Configure the SMTP Server

On This Page

Overview

The platform sends email messages for different purposes, such as password generation and call home functionality. To support this, the platform clusters needs to be configured to work with a Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) server that will be used for sending the email messages.

Prerequisites

The following prerequisites must be filled to successfully configure an SMTP server for your cluster:

  • There must be an SMTP server with connectivity to the cluster. When the cluster is connected to the internet, you can use a public server. Otherwise, use a local SMTP server.
  • The call home functionality requires that the SMTP server be able to send emails to the Iguazio domain.
  • The user who configures the SMTP server must have the IT Admin management policy.

Configuring an SMTP Server from the Dashboard

Follow these steps to configure an SMTP server for your cluster:

  1. Open the platform dashboard and select the settings gear-wheel icon () from the top-right toolbar of any page to open the Settings window.

  2. In the SMTP section, ensure that the Enabled option is turned on and fill in the configuration parameters — a valid SMTP email address; the username and password of an SMTP user to be used for sending the email messages; the host IP address and port of the SMTP server; and optionally a list of users with the IT Admin management policy for receiving cluster-alert email notifications — as demonstrated in the following image:

    Note
    In the current release, only users who have both the IT Admin and Tenant Admin management policies, such as the predefined tenancy_admin user, can use the Users to notify parameter to configure IT Admin users who’ll receive cluster-alert email notifications.
    Note that if you don’t have the Tenant Admin policy, an error message is displayed upon entering the SMTP settings page — “Error: Failed to fetch user list (you can still update the rest)”. However, as indicated in the message, this doesn’t prevent you from configuring SMTP without email notifications.
  3. Select Apply to apply your changes.
