Delegated Administration Quick Start : Configure email settings for administrators
Configure email settings for administrators
Delegated Administration | Web Protection Solutions | v8.4.x, v8.5.x | 30-Nov-2018
Each administrator account configured on the Global Settings page is required to have an associated email address. The email address is used to optionally notify administrators that they have been given administrative access to one or more modules of the Security Manager. It is also used for password recovery.
To enable email notifications and password recovery, provide SMTP information in the Security Manager. If you performed this step during installation, you do not need to repeat the configuration.
To configure SMTP settings:
1.
Go to the Global Settings > Notifications page in the Security Manager.
2.
Enter the IP address or host name and the Port of a valid SMTP server in your network.
3.
Enter the Sender email address that will appear in notifications.
4.
Optionally, enter a Sender name to appear with the From email address. This is useful to make it clear to administrators that the email is related to the Security Manager.
5.
*
New Account notifies administrators of their new administrator account. By default, this includes the new logon name and password, and a summary of the permissions allocated to the administrator.
*
Edit Account notifies administrators of any changes to their Security Manager account, such as a password or permissions change.
*
Forgot Your Password confirms to administrators using the password recovery feature that their password has been reset. By default, this includes a temporary password and password expiration details.
Each template contains default text that you can use or modify, and includes some available variables. At the time the email is sent to the administrator, these variables are replaced either with user-specific data or with values configured elsewhere in the system. Variables are always surrounded by percentage symbols, such as %Username%.
