Setting up e-mail notifications
You can use e-mail notifications to monitor license validity and user requests for rights.E-mail notifications are configured in the Administration and Monitoring Console.
Notifications can be sent when the following event occur:
- New permission request
A user made a permission request permission request.
- The license is running out of pages
The license has less than the specified percentage of pages left.
- The license will expire soon
The license will expire in the specified number of days.
Note: If you replace a license that is about to expire with another license that will also expire soon, no more notifications will be sent.
Complete the following steps to start the notification service:
- Make sure that the Processing Server is running.
- Open the Administration and Monitoring Console, click Settings → SMTP settings and specify the connection settings for the SMTP server:
- SMTP server
The address of the notification server (e.g. smtp.email.com).
- SMTP port
The port number. By default, port 25 is used for unencrypted connections and port 465 is used for SSL-encrypted connections.
- SMTP login
The name of the mail box that will be used for sending notifications.
The password used for accessing the e-mail server.
- To use SSL encryption, select the Use SSL option.
Note: If the format of the data in the SMTP login field does not match the e-mail address format, change the parameters of the user account which will be used to send out e-mail notifications. This is done by selecting Use other account settings option and filling out the Name and E-mail address fields. In the Name field, type the name of the user to be used in e-mail notifications. In the E-mail address field, type the e-mail address from which e-mail notifications will be sent.
Now when any of the selected events occurs, a notification will be automatically sent to the recipients you specified.
