Is there a way to use a notification when a job fails etc. only on CERTAIN workflows? The setup as I see it is to notify in all instances of (for example) a preflight failure in any Workflow.
My customer only wants to be notified of failures in specific workflows. Is that possible?
Another (simpler) alternative:
- enable notifications for preflight errors
- disable notifications for preflight warnings
- build the preflight profiles to use either warnings or errors depending on whether the customer wants notifications for that particular preflight check
sorry to post in an old thread but my question relatates to this...
What CLI email client do you recommend? I'm messing around with blat http://www.blat.net/ and trying to figure out how I can pass the job related variables to the client...
Thanks for your time,
Passing job variables should be pretty simple:
Add the following to the parameters
-to email@example.com -subject "blat subject here" -body "this is my message" -server xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -f firstname.lastname@example.org
You should be able to use $FFxxx$ variables anywhere in that string.
Are there any plans in future builds to have the notification capabilities that Process Manager has added to FFCORE so that setting up a CLI email client would not be necessary?
Can't really discuss planned FFCore functionality in a public forum. However, I do understand that FFProM had this funcitonality and that it is something that customers would like to use.
The notification side of things in FFCore is so wring compared to FFProdM.
It feels like FFCore was built for the end user and not for the system (if that made sense).
Having defined notifications is so critical to our operation.
Having preflight checks fail, I shouldn't need to rely on third party apps like Blat or having to create scripts, to notify my graphic arts team of this issue.
Please build beter notifications in new upgrades.
You should be able to enable notification for relevent preflight events in the Notifications settings.
This shoud send emails to all selected users when a relevant preflight event occurs in any workflow.
Can you elaborate on what you would like to see?
