Configure email notifications in Flowable


Hi shweta,

I am sorry I can’t help you. I just configured Flowable but not tested email notification in it yet.



Could point me in a more definite direction on how to implement this class?



You can find more info on how task listeners work in the docs;

And see some task listener implementation examples in GitHub;




Is there an option of keeping the password for SMTP server in encoded form in the config file or is there any other way to achieve this? Keeping a password in text form is something not too appreciated in a file as a security concern

You cannot set SMTP credentials in UI application. You need to set some properties while launching the server. These properties will help to find SMTP credentials.

You can refer to the same in documentation here:
