As part of your pipeline, users can optionally receive notifications through email when events occur. For example, users can receive emails when tasks or pipeline deployments succeed or fail. For more information about the notifications that users can receive, see Understanding email notifications.
For either new Deployment Manager installations or updates, you must configure settings on the orchestration server so that users can receive email notifications. For more information, see Configuring email accounts for new Deployment Manager installations.
Additionally, you can configure Jenkins if you are using Jenkins tasks in a pipeline. For more information, see Configuring Jenkins in 5.3.x.
