Hey guys, I’m just having a play around with ignitions alarm notification. So far ive been going through inductive university’s video/ maual courses.
I’ve set up my pipeline to get an alarm notification via email…however i’m not fully versed in the SMTP concept… I’ve only followed the instructions of these videos and the forum http://www.plctalk.net/qanda/showthread.php?t=107121 , to get a better sense of it. I now have 2 email alarm notif profiles with the following configurations:
Gmail alarm email profile with: hostname: smtp.gmail.com Port: 465 Enable SSL/ TLS: TRUE Username: *my gmail firstname.lastname@example.org Password: random one Advanced properties, STARTTLS Enabled: TRUE ignition example alarm profile with: host name: smtp.inductiveautomation.com Port: 25 Enable SSL/ TLS: FALSE Username: Ignition Password: random one Advanced properties, STARTTLS Enabled: FALSE
What else would I need to make this work? i mean, do i need to download a software like for the sms profile or would i be good to go? As Im not receiving any emails
Apologies for the lack of knowledge here, i’m just taking each day as it comes haha.
Thank you all!
P.S. for more info, my pipeline is trying to send it to my personal gmail, with a user profile with an ALWAYS schedule and my actual email address. 5 second delay block on the pipeline then a notification block but then thats all. And im also able to ping smtp.gmail.com from my host and VM
