Adding notifications for users

An administrator can add notifications for multiple users. Such users may never log in to GPOADmin, but for business reasons, may need to be notified when an object is created, modified, or deleted.

Administrators can also copy notification settings from one user to other users or merge new notification settings with existing ones.

Right-click the Forest node and select Notification Manager.

Selecting events on which to be notified

Using the notification option you can set up to receive an email each time a specified action is performed within the Version Control system.

Select Notifications.

Restricting inheritance on notifications

If required, you can select to restrict the inheritance on notification settings from the Version Control root to child containers and objects.

Select the Notifications tab.
Click to enable the Block inheritance option.

Creating email templates

You can create a custom email template for notifications or email requests (if this option is enabled, see Configuring the Version Control server) and associate it with specific roles. This allows you to standardize the information that is presented to users based on their role within your organization.

You can choose to include attachments and custom subject lines for specified version control actions. For example, you can easily include forms used to track change requests in an external system, risk assessment checklist, or logs in the email.


For example, to ensure that the Watcher Service or server name does not display in the notification message, remove the following section from the template html file:



The keyword MACHINENAME specifies the computer where Watcher Service is running.

GPOADmin includes a sample template (DefaultNotificationTemplate.html) in the server installation directory. This file should not be moved or modified; however, you can use it as a basis for the creation of new templates.

Select Delegation | Roles, select the require role, and click View Role.
Select the Email Template tab.
Click Browse to select the template to use for the selected role.
If there are no templates displayed, click Add and browse to where the templates are located. The default template is located at C:\Program Files\Quest\GPOADmin.
To select an attachment to include in the email, select the Attachments tab, click Add, select the action that triggers the attachment inclusion from the list, select the attachment to include by entering its location or browsing to it, and apply the changes.
To include a subject in the email, select the Subject Lines tab, click Add, select the required action, enter the text that you want included in the Subject Line field, and apply the changes.
Click Apply to associate the template.
