or not. My understanding is that Mantis should check this variable level prior to sending a new account creation email and only send the message if that account is at least as high as what's in $g_notify_new_user_created_threshold_min
|Steps To Reproduce|
see description above
If this is an incorrect assumption on the part of the program then the documentation needs to be updated or written better to reflect the actual intent of this variable.

Mantis ver 2.18.0
I checked the information for this option in Admin Guide and config_defaults_inc,php and from what I see, the option does exactly what is documented.
Keep in mind, that when talking about
I am pretty sure, your are not talking about the documented notice, but another one.
Feel free to reopen the issue if the new account should get notifications where something like
The word "min" in that variable tells me that the setting is a minimum level to receive emails. Since the new user gets the email, and I have that variable set to ADMINISTRATOR then it stands to reason that a new user account below admin level should not get the email. Here is a sample email they all got:
I need to have Mantis NOT send the customer an email that they just had an account created.
Also: in the description for that variable in the docs, the word "about" is ambiguous and should be changed to "near" or "at least". What does "about the variable setting" mean? Is that some type of local vernacular?
EDIT: not sure how to modify the font size or why it is so big.
I will fix this and change the word to "above".
But still: There is no bug in functionality.
I changed it. It was so big because of the way how Markdown works. https://github.com/adam-p/markdown-here/wiki/Markdown-Cheatsheet
