Tutorial 10: Sending Messages to Other Users

Messages inform other users of any activities that may affect them. A message includes the message text and message details. It can also have a severity level to indicate the overall impact of the activity that is about to take place.

The objectives of this tutorial are to introduce Message Associations and Script Functions. Use Message Associations in your application to set the desired message text and details. Script Functions can reference this information to send messages when invoked.

The tasks you complete in this tutorial are:

Follow Step 1 through Step 5 to create another Message Association with the following definitions:
Name: Error Association
Level: Data (Message Level: Error)
Text: "Error" for locale "en"
Details: "This is an error message" for locale "en"

The Message Associations are created. The next step of the tutorial is to create a Script Function that takes these Message Associations as input, and send messages when invoked.
