Email Subject in Subscription Notification - customize wording?

Hi all,

we use EP6 NW04SPS11.

Our users have discussions in Collaboration Rooms to which they can subscribe. Then they get an Email containing a link to the discussion.

The Problem: in the email the word "subscription" is not really optimal, so we took the SUBSCRIPTIONADMIN_de.xml from etc/notifications to change the text in the mail body.

But i can't find the place where the subject of the email is generated, there we always have the text "Subskription "<DiscussionTitle>". There had been an great discussion thread with doku about this but the Email Subject is still an open issue

Customized Subscription Massage

Any ideas out there ?

regard, yann

    Hi Yann,

    this is a little bit tricky, though.

    The subject is taken from a property file inside this JAR:


    When you open this JAR you'll find several translated property files. (Res_??.properties)

    Inside these files you'll find the mailing subjects.

    I'm not sure if this trick works...: Unzip the JAR, edit the file, zip the JAR. Test if this works...

    Maybe you'll have to redeploy the PAR (that contains the JAR). The PAR could be found here:


    Simply rename the par from <i>.par.bak</i> to <i>.par</i> (after changing the JARs content) then restart the portal. This will redeploy the PAR, with its content. This should do it, if the first one doesn't...

    Puh...I guess this should do it.

    Hope this works!
