The Run Tool has the capability of notifying you when a project has run successfully or failed. This can be extremely useful to identify quickly if they fail due to changes in the environment (network connectivity, changes in schema etc.)
If you are using the 'Run Tool' for automation you will have to configure an additional step at the end of your project.
In Data Sync go to
Open in Run Tool. This will open the Run Tool and you should see your project listed as the first step.
Tools menu choose 'Options', you will see the Options screen for configuring a SMTP server used to send email. The settings used here are for Office 365.
We now need to add the Email Step. Click
Insert and choose
Send Email Step. This adds a new 'Send Email' Step to the list of steps in the project.
To configure the email to be sent on failure we need to changes some of the configuration settings:
|From||This list who the email should be sent from. For ease of management leaving this as the user you used in the SMTP setup is preferable|
|HTML Body||This setting indicates whether the 'Message' value should be interpreted as HTML and the email sent as HTML formatted.|
|Message||This is the content of the email, in some cases it is a good idea to have a description of why the message as sent.|
|Name||This is just the name of the step in the Run Tool project.|
|Subject||This value is used as the subject in the email.|
|To||This value is the email address to send the email message to.|
|Run Condition||This value is used to decide when the email should be sent.Success : The email is sent when the previous steps where successful. Failure : The email is sent when the previous steps failed.Any : The email will be sent even if there we previous failed or successful steps.|
Run the project by clicking on the
Run button in the task Bar. Each step should now go green if it was successful.
If you have any problems or need more details look at the 'Log' tab.
