Enable email event notifications

This page describes StackState version 4.3.

The StackState 4.3 version range is End of Life (EOL) and no longer supported. We encourage customers still running the 4.3 version range to upgrade to a more recent release.

Go to the documentation for the latest StackState release.


StackState can send an event notification by email whenever the health state of an entity or view changes. To enable email event notifications, the StackState configuration must include details of the SMTP server to use.

Configure an SMTP server to use for email event notifications

  1. Update the StackState configuration in values.yaml to include SMTP server details:

           config: |
               email {
                 properties {
                   "mail.smtp.auth" = "true"   # "true" when user/pass provided   
                   "mail.smtp.starttls.enable" = "false"   # use "true" for TLS
                 sender = "<EMAIL_SENDER_ADDRESS>"
                 server {
                   protocol = "smtp"
                   host =  "<SMTP_SERVER_HOST>"
                   port = 25
                   username = "XXX"      # optional
                   password = "XXX"      # optional
  2. Restart StackState to apply the configuration changes.

  3. Add an email event handler to a view from the StackState UI.
