Depending on your role, you can choose how to support notifications and whether you want to receive them.

The following high-level overview describes the process for configuring notifications:

  1. Configure an outbound email server to send notifications. See Add a Tenant-Specific Outbound Email Server. If your system administrator configured a default outbound server and you need to configure your own, see Override a System Default Outbound Email Server.

  2. (Optional) Configure an inbound server so that users can complete tasks by responding to notifications. See Add a Tenant-Specific Inbound Email Server. If your system administrator configured a default inbound server and you need to configure your own, see Override a System Default Inbound Email Server.

  3. Select the vRealize Automation events to trigger user notifications. See Configure Notifications.

  4. (Optional) Each user must subscribe to notifications before they can receive the notifications that you configured. See Subscribe to Notifications.
