Administration → System Administration → Configuring Email Notifications → Configuring Notification Schemes
Deployment Automation relies on LDAP and an associated email server to send notifications. You must set up LDAP prior to configuring notifications. Notification recipients are defined with the security system's LDAP integration. See Security Administration.
Deployment Automation requires an external SMTP mail server to send notifications. For information about configuring a mail server, see System Administration.
Notification schemes define what events should generate notifications and who should get them. When setting up notification schemes, to determine which users will receive notifications, you select the triggering events and the role. For example, it is common for an administrator or environment owner to be notified when a work item, as part of the approval process, has been generated.
You can configure the default scheme and set up additional schemes as needed for your implementation. You should select the template to use based on the reason for the notification and the recipients of the notification.
To configure a notification scheme:
|Name||Specify a name for the scheme.|
|Description||Specify a description for the scheme.|
|Attach Logs||Select this to include a log file attachment for each target that shows the success or failure status of each step.|
|Attachment maximum before archival||Specify the number of logs to attach before the logs are compressed into an archive.|
To edit or add notification entries, select the notification scheme.
|Type||Select an event type for which to send notifications. The
event type is typically determined by the type of recipient. For example, a
deployment engineer would be interested in being notified about a failed
deployment (Process Failure).
Available types are:
|Target||Select notification targets:
|Role||Select a role to be notified. Each user who is assigned the
selected role will receive an email.
Note: The role corresponds to those set in Role Configuration. See Creating and Editing Roles.
|Template Name||Select a notification template name.|
