  • You dont need to add all the users as subscribers.

    It's easier:

    • Create a notification template which contains the subject and text of the mail you like to send
    • Go to Workflow -> Configuration -> Incident Event Workflow Configuration -> Properties
    • Add a new workflow -> Name as you like (e.g. Notification to Affected User New Incicent is created)
    • Check for events "When an incident is created" (workflow will start if a new incident is created) or "When an incident is updated" (workflow will star if the inicdent is update, like status changed to resolved/closed)
    • Choose/create a Management Pack you like to store the information of this workflow
    • Choose criterias if you like (for instance "if status changed from active to resolved or closed" if you choosed "When an incident is updated")
    • Do not apply a template
    • Select People to Notify -> Enable notification -> pick Affected User from the list -> pick your message template from the list -> Add
    • Next -> Create

    Done
