As a cloud administrator, you can configure vRealize Automation to send users notifications when specific events in Service Broker and Cloud Assembly occur.
You can send notifications for several types of events, called scenarios, such as the successful completion of a catalog request or a required approval.
Email messages are sent to users in the following scenarios.
|Deployment Lease Expired||A deployment lease expired and the deployment is about to be deleted. The message is sent to the deployment owner 15–30 minutes before the deployment is destroyed.|
|Deployment Lease Expiring||A deployment lease expires soon. The message is sent to the deployment owner three days before the lease expires.|
|Deployment Request Approved||A request is approved. The message is sent to the user who requested the deployment.|
|Deployment Request Rejected||A request is rejected. The message is sent to the user who requested the deployment.|
|Deployment Request Waiting for Approval||A request awaits approval. The message is sent to the user who requested the deployment.|
|Pending Approval Request||A request requires approval. The message is sent to the user who must approve the request.|
- Verify that you configured an outbound email server. See Add an email server in vRealize Automation Service Broker to send notifications.
- Log in to vRealize Automation as an administrator.
- Select .
- Select one or more events to trigger user notifications.
When configuring notifications in Service Broker, consider:
- If a user email is changed in Active Directory, it might take at least 15 minutes before the email address is updated in vRealize Automation. In the meantime, notifications might be sent to the old email address.
