This component is to notify the user of the status of a job. The status can be success or failure. The component can be configured to send email messages with or without attachments associated with the job based on the status of the job. The Email notification can be configured such that it could be sent upon success and/or failure of a job.
The Notification component uses an SMTP server to send notifications. The SMTP server may reside locally on the machine where the process is running or may be located remotely as long as it is accessible to the AutoStore server that is processing the workflow.
