Enable Email Integration¶
In Scalr you can integrate with a SMTP server to send emails when the following events occur:
- User creation and password resets
- Application provisioning from Service Catalog
- Cost Analytics reports and notifications
- Budget threshold warnings
- Farm Lease expirations
- Non-Standard lease requests/approvals etc
To enable email, add the following settings to your scalr-server.rb:
# Email settings. Unless you set those, Scalr will not deliver email. app[:email_from_address] = 'firstname.lastname@example.org' # Source address for the messages sent by Scalr app[:email_from_name] = 'Scalr Service' # Source name for the messages sent by Scalr app[:email_mailserver] = nil # Set this to 'host:port' of your SMTP server for email to be delivered. If you don't set it, no mail will be sent. Example '127.0.0.1:25' app[:email_configuration] = 'FromLineOverride=YES' # Additional configuration to inject into /opt/scalr-server/etc/ssmtp/ssmtp.conf. FromLineOverride=YES allows for "From" override. #Optional settings below: app[:email_configuration] = 'root=no_r...@scalr.com AuthUser=User AuthPass=Password UseSTARTTLS=YES '
In a multi-node configuration, the scalr-server.rb file should be exactly the same across all Scalr server nodes. Remember to run
scalr-server-ctl reconfigure on all nodes whenever you make an update to the scalr-server.rb configuration file.
