Deployment Manager provides the Pega-Pipeline-CD email account and the DMEmailListener email listener.
If you are configuring email accounts for the first time, specify your details for this account in Pega Platform. For more information, see Configuring email accounts for new Deployment Manager installations.
Otherwise, if you are upgrading, do the appropriate steps for the email account that you are using. See one of the following topics for more information:
- Configuring email accounts for new Deployment Manager installations
For new Deployment Manager installations, on the orchestration server, configure the Pega-Pipeline-CD email account so users can receive email notifications for events such as task completion or failure.
- Configuring an email account when upgrading and using the Pega-Pipeline-CD email account
If you are upgrading to Deployment Manager 4.8.x and using the Pega-Pipeline-CD email account for sending emails, the DMEmailListener email listener always listens to the Pega-Pipeline-CD account. If you are using a different listener, you must delete it.
- Configuring email accounts when upgrading and using the Default email account
If you are upgrading to Deployment Manager and using the Default email account, after you upgrade to Deployment Manager 4.7.x, you must do certain steps so that you can send email notifications.
- Understanding email notifications
Emails are preconfigured with information about each notification type. For example, when a deployment failure occurs, the email that is sent provides information, such as the pipeline name and URL of the system on which the deployment failure occurred.
