Steps to set up e-mail notifications during IBM WCM Workflow

0 comments

In IBM Workplace Web Content Management (IWWCM) you can set up the e-mail notifications during each stage of Web Content Management workflow. This helps the web content author and publisher to know the status of content which needs to be published.

Here are some of the steps required to set up e-mail notification during a Web Content workflow:
  • Make sure that the WCMConfigService.properties file is configured to use your SMTP server.
  • Make sure that the Member Manager user has a valid e-mail address.
In addition to the Info Center steps, you may need to add a username and password if your SMTP server requires authentication.

Step 1:

Check WCMConfigService.properties file under /wcm/shared/app/config/wcmservices folder.

Step 2:

Add default username and default password. See example below:

#SMTP Mail Setup

connect.connector.mailconnector = defaultsmtpserver, defaultfromaddress, defaultreplytoaddress, defaultusername, defaultpassword
connect.connector.mailconnector.defaultsmtpserver= mail.myserver.com
connect.connector.mailconnector.defaultfromaddress= webportalclub@myserver.com
connect.connector.mailconnector.defaultreplytoaddress= webportalclub@myserver.com

#Add these lines:
connect.connector.mailconnector.defaultusername= webportalclub@myserver.com
connect.connector.mailconnector.defaultpassword= mypassword

Step 3:

Restart IBM WebSphere Portal Server for the new settings to take effect.

Note: For the 6.1 server the config file should be under: was_profile_root/PortalServer/wcm/shared/app/config/wcmservices/
