For an overview of AutoTasks and their syntax, see AutoTasks
An Autotask can be configured to send a notification email once its match criteria are met. This is achieved by the use of the notifications component. In the example below, when an asset is uploaded into NetX, a notification email using the email template assetImportReport.tpl will be sent to the email address associated with all of the users included in the group named Import admins.
<task name="Notification on import">
<criteria type="action" value="import"/>
<notify emailTemplate="assetImportReport.tpl" groupName="Import admins" type="email"/>
Only one recipient parameter can be used per AutoTask when adding a notification component, e.g. you may use address or groupName or user, but cannot combine any of these parameters with the other two.
The notification type is always email. The following parameters specify both the email's recipient(s) as well as the email template sent to any recipients. Both a recipient and an email template parameter are required.
Value options: Name of an existing email template
The value of this parameter must correspond to a valid email address. Events that trigger the task's match criteria will send a notifying email to the specified address. This parameter cannot be used in conjunction with either groupName or user parameters.
Value options: email address
This parameter defines which NetX users will receive a notification once the task's match criteria have been met, by using an existing group name as its value. This parameter cannot be used in conjunction with either address or user parameters.
Value options: NetX group name
This parameter defines the user who will receive a notification once the task's match criteria have been met. This parameter cannot be used in conjunction with either address or groupName parameters.
