I had a requirement where I needed to send the alert emails to different people based on the interface.In more simple word, for Interface#A I had to send email to firstname.lastname@example.org but for interface#B, I had to send alert email to email@example.com. So basically I had to use CBMA to send email alert but to the different consumer/recipients for different interfaces. So we created the consumer/alert and jobs for Interface#A and repeated the same step for Interface#B.
Here are the steps I performed.
Step1: Create Alert in ID:Assign corresponding objects for which you want to create the alert.In my case, I added one ICO.
Now as we want to create a new consumer to be used here in this alert rule, we do not set the consumer name in the Extended tab. Leave it blank and activate(you may get warning after activation of the rule).
Step2: Now we need to register the new CONSUMER we want to create along with the ALERT RULE we created in Step1.
To do this, go to Service Registry.
Now search for the definition called AlertRuleIn.
Now go to Endpoints tab and click on TEST button.
A new window will be opened.There you need to click on RegisterConsumer service and Next.
On the next page we need to put the exact name of the AlertRule created in ID and the new CONSUMER we want to create.
Once you click on Next, you should be able to see a message in XML like below.
After this step you should be able to see the CONSUMER added to Alert Rule automatically.
Step3(One Off Activity): Now you need to configure Java Mail Client.
NWA>Configuration > Infrastructure > Java System Properties > Services – Java Mail Client.
In properties Tab, provide the mandatory parameters like below.
Step4: Scheduling a task to send the emails using the new alert/consumer we created(step1,Step2) and the Java mail client configured(step3).
Go to NWA> Operations > Jobs > Java Scheduler > Task.
Add a new Task.
Now you need to select the existing consumer job.
Click on Next.Here you can provide a suitable task name.
Click on Next.
Here you need to set properties.
Click on Next.
Here you need to set the start/end time and the frequency at which the Job should run. In my case it is 1 hour.
Then click on Add.
Now click on Finish and you should be able to see the task created.
With this the configuration is completed.
Result: If there any error happened then the recipient should get an email like below.
Now repeat the step1 to Step4 (Except Step3)for Interface#B to generate the alert emails to different set of recipients.
