Adding a New Subscription

To add a new subscription:

  1. Log in to JD Edwards EnterpriseOne.

  2. In the upper-right corner of the screen, click your login name.

  3. Under the Personalization category, select My Subscriptions.

    With Release 9.2.3, My Subscriptions is located under the Manage Notifications menu.

  4. In Subscription Manager, click Add Subscription.

    All of the available notifications to which you can subscribe are shown in alphabetical order and categorized by whether they are personal, reserved, or shared notifications.

    With Release, you can search for a particular notification name or notification description by typing it in the Search field.

    Note: All of your personal notifications appear in the list, but for shared notifications, you only see the notifications listed that you have view permissions for.
  5. Select the notification to which you want to subscribe. You can hover over the notification to see the notification description before you select it.

  6. In the Configuration section, enter a subscription name. The default value is the notification name. Since you can create multiple subscriptions over the same notification (for example, with different override values), you may want to differentiate the subscription name from the notification.

  7. With Release 9.2.3, you can enter a message heading to differentiate between notification messages when they are received. The message heading appears in the Notification List tab of the Message Center, the Notification Bell drop-down list, Work Center messages, and in emails. It is also a sort option in the Notification List tab in the Message Center.

  8. Select the delivery methods for your notification. You must select at least one of the following:

    • Select Notification List to receive your notifications in the Notification List (bell icon) on the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne menu bar.

      With Release 9.2.3, when you select Notification List, the Category field appears. You can enter anything within the 30-character limit here to categorize your notification messages.

      With Release, there is a drop-down list of available categories if any exist. You can choose from these or enter a new value in the Category field.

      Category is useful because the value you enter here will appear in both the Notification List tab in Message Center and in the Notification Bell drop-down list. You can sort by the category value in the Message Center.

      With Release, click the Share button if you want to save your category for reuse by others.

      Note: The Share button is only available if an administrator has given you access to and the ability to add values in the Category Manager application (P980058). For more information on Category Manager, see Working with Notification Categories in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools Notifications Guide.
    • Select Work Center to receive a message in the Work Center application or receive an email through EnterpriseOne Work Center. You must have Work Center set up properly to use this option.

    • Select Email and enter the email address to have the notification delivered via email. You can enter multiple email addresses separated by a semicolon. If external email has not been allowed by your system administrator, this option does not appear. See Prerequisites.

      You can also use the SMS format for your mobile carrier to have the notification email sent to your mobile device via text message.

      Note: If using SMS to receive text messages, keep in mind that your mobile service provider may charge text messaging fees.
  9. In the Inputs section, you see the notification's inputs and default values.

    Note: Depending on how the notification was defined, this section may be viewable and not changeable.

    If the notification designer has allowed overrides to the notification inputs, you can enter the override values for your subscription. In some cases, the value is required and you must either enter an override value or accept the default value. Before entering the override value, you see a hint in the Override Value field that describes the type of information you need to enter. The override value types you might enter are:

    • Text

    • Number

    • Time in Milliseconds

    • Date in MM/dd/yyyy Format

    • Date in dd/MM/yyyy Format

    • Date in MM/dd/yy Format

    • Date in dd/MM/yy Format

    • Date in yyyy/MM/dd Format

    • Date in yy/MM/dd Format

    • Date/Time in yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss:SSSZ Format

    The format will be validated when you click Save.

  10. The information in the Policy section is dependent on whether the notification output type is a string, number, Watchlist level, or Boolean (true/false). You can find this information by clicking the About Subscription icon in the upper-right corner of Subscription Manager.

    For every output value type, you can select to be notified only once or always. If you select "Only Once" for the Notify Me field, your subscription is deleted after you have been notified once. If you select "Always," you are notified each time the notification runs and meets the criteria (for example, your overrides or other logic that the notification designer included). For the string and number output types, these are the only two options.

    If the output value type is Boolean, you can also select to be notified only if the rules that you define are met. For Boolean, you can define one or more rules that specify to notify you if the boolean value:

    • Changes

    • Changes to True

    • Changes to False

    • Equals True

    • Equals False

    If the output value type is a Watchlist Level, you can also select to be notified only if the rules that you define are met. For Watchlists, you can define one or more rules that specify to notify you if the Watchlist level:

    • Changes

    • Changes to Critical

    • Changes to Warning

    • Changes to Normal

    • Equals Critical

    • Equals Warning

    • Equals Normal

    Use the plus and minus icons to add and delete rules. "Or" logic is used when you add multiple rules, which means you will receive a notification message as long as one of the rules is true.

  11. When you are finished defining your subscription, click the Save icon in the upper-right corner. If you have any errors or warnings, an exclamation point icon appears next to the Save icon and the errors or warnings appear next to the related fields. Correct or review the errors or warnings, and then click Save again. For warning messages about the email format, you can choose to ignore the warning by clicking Save for the second time.

    Your newly created subscription appears in the left column in alphabetical order.
