Creating notification events and templates

By default, BMC Helix Business Workflows provides notifications for common events that occur during likely use in a line of business. For more information about the default notifications in a line of business, see Notification events and templates.

However, as a case business analyst, you can create custom notifications related to cases, tasks, knowledge articles, milestones, and case approvals for your company. To create a custom notification, you must first create a notification event to define the event name in the product and a template to define the content and structure of the notification. You perform both tasks when creating custom notifications for any module. The tasks you perform next depends on the module for which you are creating a notification. For more information about the process of creating notifications, see Creating custom notifications.

Before you begin

If you are creating a custom notification for a change in an association field value, you must first create a field association mapping for the association field. For more information about field associations and their mappings, see Using association fields in record associations.

  2. Click My Application Settings .
  3. Select Notification Configuration Manage Templates.

  4. On the Manage Templates page, from the Line of Business list, select the line of business to copy or modify a notification template.
    If you have access to a single line of business, the line of business is selected by default.

  5. Select the template that you want to copy, and click Copy Template.

    Important

    • You cannot copy a notification template that is created for the Social module.
    • You cannot copy a notification template from one line of business to another line of business.

    The template copy consists of the template details, recipients, and localized template messages copied from the original template. The template copy has an event specific to a company.

    Important

    If you are creating a copy of the Case Reopened or Task Status Change template, do not change the template name.

    If you change the template name, notification action does not work correctly. Notifications are sent by using the default templates and not by using the copied template.

    You can modify the template description, default notification method, labels, status, recipients, and the notification message.

Hannah is a case business analyst in Calbro Services. She wants to use an out-of-the-box notification template Case Status Change and wants to use a custom message for the notifications for her company. She creates a copy of the Case Status Change template. While creating a copy, Hannah selects the company as Calbro Services and specifies the template name as Case Status Change-Calbro Services. She then modifies the notification message to the following message and saves the template copy:

The status of the case <Case ID> is changed.

To navigate to the case, click the Case ID.

To insert fields and add links in a notification message

While creating notification templates, in a notification message, you can insert fields as placeholders for current values of variables. For example, you are creating the Case Priority Change template, and, in the email content, you want to display the time when the case priority is changed.

 In a notification message, you can add a link to the source of the notification. You can add a link that points to a case, knowledge article, task, and so on, based on the module for which you are creating notifications. For example, you create a notification template for case status change. When the status of a case is changed, a notification is sent to a user. The notification message contains a case ID with a link to the case. The user clicks the case ID and opens the case. This helps the user to quickly navigate to the source of the notification.

The following table describes how to insert a field and add a link in a notification message:

ActionDescription
Insert placeholders for current values of variables

Click Insert Fieldsand perform any of the following actions based on the Module Name that you select while creating a notification template:

  • For case modules, expand the General menu or Case menu, and add a field. The Case menu consists of the case association fields and dynamic fields along with the case fields.
    For example, to display the time when the case priority is changed, in Insert Fields, from General menu, add Current Time and give the expression—Case priority was changed at .
  • For task modules, expand the General menu or Task menu, and add a field. The Task menu consists of the case association fields and dynamic fields along with the task  fields.
  • For knowledge modules, expand the General menu or Knowledge menu, and add a field. The Knowledge menu consists of the knowledge association fields and the knowledge fields.

Important: Do not add confidential fields in a notification message. If you add a confidential field in a notification message, the field value is displayed in the message.

Add a link to the source of the notification
Insert a field and click Generate clickable link . For example, to add a link to a case, click Insert Fields, expand the Case Fields menu, add Display ID, and click Generate clickable link . When a notification is sent, the Display ID field displays the case ID with a link to the case.

Based on the Module Name that you select while creating a notification template, you can add links to the following fields:

    • CasesDisplay ID
    • Service Level Management - CaseDisplay ID
    • KnowledgeContent ID
    • SocialParent_DisplayID
    • TasksDisplay ID
    • Service Level Management - TaskDisplay ID
    • Case - ApprovalRequest Secondary
    • Case - WatchlistDisplay ID
    • Service Request—Display ID
      Note: For the Display ID to be a clickable link for the service request, ensure that the domain for BMC Helix Digital Workplace Advanced is whitelisted. Learn more about whitelisting in Adding HTML tags and domains to the allowlist.

Localized notifications

Notifications are sent in a locale other than English if the recipient has defined the notification locale in the Person profile in BMC Helix ITSM. The notification locale defined for all To, Cc, and Bcc recipients is checked. If all recipients have the same locale, the notification is sent in that locale. If a different locale is defined for any recipient, the notification is sent in English. The following image shows where to define the localized message and locale, and also lists examples to understand how localized notifications work:

The following locales are supported in notification templates:

  • English (United States): en_US
  • German (Germnay): de_DE
  • Spanish (International Sort): es_ES
  • French (France): fr_FR
  • Italian (Italy): it_IT
  • Portuguese (Brazil): pt_BR
  • Swedish (Sweden): sv_SE
  • Dutch (Netherlands): nl_NL
  • Danish (Denmark): da_DK

To configure notifications for support group

The support group notifications are defined in Mid Tier.

  1. In Mid Tier, select Applications > Administrator Console > Application Administrator Console.
  2. On the Standard Configuration tab, click View next to Support Group.
