JBPM3 mail configuration

From OpenKM Documentation
Jump to: navigation, search

The jBPM configuration file is located at $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/OpenKM/WEB-INF/classes/jbpm.cfg.xml. If you edit this file, you will see something like this:

  <string name="jbpm.mail.smtp.host" value="smtp.your-domain.com " />
  <string name="jbpm.mail.from.address" value="noreply@your-domain.com" />
  <string name="resource.mail.templates" value="jbpm.mail.templates.xml"/>
  <bean name="jbpm.mail.address.resolver" class="com.openkm.workflow.AddressResolver" singleton="true"/>

Nota clasica.png In OpenKM 6.2.x you can also configure jBPM by creating a file $TOMCAT_HOME/jbpm.xml. If still using OpenKM 5.1.x, the right path is $JBOSS_HOME/jbpm.xml.

Nota clasica.png In older OpenKM installations with JBoss, the path is $JBOSS_HOME/server/default/deploy/OpenKM.war/WEB-INF/classes/jbpm.cfg.xml

As with the Tomcat mail configuration, you have to edit a couple of properties:

  • jbpm.mail.smtp.host: this is the host where your mail server is located. Can be localhost if you have a local mail server installed (like Postfix). Typically the same value as mail.smtp.host in the Tomcat mail configuration.
  • jbpm.mail.from.address: all the mails sent by OpenKM will be from this email address. Can be in the form of noreply@your-domain.com. Typically the same value as mail.from in the Tomcat mail configuration.

jBPM will notify you when a task has been assigned to you or when it wants to send you a reminder. The email templates are defined in the file jbpm.mail.templates.xml which is located in the same place as the jBPM configuration file. Here you can define a more elegant mail message.
