Notification templates

Use notification templates to design emails for NIM to send.

To get started, Create a notification template.


Emails are sent using the SMTP server specified in the Mail settings.

What makes notification templates powerful is that you can insert output from Filters, Auditing queries, and Variables. The most common way to use notification templates is to build dynamic reports—email reports whose structure remains constant but whose content changes dynamically. For example, you might create a notification template that reports on new users added to a certain target system during the last month.

Notification templates can be used in several ways:

The recipients of these emails are typically provisioned users themselves, their managers, or you, the NIM administrator.

Attachments are not currently supported.

To check a notification template for errors, run a full Validation.
