In order to take advantage of the alert feature in SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation that is explained in the blog, as a pre-requisite, you should configure a Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) server.

Configuration of Mail Server in Cloud Factory is quite simple and straightforward.

Navigate to the Configuration Tab in Cloud Factory.


Step 1: Enter a Name for your server configuration and a Description (optional).

Step 2: Select a Security Method: TLS (Transport Layer Security) or SSL (Secure Sockets Layer)

Step 3: Fill the Sender Address input field with the mail address that will be used to send the alerts to the recipients.

Step 4: Fill the Host Address input field with the hostname or IP address of the mail server that will be used to send the alerts.

Step 5: Fill the Port input field with the number of the port that will be used for connecting to the SMTP Server.

Note: If you've chosen TLS security method, the recommended value of the port is 587. If you've chosen SSL security method, it's 465.

Step 6: Check the SMTP Authentication checkbox to enable SMTP authentication. Then enter a User and a Password. This step is optional.

In order to test the configuration, click on the Send Test Mail button. A dialog box appears as shown below.
