In addition to the many standard types of notifications that can be enabled, Transport Expresso also allows the configuration of additional ‘Custom Notifications’.
For each notification you wish to send, an entry needs to be put into table /BTI/TE_NOTIF_CU. The field values are described below:
|NOTIFID||A unique identifier for the custom notification|
|NOTIF_NAME||A description of the custom notification|
|NOTIF_HTML||The name of the HTML template for the custom notification||Use transaction SMW0 to copy and update an existing HTML template|
|TARGET LOCATION||If the custom notification is to be triggered when a Transport Form moves into a specific control point, the target and location should be entered||Both the Target and Location fields need to be filled out|
|DEPL_STAT||If the custom notification is to be triggered when a Task reaches a particular Deployment Status, then the status ID should be entered here||Task status IDs can be found in table /BTI/TE_TASKSTAT|
|PLAN_STAT||If the custom notification is to be triggered when a task reached a particular Planning Status, then the status ID should be entered here||Task status IDs can be found in table /BTI/TE_TASKSTAT|
|RECIPIENTS||Determines the recipients for this custom notification||See the recipients table below for details|
|TASK_ROLEID||If the recipients of the custom notification are assigned to a role on the Task, the appropriate ROLEID must be entered here||The Task Role IDs can be found in table /BTI/TE_ROLEU|
The recipients of the custom notification are determined by the value of the RECIPIENTS field in the custom notification table above. The possible values are:
|O||The Transport Form owner|
|T||All testers assigned to the Task|
|N||Users assigned in the system error notification table /BTI/TE_NOTIFUSR for the path which the Transport Form is in|
|R||Users assigned to a particular role on the Task. The role ID must be entered into the TASK_ROLEID field in the custom notification table|
|Y||Users configured in the recipients table /BTI/TE_NOTIF_RE for this custom notification|
The selection-screen of the notification report requires a SAPGUI connection string to be specified, for example: /H/appserver/S/3201 (where ‘01’ refers to the SAP system number). The SAPGUI connection string is needed for e-mail attachments so that a SAPGUI connection can be made to the domain controller SAP system.
For testing purposes, the selection-screen of the notification report also allows for all generated e-mails to be sent to the current user, rather than to the recipients themselves.
