Configure Mail server configuration for Email task programatically


I am new to flowable and I want to configure the SMTP server to the flowable engine so that I can send emails using “Mail task” in a flowable process. I want to load the mail properties programmatically from the database instead of passing them through the project’s application properties. How can I achieve this?.

Thank you in advance!

Hey @flowableUser42,

Currently the Flowable Mail task does not support programatic configuration of the properties that are currently configurable in the application properties.

If you are interested in such a functionality we are open to receiving and reviewing a PR for it.

Hi User42,
As Filip says, this isn’t currently supported.
One option you have is to create your own email delegate service task which retrieves the mail server properties from a database.
You could even use the default MailActivityBehavior class as a model:
