Configuration Service

The configuration of the Notifications Service consists of multiple sections and is configured in a config.xml file. The file is located in the installation folder of the service. See below for an example.

  • Notifications

  • Platform

  • Mail



In the notifications section you can configure multiple entries to support notifications, using groups. These entries represent a single Notification entity in the Notification Service. Each entity needs to be specified with the following properties:

The Mail section is where you configure the mail support function of the service. The Mail section consist of the following properties:

  • UserName – Username which will be used for authentication

  • Password – Password encrypted via the password tool

  • Domain – Domain name (If Office365 is used, there is no need to configure the domain name)
