7.11.3 E-mail Notification

To enable e-mail notification for the Finish activity, you need to specify the e-mail template to use, as well as source expressions for target tokens in the e-mail body.

Table 7-22 E-Mail Notification Settings for the Finish Activity



E-Mail Template

Specifies the name of the e-mail template to use. By default, the Finish activity uses the Provisioning Approval Completed Notification template.

You can edit an e-mail template in Designer. See Editing an e-mail template: for more information.



Specifies the source expressions for target tokens in the e-mail body.

The list of target tokens is determined by the selected e-mail template. You cannot add new tokens, but you can assign values to the predefined tokens by building your own source expressions. At runtime, the source expressions are evaluated to determine the value of each token.

The available target tokens for the Provisioning Approval Completed Notification e-mail template are listed below:

  • TO

  • CC

  • BCC


  • requestStatus

  • requestSubmissionTime

  • requestID

  • recipientFullName

  • initiatorFullName

  • requestTitle

If you use a provisioning request definition template to create your workflow, each token has a default source expression. The default expressions retrieve values from the workflow process (the process object) or from the data abstraction layer (IDVault object). You can modify these expressions to suit your application requirements.

NOTE:When you create a workflow for use with the Resource Request portlet, and you use _default_ as the expression for the TO token, the addressee expression must be an IDVault expression.

For details on building ECMA expressions, see Section 9.0, Working with ECMA Expressions.

NOTE:E-mail notification is only supported when the Notify participants by E-Mail check box is selected on the Overview tab.
