Change in subject of Notification template does not reflect when notification gets triggered

Hi,

We are facing this issue while testing a couple of notifications which use an existing event. The notifications are triggered via a scheduled job.

The notification gets triggered for the very first time as per defined template. However when we modify the subject in the template, either of the below things happen:

1. The notification which gets trigered shows the previous subject line as is.

2. The notification template becomes non existent. There is no error observed, but the email is not received.

We are not sure if this is a bug or default behavior. But we need to have a solution because there are chances the subject lines will be different in production environments.

Any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks.

    Hi srinath,

    I am  using 11.1.2.3.0 OIM Suite version. There is no BP applied on it yet. But I am attaching the opatch details herein , incase you want to have a look.

    The steps that I followed are:

    1. OIM sysadmin console > Notifications > Create > entered Notification Name > Selected an existing event from Available Events > entered

    Observed that everytime i have to modify anything , I have to create a new template , otherwise the change is not seen.

    Might be a caching issue. Did you try Purge Cache utility or server restart?

    Hi Philipp,

    Yes tried both , doesn't work.

    Observed that the issue is not only with subject , but with the body too. changes do not reflect.

    It might be a caching issue. Are there any cache files that can be deleted manually?

    TIA.

    Observed that the issue is not only with subject , but with the body too. changes do not reflect.

    For OOTB scheduled jobs , I think custom templates are not picked up and only the existing ones changes will be picked up . Reason being that the notification task code sets the template to default one.

    From the details that you have provided I assume you are expecting a custom template to be picked up by the one of the ootb scheduled jobs . Is that right ?
