NAME

script-email - Amanda script to send email notifications

CONTENTS

DESCRIPTION

script-email is an Amanda script implementing the Script API. It should not be run by users directly. It sends a notification email to the addresses specified in the MAILTO property.

PROPERTIES

This section lists the properties that control script-emails functionality. See amanda-scripts(7) for information on the Script API, script configuration.

MAILTO

List of email addresses that will receive an email on command execution. It is a multi-valued property:

  property "MAILTO" "amanda@domain.com" "sysadmin@domain.com" "amandauser@domain.com"

EXAMPLE

In this example, script-email is scheduled to be run before the DLE, on the server. The unqualified email address amanda will be passed to the email system unchanged. The script is then attached to a dumptype, which can then be specified for any DLEs which require notification.

 define script-tool pre-email {
   comment "email me before this DLE is backed up"
   plugin  "script-email"
   execute-on pre-dle-backup
   execute-where server
   property "mailto" "amanda"
 }

define dumptype user-tar-email { user-tar script "pre-email" }
