Requesting the experts to please update on this thread.
Not quite sure I follow but let me try to answer the best I can. In 11g, the Preferences -> email is the email address for each user (set per user). You then have the notification schedule, this is your users schedule of when notifications should be received or not. If you don't want to get emails between 10pm and 4am, you can make that change here. A Super User or SYSMAN acct also needs to set the SMTP info under Setup -> Notification Methods for email to work.
Then you get to the Notification Rules (Preferences -> Rules). You can either Create/Edit (if you have permissions) or Subscribe to an existing. If an administrator sets up a notification rule, a normal user can go in and subscribe to that rule to receive the email notifications (based on their email config and schedule above). Or if you're the owner of a notification rule, you can click the Email Me in the Actions tab of the rule, or assign another notification method (script, pl/sql, etc)... Notifications will only be sent to those users who's email is correct and schedule is enabled for that time.
Does this clarify?
Thanks for your reply but the major concern is that would the emails go to the emails specified in Preferences->General or Preferences->Notification Schedule as emails are mapped in notification schedule also?
I hope my query is clear.
The email is set in the preferences -> general for a user. Then displayed in the schedule. Does your show different emails? If you're logged in as sysman, you can view other users schedules, but you can not change the email id here.
They are the same. But, my doubt is that can I include a email id in notification schedule which is not there in Preferences->General, I mean a email id which exists in
Preferences->Notification Schedule but does not exist in Preferences->General?
Request you to please revert.
No. The schedule is for the emails defined in the Preferences->General page. So no, you cannot add an email in the schedule if it is not defined in the Preferences->General page.1 person found this helpful
