Email Notification template

Avatar

Level 1

Hi, 

When I am trying to send the email notification template in a workflow, it always points towards 

/libs/settings/workflow/notification/email/default/en.txt  template but it is not a good practice to make any changes in libs if I have to modify the template. 

Could anyone help me know is there any other way that how to customize the new email template and redirect workflow towards it ?

You are right, in cloud setup EMailNotificationService implementation has changed a bit. So overlay could work in AEM as a Cloud Service, but for on-prem version 6.5 and 6.4 it will not, due to the reason I have described in my previews message.

You can overlay it under /apps and workflow would automatically pick anything under /apps over /libs (If cloud impl ) . E.g. for asset expiry notification we overlayed /libs/settings/dam/notification/email/default/com.adobe.cq.dam.asset.expiry.prior/en.txt to 

/apps/settings/dam/notification/email/default/com.adobe.cq.dam.asset.expiry.prior/en.txt and added our own text/html.

Hi @khasinaparveen,

According to the official documentation:

Template for email workflow notification can be changed only under /libs. Overlay of /libs/settings/workflow/notification/email/default/en.txt will not work because com.day.cq.workflow.impl.email.EMailNotificationService which is responsible to sent an email has hardcoded path to /libs/settings/workflow/notification/email/default.

Alternatively you can try to extend EMailNotificationService and change location of template to use your custom location.

Okay , we did use it recently and it worked for us (on cloud) , you may want to check that.

Yes Exactly. In AEM as a cloud it worked. But, for 6.5 no overlay was working. Had to edit the template under /libs.

Thank you.

khasinaparveen which version of AEM are you using. If cloud , you can overlay the the default template and if on 6.5 you need to write your own service as discussed above.
