Self-Host: Triggering workflow to topic subscribers doesn't work

Can we solve this problem once and for all? Like @Mei (https://discord.com/channels/895029566685462578/1230090324341166112/1230347369997144136) suggested, there is a variable IS_TOPIC_NOTIFICATION_ENABLED. But in all cases in .env files it is set to true and feature still doesn't work.

I know for a fact that the feature does work if the environment variable is correctly set for the containers running novu. The issue would be that however the docker images are being built isnt setting it to true on the correct images I think(?) that it’s the worker container that eventually evaluates the list of subscribers/topics And notice that the list of files above doesn’t include any non-test env files for worker So that is the likely culprit, the worker image isn’t getting the env variable

I added these variables to non-test .env files. I did run docker compose once again as it is in the docs. But still with the same result. No notifications to the subscribers.

Those env files are baked into the docker images at compile time, changing them in your local repo won’t change what is used by docker compose. I suggest you add an env: entry to the docker compose yml directly The docker compose files provided in the repo all have environment sections already that you can add to

Aren't the .env files used by images in case if they are not defined in the compose?

The images include a copy of the .env file inside them as it was when the image was built by the novu team You could delete every file inside the repository except the docker compose.yml and docker compose would still work, because the compose file tells docker to pull the images from the GitHub docker image repos

Aren't the images built based on the current state of a files in the repo? Ah.. if that's the case.

The docker-compose file is not set up for you to build Novu yourself. It points to the prebuilt images that are hosted on GitHub repos In general that’s the way most docker images will work. A big part of the usefulness of docker is that when you run a docker image, you’re running the exact same thing as everyone else who is using the same 0.x.x image

Got it. Solved Final solution is to add and set environment variable IS_TOPIC_NOTIFICATION_ENABLED: true Inside of a docker-compose.yml file at /docker/local/deployment. Thanks @Mei Thanks @Pawan Jain
