class EnsLib.EMail.AlertOperation extends Ens.Alerting.NotificationOperation

This is a simple EMail Alert Operation.

InterSystems IRIS automatically sends all Ens.AlertRequest messages to the production item named Ens.Alert, if it exists. This production item may be a business operation, like this one, or it may be a routing process that provides logic to direct alerts to various business operations.

InterSystems IRIS sends all Ens.AlertRequest messages to the Event Log, regardless of whether or not Ens.Alert exists. If there is no production item named Ens.Alert, the place to find alert messages is in the Event Log.

This class can also send email message for Managed Alerts created by InterSystems IRIS.

Property methods: AdapterGet(), AdapterGetSwizzled(), AdapterIsValid(), AdapterNewObject(), AdapterSet()
property IncludeDetails as %Boolean [ InitialExpression = 0 ];
Control whether detailed information is added to emails sent for standard Ens.AlertRequest messages. The default is 0 (or False) for backward compatibility reasons.
Property methods: IncludeDetailsDisplayToLogical(), IncludeDetailsGet(), IncludeDetailsIsValid(), IncludeDetailsLogicalToDisplay(), IncludeDetailsNormalize(), IncludeDetailsSet()
property IncludeManagedAlertHistory as %Integer (DISPLAYLIST = ",False,Oldest First,Newest First", VALUELIST = ",0,1,2") [ InitialExpression = 0 ];
Control whether all Managed Alert actions will be included in the email, and the order in which the actions are included.
Property methods: IncludeManagedAlertHistoryDisplayToLogical(), IncludeManagedAlertHistoryGet(), IncludeManagedAlertHistoryIsValid(), IncludeManagedAlertHistoryLogicalToDisplay(), IncludeManagedAlertHistoryNormalize(), IncludeManagedAlertHistorySet()
property IncludeNodeinSubject as %Boolean [ InitialExpression = 0 ];

property SepLine as %String [ InitialExpression = "===============================================================" ];
