You can configure HPE IDOL Server to automatically email users the results that their agents and channels produce. You can schedule the emailing of agent and channel results and optionally store lists of sent results to prevent the duplication of email.
HPE IDOL Server is configured to email agent and channel results to users by default.
Open the HPE IDOL Server configuration file in a text editor.
[UserCustom]section. This section lists all the custom processes that HPE IDOL Server runs.
Check whether the
[UserCustom] section lists a section for emailing. If it does not, add one. For example:
Create a configuration file section for the emailing process that you listed. For example:
Interval to determine how many times the mailing operation must run, and the time span that you want to elapse between the sending of email. Set
now, so that you can test the mailing operation immediately when you start HPE IDOL Server.
FromName to set the details to display as the sender of email that the mailing operation sends. You can also use
FromNameField to specify a user field that contains the sender details.
XSLTemplate to specify the template to use for the email. The
DefaultEmailResultsType settings allow you to specify the email format and whether to send results individually or in sets.
True to automatically add the documents in the email to the list of documents that the user has viewed. Set
True to exclude documents that the user has recently viewed from the email (so that they receive each result only once).
To include channel results in the email that the mailing operation sends, configure the following parameters:
Users receive channel results only for categories that they subscribe to. You can subscribe a user to one or more categories by sending a
UserEdit action to HPE IDOL Server. Use the
CategorySubscribe action parameter to specify the categories whose results you want to mail to the user. (You can unsubscribe a user by using a
UserEdit action with the
CategoryUnsubscribe action parameter set to the categories whose results must no longer be included in the email to the user.)
Save the HPE IDOL Server configuration file and restart HPE IDOL Server. The mailing operation starts immediately because you set
now. It sends mail to the
TestUser address that you specified. Ensure that the mail process works smoothly.
Make any adjustments to your settings that you need, then save the configuration file again and restart HPE IDOL Server. You can enable
VerboseLogging if you experience problems with the mailing operation.
When you are satisfied with the mailing operation:
Open the HPE IDOL Server configuration file in a text editor. Find the
Delete the email address that you specified for
TestUser, and set
StartTime to the time when you want the mailing operation to start.
Save and close the configuration file. Restart HPE IDOL Server for your changes to take effect.
