There are many ways to configure alerts in JAMS. Email alerts are a common type. First, ensure that the SMTPServer Configuration value has been defined in the Contact Configuration settings under the Configuration Shortcut.
To apply email notifications across the JAMS Environment, define an email address(es) under Configuration>DefaultNotifyEmail. Multiple e-mail addresses may be included using a comma-separated list.
It is also possible to define Notification Emails at the Folder Level. Any emails defined at the Folder level will be inherited to any Jobs or Sub-Folders below.
Lastly, a notification email can be specified at the Job level.
The following Property Types are available in any Send E-mail Alert:
- Events: This contains a listing of events that should set off the e-mail alert.
- E-Mail: In this section, the email alert is constructed by defining a recipient and sender in the To Address and From Address fields respectively. The alert can be customized by modifying the Subject and Message Body of the email. Notice that there are JAMS parameters parsed within the Subject field of any pre-configured Send e-mail Alert.
- These Parameters are Native JAMS Variables that are automatically parsed by JAMS
- Status: When enabled, the Send e-mail Alert is active and will cause E-mail alerts to send.
A Send e-mail Alert may be set at any folder, including the root folder, and will be inherited by subsequent folders and Jobs.
