Configuring email accounts on the orchestration server

Suggest edit Updated on February 4, 2021

Deployment Manager leverages the Default email account from 5.x version and the DMEmailListener email listener. If you are configuring email accounts for the first time, specify your details for this account in Pega Platform. For more information, see Configuring email accounts for new Deployment Manager installations.

  • Configuring email accounts for new Deployment Manager installations

    For new Deployment Manager installations, on the orchestration server, configure the Default email account so users can receive email notifications for events such as task completion or failure.

  • Configuring email accounts when upgrading Deployment Manager

    If you are upgrading to latest version of Deployment Manager, you must perform certain steps so that you can send email notifications. Default email account is suggested to be used in version 5.x of Deployment Manager that listens to DMEmailListener email listener. If you are using Pega-Pipeline-CD email account, you should switch to the Default email account.

  • Understanding email notifications

    Emails are preconfigured with information about each notification type. For example, when a deployment failure occurs, the email that is sent provides information, such as the pipeline name and URL of the system on which the deployment failure occurred.
