Enabling, Disabling, and Recycling the Email Service

Enabling, Disabling, and Recycling the Email Service

You can enable, disable, and recycle the Email Service from the Administrator tool.
By default, the Email Service is disabled. Enable the Email Service when you need to allow users to generate emails based on Human tasks in a workflow or changes to the Business Glossary. When you enable the Email Service, a service process starts on the node designated to run the service. The service is available to send emails based on the notification properties that users configure.
You might disable the Email Service if you need to perform maintenance. You might recycle the Email Service if you connect to a different Model Repository Service.
When you recycle or disable an Email Service, you must choose a mode to recycle or disable it in. You can choose one of the following options:
  • Complete. Wait for all subtasks to complete.
  • Stop. Wait up to 30 seconds for all subtasks to complete.
  • Abort. Stop all processes immediately.
Optionally, you can choose to specify whether the action was planned or unplanned, and enter comments about the action. If you complete these options, the information appears in the
Events
and
History
panels in the
Domain
view on the
Manage
tab.

To recycle the service, select the service in the Domain Navigator and click
