Customize Email Template for workflow notification in AEM6.5.13

Avatar

Level 2

We are trying to customize the email template that triggers on workflow notifications, there are few issues that we have observed:

  1. The default email template that triggers on workflow notification is at - /libs/settings/workflow/notification/email/default/en.txt. When we try to overlay it in apps - /apps/settings/workflow/notification/email/default/en.txt - it only triggers the overlay'd email template when we restart the com.day.cq.cq-mailer bundle.
  2. Also, when the server restarts it starts picking up the old template at /libs/settings/workflow/notification/email/default/en.txt
  3. Sometimes, some other email template gets triggers whose content is little different

Is there any additional steps that we need to do for customizing email template?

I would suggest to open a support case with Adobe.

There might be a file in the filesystem that is used when AEM is restarted.

Hi,

1. Yes this is expected behaviour 

2. Could you please check if there is any cache?

 

 

You can also try something like https://aemlab.blogspot.com/2019/06/aem-custom-templated-email.html

Thanks for your quick response @arunpatidar  But there is no cache. 

 

We do not want to create a custom process step to send an email as we are using OOTB workflow at the moment. 

Is there anything that we should keep it mind ? For me - the overaly'd email template should work when we restart the AEM server but this is not working as expected.

Hey,

I have literally the same issue and after raising an Adobe support ticket I didn't get any way to fix it.
Did you have any luck with that?
was there a remedy?
