Notifications (Master Data Services)

Master Data Services can be configured to send e-mail notifications automatically.

You configure notifications in Master Data Services Configuration Manager. Notifications send mail by using Database Mail on the instance of SQL Server Database Engine that hosts the Master Data Services database. For more information about Database Mail, see Database Mail Configuration Objects in SQL Server Books Online.

After notifications are configured, automated e-mail notifications can be sent in the following two instances.



Data fails business rule validation

Individual business rules must be configured to send e-mail when an attribute value fails business rule validation. For more information, see How to: Configure Business Rules to Send Notifications (Master Data Services).

Model version status changes

Each time a model version's status changes, users that are model administrators receive notifications automatically. For more information, see Administrators (Master Data Services).

Notification System Settings

There are settings in Master Data Services Configuration Manager that affect notifications. You can adjust these settings in Master Data Services Configuration Manager or directly in the System Settings table in the Master Data Services database. For more information, see System Settings (Master Data Services).
