    NOTE: This username appears in the email message.

    passwordPassword of the email account to use.

    rejectUnauthorized
    When set to true, the email server rejects any connection that is not authorized from the list of supported certificate authorities.

You can configure the email address and display name of all emails sent from the Trifacta node.

Steps:

  1. You can apply this change through the Admin Settings Page (recommended) or trifacta-conf.json. For more information, see Platform Configuration Methods.

  2. Edit the following settings:

Test SMTP

  • If it's been enabled, you can reset user password. See Enable Self-Service Password Reset.
  • If email registration validation has been enabled, you can create a new user account to verify that the SMTP server is working.
  • If neither of the above is enabled, you can use an external testing method to verify that the SMTP server is working properly.

Enable Email Notifications

Optionally, you can enable the Trifacta platform to send email notifications on the status of job executions using the configured SMTP server.

NOTE: This feature requires access to an SMTP server to send emails.


Steps:

  1. You apply this change through the Workspace Settings Page. For more information, see Platform Configuration Methods.
  2. Configure the following three parameters:

    ParameterSetting

    Email notifications: on Job SuccessSet this parameter to the default types of jobs that generate emails when they succeed. Default is never.

    Tip: The above defaults can be overridden for individual flows. See below.

    For more information on the available settings, see Workspace Admin Page.

  3. To display correct images and links in the emails, please do the following:
    1. You can apply this change through the Admin Settings Page (recommended) or trifacta-conf.json. For more information, see Platform Configuration Methods.
    2. Locate the following parameter. Verify that its value is set to the host and port number of the Trifacta platform:

      "webapp.hostUrl": "http://example.com:3005"
    3.  Save your changes and restart the platform.

Configure Notifications

You can configure email notifications to be sent based on job executions from individual flows. Non-collaborating watchers can be informed, as well. These settings override the workspace defaults. See Manage Flow Notifications Dialog.
