Hi,

I have a requirement to set osgi config properties @programatically. For instance i have created a xml file under config file(email service) with below values

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<jcr:root xmlns:sling="http://sling.apache.org/jcr/sling/1.0" xmlns:jcr="http://www.jcp.org/jcr/1.0" xmlns:nt="http://www.jcp.org/jcr/nt/1.0"

    jcr:primaryType="sling:OsgiConfig"

    debug.email="{Boolean}true"

    from.address=""

    smtp.host="smtp.gmail.com"

    smtp.password="password"

    smtp.port="465"

    smtp.ssl="{Boolean}true"

    smtp.user="mymail@gmail.com"/>

I tried with as MessageGatewayService well, it is taking from address from osgi config but Name is working.

e.g.

email.setFrom("abcd.efg@gmail.com", "Arun Patidar");

I am not sure, if there is any other configuration to work above but if you really want to go with config update then you can use below  code :

-------------------------------------------------------------

Configuration configuration = configAdmin.getConfiguration("com.day.cq.mailer.DefaultMailService");

if (configuration != null) {

// get properties

Dictionary<String, Object> properties = configuration.getProperties();

Dictionary<String, Object> newProperties = properties;

// update properties

        if (properties == null) {

        newProperties = new Hashtable<String, Object>();

        }

       

        newProperties.put("smtp.user", "new user");

        newProperties.put("smtp.password","new pass");

        newProperties.put("from.address", "new from");

configuration.update(newProperties);

// send mail

// revert to old property

configuration.update(properties);

}

Why do you want to set this within Code? eMail configuration should be very static and known upfront. It's a property of the AEM instance (because it relates to the environment the application is running in) and should not be set by code.

What is your usecaes that you want to set these properties by code?

You could use the existing service for this , and provide all the properties from xml like this

If you add more properties, the override this service and add additional fields to this, which again you can use it in your xml

You can set sender info from code by adding keys in map like below as you are using ACS Common.

No need to update osgi config

emailParams.put("senderEmailAddress","abcd@example.com");

emailParams.put("senderName","David Smith");

Email API

Hi,

do you think is it possible for you to use an other approach?

E.g. I think that you could use the MailService with the default file configuration and use API in order to change the sender based on the dialog configuration.

Have a look on the following snippet:

String mydialogSender = getDialogSender();

  Email mail = new HtmlEmail();

  mail = mail.setFrom(mydialogSender);

mail.setCharset("UTF-8");

mail.setSubject(mailSubject);

mail.addTo(emailTo);

mail.setMsg( mailPattern );

mailService.send(mail);

Let us know.

Thanks,

Antonio

I tried this way but the sender mail is getting picked up from osgi config property 'smtp.user'

These properties are system-wide settings. They are not supposed to be changed by a user, but are persistent defaults. If you need to change the source address of an email generated by AEM you can use the methods described by the other responses. But you should never change OSGI configurations with input provided a user.
