Notification profiles allow HL7Connect to generate messages in the Windows Event log or to send e-mail or sms messages to nominated accounts.

They can be used to inform administrators when one or more of the following events occur:

Creating a Notification profile

  1. Click on Administration in the HL7Connect navigation bar
  2. Choose the Notifications tab
  3. Click on the New Notification Profile button
  4. Name: Choose the name of the user or machine the message will be sent to, and, perhaps the name of the interface.
  5. Settings: Pick the appropciate delivery message
  6. Settings for SMTP Email
  7. Settings for SMS
  8. If you do not wish any message content to be included when sending to this notification profile, enable the "Privacy Please" checkbox.
  9. Click on the Add Notification button

Note: You must configure the SMTP Server before you can use Email notifications.

 

Edit a Notification profile

  1. Click on Administration in the HL7Connect navigation bar
  2. Choose the Notifications tab
  3. Select the Notification profile that you would like to edit
  4. Click on the Edit button
  5. Modify the notification profile as required

Delete Notification Profile

  1. Click on Administration in the HL7Connect navigation bar
  2. Choose the Notifications tab
  3. Select the notification profile that you would like to delete
  4. Click the Delete button
  5. You will be asked if you are sure you want to delete the notification profile
  6. Click Yes

Note: You cannot delete a notification profile while it is in use. If you attempt to delete a notification profile while the notification profile is in use, you will receive an error message showing the list of interfaces that are using the profile.

Testing Notifications

You can test a notification manually. Note that particularly email notifications can be quite unreliable due to the operation of the myriad of spam detectors and other systems. For instance, many email servers kill any mail with the letter sequence ".vbs" in it. So the test functionality allows you to test a notification with any particular content.
