GroundWork Monitor allows you to send email notifications with modern email services such as Gmail or Office 365, as a TLS compliant client. These instructions will walk you through the steps of setting up this client with the NoMa notification manager.
What you'll need:
- A service user email account to authenticate and send email on the service (e.g., Gmail account)
- An app password for the user account
- Outbound network access on port 587 or similar port (usually open if you use one of these hosted email services)
Configuring TLS compliant client with NoMa
Log in to the command line on your GroundWork 8 server, and go to the
gw8.envfile and add the following lines:
smtp.mymail.com:587is your email service endpoint and port,
email@example.com the service user email account, and
myapppasswordis the app password.
Restart the NoMa daemon after making this change to have the system pick up the new configuration:
To test, enter the following from the command line:
firstname.lastname@example.org the service account, and
email@example.com an email account you have access to. You should see the test email arrive within a few minutes. If you have something other than a message on the screen with email sent successfully, please correct the issue before proceeding.
Restart the NoMa daemon:
At this point, you should be able to configure contacts in the NoMa notification screens, and see email coming through when notifications are triggered.
