Do I need QV Publisher to get email alerts to work?
I have an alert that works fine in the development environment, but when I post it on the server it doesn't work.
If by alert you mean an actual conditional alert in QV, then I'm assuming your alert fires OnPostReload? If so, OnPostReload events are disabled (intentionally) on Server and Publisher reloads so there's no way to get that to work automatically.
If by "alert" you mean just notify users that a reload is finished, then that will work but yes, you need Publisher for that.
I have both interactive and batch checked. The alert will work if I run it using a batch file. The alert will not work if I run the task inside of my management control panel.
Am I missing a simple setting somewhere?
I know that OnPostReload works, I just thought that it didn't work when QDS initiates the reload. I've had QT people confirm this on multiple occasions as a WAD. But you say it's working for you?
Its working now. Not sure what I did different.
I was having trouble with spam setting this morning. We just got those settings configured correctly so I am guessing that was the problem.
Thanks everyone for the great responses.
