PAM - Email Configuration

  • 1.  PAM - Email Configuration

    Posted 05-16-2018 12:41 PM



    We want to have mail notification functionality from CA PAM. Our PAM servers are added to the mail relay server and port 25 is the default one used by mail server. the port opening is also done in firewall level.


    We added the email server ip and port into PAM configuration. but it asks for an account, without which its not allowing us to save the config.


    Do we need an email server account (user id / password) to send mail notifications from PAM?


    Because, I have worked on few other IDM tools, splunk, where it requires, 1. enable mail relay (add senders IP), 2. open port 25. Thats it.


    Please help what are the details required for mail configuration.


    Note: We configuration mail config in Credential manager --> mail settings-->

    Is this correct place?

    Hi Dk, you must be referring to the email configuration on the credential manager side. You do need to specify a target account, but if you don't need server authentication, you can just pick any existing account, or define a Generic target application for a device and a dummy account with a dummy password. The credentials will not be used.
