Configuring E-mail Notifications for Discussions

In order for users to receive email notifications when they are mentioned in a discussion, an administrator must do the following:

  1. On the Atlas Hub installation server, navigate to C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\Hub\starteamserver-configs.xml.
  2. Open the starteam-server-configs.xml file in a text editor.
  3. Add <option name="ALMServiceURL" value="hostname:portnumber"/> to the file.
    Important: Ensure that you specify an external facing host name rather than localhost or 127.0.0.1.
  4. Save and close the file.
  5. Open your server configuration in the Atlas Hub Server Administration tool.
  6. Check Enable e-mail support.
  7. Type your SMTP server information and the TCP/IP endpoint in the appropriate fields.
  8. Check Enable e-mail notification.
  9. Restart your server.
  10. In Atlas/Rhythm, add email addresses to user profiles.
    Note: Email notification will not work unless users have added their email address to their profiles in Atlas/Rhythm.

    Each user must log into their account before the changes take effect.
