Who receives Apex exception mails?

Knowledge Article Number 000170712

Is there a way to change who receives APEX exception mails?


Salesforce sends two types of notification mails when potential issues with APEX code are detected:

  • APEX warning mails, which are sent when a class or trigger exceeds 50% of an APEX governor limit
  • APEX exception mails, which are sent when an unhandled exception occurs in a trigger or class


  1. Configure email addresses that receive emails when your Apex code encounters unhandled exceptions. Previously, these emails were sent only to the developer who’d last modified a failing class or trigger. Now you can also notify users of your Salesforce org and arbitrary email addresses.
  2. Unhandled exception emails are sent by default to the developer specified in the LastModifiedBy field on the failing class or trigger. In addition, you can have emails sent to users of your Salesforce org and to arbitrary email addresses. To set up these email notifications, from Setup, enter Apex Exception Email in the Quick Find box, then select Apex Exception Email. You can also configure Apex exception emails using the Tooling API object ApexEmailNotification.
