You can extend Deployment Manager notification capabilities by creating custom notification channels. For example, you can send text messages to mobile devices when tasks start, stop, and are unsuccessful.

To create a custom notification channel, complete the following steps:

  1. On the orchestration server, in Pega Platform, create a custom notification channel.

    For more information, see Adding a custom notification channel.
  2. Add the application ruleset, which contains the channel that you created, to the Deployment Manager application.

    2. On the Edit Application rule form, in the Application rulesets section, click Add ruleset.

    4. Save the rule form.

  3. Enable the channel that you created on the appropriate notifications by saving the notification in the application ruleset that contains the channel.

    1. Open the notification by clicking Records Notifications .

    2. Click the Channels tab.

    3. On the Channel configurations page, select the channel that you want to use.

  • Understanding custom Deployment Manager notification channels

    When notifications are enabled, you can receive notifications about the events that occur in your pipeline, such as when tasks start or stop. You can receive notifications through email, the Deployment Manager notifications gadget, or both. You can also create custom notification channels to meet application requirements such as sending notifications as phone text messages or as push notifications on mobile devices.
