    Hi,

    First create a user with email address in the Console and then add your "Mail Server=<smtpservername> in mds.ini file (prog. files >SAP MDM > Server).

    For MDM WF you need Microsft Visio.

    Good luck,

    NL

    Hi,

    MDM workflow can send email notifications when a step has exceeded its allotted time or number of iterations. The notification from the owner of the workflow is sent to all assignees who have received but not yet completed the step, along with a “cc” to the specified users.

    For this You must add a Mail Server entry in the mds.ini for every repository that uses workflow (for example, Mail Server=mail.domain.com).

    Regards

    Hi Vinay,

    To make workflow automatic.

    1) Go to Data manager.

    2) Select Workflow table.

    3)In the properties of workflow specify Triger action as Record Import,Recort update and Record Add .

    Email notification is already answered.
