  1. Hi Arihant,

    Thanks for the great article.
    i have few queries in the article:

    Why do we need to remove the DemoTrust.jks component from the file.
    What is the incomingserver hostname ? You mentioned as OS hostname ... why ?


  2. Hi Suren,

    In our configuration we are using mail server security as SSL that why we need to remove DemoTrust.jks. Demotrust works with the non ssl.

    Regarding hostname, The hostname of the incoming mail server. Required only if receiving emails is supported on the driver instance. In our configuration we don't need incoming mail server. If you want to have incoming mail server you can map that mail server.

    Blog updated.

    Thanks for the correction.

  3. Ok. Thanks for the quick reply Arihant.

    At my work place, i have an issue regarding the email notifications. Even after turning off the recon notifications system property, users are receiving the emails.

    System Property : Recon.Send_Notifications= False
    ( users receives emails for user creation)

    Are there any other setttings i need to enable/disable for the user's not to receive email notifications.

    I verified by checking the UMS --> message status page on the enterprise manager.

    Which tables store this UMS notifications ?

    We don't want turn off all notifications.

    Q 2) One more thing is we don't email server IT resource setup. Do we have to setup email server IT resource and email definition, even if we have UMS setup ?


  4. Hi Arihant,

    Could you please help me out on the above queries ?

  5. Hi Suren,

    In OIM two ways we can setup the email notifications.

    1) Email Server (IT resource)
    2) UMS (Email Driver Properties)

    Can you verify both the properties, It looks like of them is configured.

    If it's configured, you can delete the parameters from IT resource or email driver in case if you want to disable all the notifications.
