To configure the Email notification functionality, follow the instructions in the Administration Guide, Chapter 13 "Email Notifications".
To enable email notification specifically for failed Tasks/Events:
From the CA Identity Manager installation folder:
- Windows: C:\Program Files\CA\ IAM Suite\Identity Manager\tools\emailTemplates
- UNIX: <home_directory>/CA/ IAM Suite/Identity Manager/tools/emailTemplates
Copy the invalid folder to the application server folder <IdentityMinder.ear>\custom\emailTemplates
This new deployed (invalid) directory contains one or more email templates. When a task or event occurs for which email is enabled, if this Task/Event failed, CA Identity Manager searches the appropriate template directory (in this case the invalid folder) for a template name that is the same as the name of the task or event. If such a template cannot be found, CA Identity Manager uses the default template in the directory in the invalid folder.
