Configuring Email Notification for a Dataflow

A dataflow can be configured to send an email notification containing job status information. For example you may want to send an email alert if a dataflow fails. The email notification can contain information such as the flow name, the start and end time, the number of records processed, and more.

Note: A mail server must be configured in Management Console before you can set up notification for a dataflow. See the Spectrumâ„¢ Technology Platform Administration Guide for more information.
