Deployment Template: E-Mail Tab

Note: This tab applies only to agentless deployments initiated from the console; it does not apply to agents that may also be using this template.

This tab enables you to specify which reports should be automatically sent and to whom the reports should get sent. The specified reports will be sent for each deployment that uses this template.

 

 

Available Reports

There are three different deployment reports that can get sent:

  • Deployment Notification: This report is sent after the deployment is successfully scheduled. It identifies the patches that will be deployed and the date and time of the pending installation.

  • Deployment Status by Deployment:  This report is sent after the deployment is complete and verified or after the maximum time specified on the General tab. The report provides general status information about the deployment.

  • Deployment Status by Machine:  This report is sent after the deployment is complete and verified or after the maximum time specified on the General tab.  The report identifies each machine included in the deployment and indicates if the patch deployment on each machine was successful or unsuccessful.
