A workflow process often sends e-mail notifications at various points in the course of its execution. For example, an e-mail might be sent when a user assigns a workflow activity to a new addressee.
Before you can take advantage of the e-mail notification capabilities of Identity Manager, you need to configure the SMTP e-mail server. To do this, you need to use thetask within the Workflow Administration role in iManager.
NOTE:This task is a shortcut to thetask under the Passwords role.
To configure the e-mail server:
Select the Identity Managercategory in iManager.
Click on thetask.
iManager displays the Email Server Options panel.
Type the name (or IP address) of the host server in thefield.
Type the e-mail address for the sender in thefield.
When the recipient opens the e-mail, this text is displayed in thefield of the e-mail header. Depending on your mail server settings, the text in this field might need to match a valid sender in the system in order to allow the mail server to do reverse lookups or authentication. An example is email@example.com instead of descriptive text such as The Password Administrator.
If your server requires authentication before sending e-mail, select thecheck box and specify the username and password.
When you are finished, click.
