Enable email notifications in Planning Analytics Workspace Local

Planning Analytics Workspace Local now supports both SMTP and SendGrid email services.

To enable the email service, specify the following parameters in Planning Analytics Workspace Local configuration.

ENABLE_EMAIL
Set this property to true to enable the email service in Planning Analytics Workspace Local. Either EMAIL_SMTP_URL or SENDGRID_API_KEY parameter must also be specified. If both parameters are specified, EMAIL_SMTP_URL is used.
Default: false
EMAIL_SMTP_URL
Use this parameter to enable the SMTP email service. The parameter specifies the SMTP server URL. The following are examples of such URLs:
smtps://username:password@smtp.example.com:587?ignoreTLS=true
smtps://username:password@smtp.example.com:465?secure=true&tls.rejectUnauthorized=false
If you specify this parameter, the SENDGRID_API_KEY is not used, even if it's specified.
Default: empty (no URL is specified)
SENDGRID_API_KEY
Use this parameter to enable the SendGrid email service. The parameter specifies the API key for the SendGrid email account.
Note: You might need to contact the email administrator for your organization to obtain the API key that is specific to your email service.
If you specify this parameter, specify also EMAIL_FROM, but don't specify EMAIL_SMTP_URL.
Default: empty (no API key is specified)
EMAIL_FROM
Specifies the sender address if it is required by the email server. This parameter is mandatory when SENDGRID_API_KEY is specified.

After you specify these parameters in the configuration file and run the paw.sh or paw.ps1 script, the Email tab becomes available in the user interface when you share a book or view.
