The Email Service sends email notifications for business glossaries, scorecards, and workflows. Enable the Email Service to allow users to configure email notifications.
The Email Service sends emails for the following notifications:
Business glossary notifications.
Workflow notifications. Workflow notifications include emails sent from Human tasks and Notification tasks in workflows that the Data Integration Service runs.
The Email Service is associated with a Model Repository Service. The Model repository stores metadata for the email notifications that users configure. Both the Model Repository Service and the Email Service must be available for the Email Service to send email notifications.
The Email Service is highly available. High availability enables the Service Manager and the Email Service to react to network failures and failures of the Email Service. The Email Service has the restart and failover high availability feature. If a Email Service becomes unavailable, the Service Manager can restart the service on the same node or on a back-up node.
