Notification Configuration

To use Notification Triggers in Pleasant Password Server, you can:

1. Define Trigger(s)

Triggers are combinations of events that could fire. They can be re-used when setting up Notifications in Entries/Folders. There are two Triggers setup by default:

    Default Notification Triggers

Adding Triggers

You can add new Triggers, grouping similar action types (for example, the following Triggers). Or perhaps you will like to combine them differently and create other unique combinations.

New Notification Trigger

(Only values shown are true, rest are false)

           

                         

Editing Triggers

Allows changing the name and selecting which events will notify the Recipients.

Deleting Triggers

Notification Triggers that are currently In Use cannot be deleted.

2. Setup Notifications

Notifications are activated by the action of a Triggering Role/User on an Entry or Folder. The Notification email is then sent to Recipient Roles/Users.

Note: Notifications setup on folders will be inherited by all its entries and subfolders.

Multiple Notifications for the same Entry/Folder

You can create multiple Notification Triggers that activate based on different Triggers.

Recipients will only receive one email for a single action on an entry/folder, even if they are included in more than one activated trigger. The emails will be combined and show the results of both Triggers firing.

Notifications on Folders

Rather than setting up notifications on every entry/subfolder, a user can create Notifications on the whole folder.

Note: Notifications setup on folders will be inherited by all its entries and subfolders.

The Notification rules will be applied to all the entries within the Folder, all Sub-Folders, and all Entries within the Sub-Folders). Because of this you could get more Notifications than intended.

One should be careful placing Notifications on the “Root” directory.

Note: The Block Inheritance feature will also block inheritance of Notification rules.
This prevents admin from receiving notifications from credentials that they would not know exist.
