Customized Subscription Massage

Hello Kolegues,

i write a Workflow programm in java that uses the SAP Portal KM an with Java iViews as User-Frontend. It works fine and do what it should do. Every Workflowstep has its own Folder (sometimes with subfolders when many people responsible for this workflowstep and my programm must search for the right person) in the KM and the programm moves the data to the needed workflowstep. I use the SAP Portal User Management API for authorization and the subscription service for notification.

Now i want to add this feature:

The employe must get a customized Subscription Massage. I need for evry folder in the SAP Portal KM an Other subscription massage.

Is there a easy way to do this? In the moment i think i must write a new service an use Java-Mail. Is there a better way to do this?

Best regards,

Patrick Höfer

      Bundled Subscriptions

      Hi Theo,

      In an upcoming release, there is a feature we call "Bundled Subscriptions"

      which provides information on more than one resource at a time. The rendering

      pipeline is somewhat different than for a single resource in that an XML data

      block containing the resource-specific info for all resources is generated, merged

      with the static XML text file, and then transformed with the XSL. The rendering

      library of templates is essentially the same as for single resources. The default

      text for a changed resource will be something like:

      The resource <resourcelink/> <detailslink>Details</detailslink> in the folder

      <parentlink/> was changed by <lastmodifieduser/> on <lastmodified/>.

      As in the case of single resource notifications, we kept the default formatting

      simple so that it is more easily understood, is browser neutral, and does not

      require a connection to the portal to read (e.g., no linked CSS).

      I think this new feature ought to address the requirements you described.

      The subscriptions should support daily, weekly, or monthly summaries.

      As always, if you can better describe exactly what you want to do, it makes

      it easier for us to provide appropriate facilities for achieving your objectives

      and goals. This is your best chance to avoid having to deal with "gaps" later

      that cause hassles for all of us.

    Hi all,

    I'm trying to customize the subscription service in order to use the standar "Recent Notifications" Iview in EP 6.0 SP2.

    I'm not sure if the XML "SUBSCRIPTION_xx.xml" in /etc/notifications applies to this scenario or if it's only for EMAIL texts.

    Is there other way to customize it?

    I have found that JAVA class com.sapportals.wcm.control.subscription.NotificationRenderer is used to render the Iview. Is it necessary to modify this class? I want to delete some columns of the iview (created By and details link)

    Thank you
