A Forum reader recently asked this question:

“I want to trigger mail using Manual task driver based on value chage in a specific attribute. Is this possible?”

And here’s the response from Jeff Johnson …


Here is how I send email for any status other than success. I put this on the output transformation …

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><policy>
	<description>This policy sends email in event of a transaction without a SUCCESS code.</description>
		<description>Email the status</description>
		<comment xml:space="preserve">If the status level does not equal
		SUCCESS, send an email alert to</comment> <comment
		name="author" xml:space="preserve">Jeff Johnson</comment> <comment
		name="version" xml:space="preserve">1.0</comment> <comment
		name="lastchanged" xml:space="preserve">08-05-04</comment> <conditions>
				<if-operation op="equal">status</if-operation> <if-xpath
			<do-send-email server="" type="text">
				<arg-string name="to">
				<arg-string name="subject">
					<token-text xml:space="preserve">IDM ALERT</token-text>
				<arg-string name="message">
					<token-xpath expression="@level"/>
					<token-text xml:space="preserve"> has occurred on </token-text>
					<token-xpath expression="object-dn"/>
