How does Mute interact with other subscription types in the official slack plugin?


(Dave McClure) #1

With the official slack plugin, when you do the following, it’s not clear what behavior to expect:

/discourse watch foo
Watched category foo

/discourse watch bar
Watched category bar

/discourse mute all
Muted all categories on this channel

At this stage, the admin plugin settings show three rows:

  1. Foo, #my-channel, All posts and replies
  2. Bar, #my-channel, All posts and replies
  3. All categories, #my-channel, Muting

When in this state, what should happen when a post is made in the Foo category?

If Mute overrides other settings, than I think I want to be able to “Unmute” All categories in this example (or maybe more generally delete a particular subscription from the slack command)

Alternatively, if the settings were:

  1. Bar, #my-channel, Muting
  2. All categories, #my-channel, All posts and replies

What should happen when a post is made in the Bar category?

As per my understanding of existing message sending code

Yes. Mute overrides other settings.


I guess we should have something like below


May be we have problem here. It may still send message to #my-channel.

I think we should come out from loop instead of moving to next record in this condition. Particularly when i[:filter] == 'mute'. Am I right @tgxworld?
