7 Configuring Email Notifications and Distribution Lists

This section contains the following topics:

7.1 Using Email Notifications/ Email Distribution Lists

Users can create e-mail distribution lists so that the list members are automatically copied on certain e-mail notifications that are generated as part of the asset registration process. Distribution lists can help automate the asset registration workflow because members of the distribution list are notified about asset registration events that the list owner is involved in as an asset reviewer or approver. For example, if a list owner is expecting to be absent, they can "delegate" asset review and approval responsibility by adding other authorized users to their e-mail distribution list.

Distribution lists are created on a user's MyStuff -> Configuration Options -> Manage Email Notifications page. Existing Oracle Enterprise Repository users can be selected for a distribution list, as well as external e-mail addresses, but only if that option is permitted by the Oracle Enterprise Repository administrator.

To receive e-mail notification when a new version of an asset is created, you need to enter the system setting with the e-mail address.

In the Notifications section, enter the email address in the System Registrar Email field, as shown in Figure 7-1. Click Save to save the settings.
