Notifications


You can configure CData Sync to notify you via email after a job run is completed. Notification emails contain information regarding the overall job run, including the status of each query.

You set notifications for a job, configure an SMTP server connection, and enable notifications for your job, as explained in the following sections.

Enabling Notifications for a Job

To configure email notifications for a job:

  1. Open your job and click the Overview tab.

  2. Click Configure in the Notifications category (in the right pane).

    Note: If you did not set your email server settings previously, Sync opens the Config Email Server Settings dialog box. You must define those settings before you can enable notifications for your job. To do so, click Confirm in the dialog box. Define your email server settings in the Email Server Settings dialog box. Then continue to step 2.

  3. Set the following options in the Notification dialog box:

    • To - The email to which to send notifications.

    • Subject - The subject for notification emails.

    • Only send notifications on errors - An option that you can select to specify that notification emails should be sent only when the job encounters an error. If you do not select this option, Sync sends notifications after each job run.

  4. Click Save to save your notifications configuration.

After you save your configuration, the Notification category on the Overview tab displays the settings that you defined. A blue switch appears to the right of Notification, which means that notifications are enabled. You can toggle that switch to enable or disable notifications. When you disable notifications, the switch is gray.

If you need to modify the notification settings, click the edit icon (shown below in a red square). If you need additional help, click the documentation icon (blue square).

Sending Notifications to a Microsoft Teams Channel

You can send email to a Microsoft Teams channel by using a channel email address in the To field of the mail settings on the Notifications tab in CData Sync. Once the channel email is added to a job, Sync sends alerts to the channel with the results of the job execution.

Note: You need to configure the connection to your SMTP server to enable Sync to send the alerts. Without that connection, Sync cannot send emails.

For details about how to obtain a channel email address for a Teams channel, see Send an email to a channel in Teams.

Sending Notifications to a Slack Channel

You can send email to a Slack channel by using a channel email address in the To field of the mail settings on the Notifications tab in Sync. Once the channel email is added to a job, Sync sends alerts to the channel with the results of the job execution.

Note: You need to configure the connection to your SMTP server to enable Sync to send the alerts. Without that connection, Sync cannot send emails.
