The TeleMessage module allows Retain to archive those messages. This is different from most modules in that there are no Profiles or Jobs. A REST API collector is connected between the TeleMessage and Retain systems and the data flows into the Retain archive as it created in the TeleMessage system. Data is archived immediately as it enters or is created in the TeleMessage system.
Make sure you have completed the instructions in First, Configure the Retain Server or Router Connection.
Create a REST collector under Server Configuration in the REST Collectors Panel. Export the key and secret and send to your service provider.
Path: Retain Server Manager > > >
The module needs to be enabled on this page to make it active in the Retain system.
The module can be given a name.
The Send Method lets you send TeleMessage items to an external system using FTP or SMTP. In most cases this should be disabled so that items are archived in Retain. To select the SMTP Forwarding or FTP features, you must first add and configure them in the Module Forwarding Tab on the Server Configuration page, otherwise the drop-down list is empty.
To configure the module, all that is required is to enable the Jobs in the module and Save Changes.
The “Enable Jobs” box must be checked to have data archiving functionality.
Save changes and the module is configured. You may need to disable and re-enable "Enable Job" before it will allow you to Save Changes.
The REST connection to the collector needs to configured by the Admin on the TeleMessage system side.
Once the connection is made data will begin to flow into Retain from TeleMessage and will appear in the user's Retain mailbox.
There are no Profiles or actual Jobs associated with this Module. Data flow can be monitored with the Archive Summary by Module report. See Retain 4.9.2: Configuration and Administration.
