Enables notification of expiration (NOE) of content items. This provides email notification to authors and administrators for documents that will be expired in a short time.

  • After enabling the NOE and restarting, an entry is included in the ScheduledEvents DomainHome/ucm/cs/config/activestate.hda file.

  • The include that controls when the NOE runs is set_doevent_for_notification_of_expiration. The NotifyTime parameter described below is used in this include.

  • Note that in the following parameters, NotificationQuery can be set to 30 (not 7, as is the default) and NotificationIntervalInDays can be set to 7; this provides weekly emails about what will expire within the month.

  • The table that defines scheduled events is in the IdcHomeDir/resources/core/tables/std_resources.htm file. The table is named IdcScheduledSystemEvents and the row is named NotificationOfExpiration.

  • To obtain debugging information for the NOE, set the following variables in the config.cfg file and restart the Content Server. Logging goes to the server output:
