Do I get email notification if there is Runtime error while my script is running live?

In Quantopian, One receives e-mail message if algorithm stops during some Runtime error. Is there anything like this on Quantconnect, is it automatic or do i have to add something in script?

Yes. Since your script can crash it's good that surrounding code handles this.

Live Algorithm Error

Hello XXX,

Sorry your live algorithm had a runtime error in project 'YYY'. It has been stopped but your positions may still be open! You should inspect your brokerage, code and restart your algorithm. 


Thank Petter,

So do I have to add something, how do I ensure that?


The crash notification is there always so you don't have to do anything.

You can also send custom notifications via code (I think it's called NotificationManager), that doesn't help if script crashes though.
