Automation of failed process chain e-mail notification – Selective chains
Automated notification needs to send the list of “failed” status process chains to the required e-mail IDs.
Automatic notification is used to send the list of “failed” status process chains to the required e-mail IDs. This is very useful for monitoring the process chain. In case of failure, mail will be sent to the support team and necessary action can be taken immediately.
This automation will reduce the manual intervention for monitoring.
