Applies To:

GroupID 8, 9, 10 - Self-Service

Business Requirement:

Set the Self-Service portal in such a way that if an end-user makes changes to the directory using the portal, he or she should get an email notification for the changes made.


This business requirement can be achieved by applying a notification setting in the identity store.

  1. In GroupID Management Console, click the Identity Stores node.
  2. On the Identity Stores tab, double-click the required identity store to open its properties.
  3. Select the Configurations tab and then click Notification in the left pane.
  4. On the Notification page, select the Notify logged-in users about changes being made to objects check box.

  5. Click Apply and then OK.

    With this notification setting selected, email notifications will be sent to the logged-in user for changes they make to directory objects using the portal.

    Note: This setting applies to mail-enabled users only.

Impact on the Self-Service portal:

In the example below, the end-user changes the Description field of a group.

This user will get an email notification for the changes he or she made.
