E-Mails

Overview

The E-mails page shows a list of e-mails sent from the Matrix42 Software Asset & Service Management system.

The default version of the Matrix42 Software Asset & Service Management provides the following options for sending e-mails:

  • Send E-mail action: allows sending e-mails manually. By default, the Send E-mail action is available for a number of predefined Configuration Items and applications;
  • Compliance Rules: a set of predefined rules and conditions for sending e-mail notifications automatically. Compliance Rules are configured in the Administration application.  For more information about the automatically triggered e-mails see also Service Desk Notifications page and Service Catalog E-mail Notifications.
  • Workflows;
  • Background tasks.

The page displays only those e-mails that are currently available in the system database.

Default configuration

E-mailing is configured in the Administration application → Global Settings → E-mails → Mode:

  • Default mode: Send E-mail option sends e-mails directly to the recipients, therefore, successfully sent e-mails are not stored in the database and consequently are not displayed on the E-mails page. At the same time, Failed or Not Sent e-mails are temporarily stored in the system database (SPSEmailClassBase Data Definition) and are available on the E-mails page.
  • Showing all e-mails: set the "Send E-mail and store it in the Database" option to store and display e-mails with all available statuses (Success, Not Sent and Failed).

E-mails list

To view all messages from the database, navigate to Administration application→ Services & Processes E-mails menu → E-mails:
