Using notification profiles with default jobs

When someone submits a print job, InfoPrint Manager sends messages about that job based on a default notification profile. As a result, the delivery method is message, the delivery address is "the user ID of the person who submitted the job @ the address of the system the job was submitted from," and the event identifiers are those listed in Default notification profile settings. (If you submit jobs using InfoPrint Select, the default notification profile is different. See Working with Select notifications for additional information.)

To change the settings in the default notification profile, you can create a notification profile on a default job. There are several things to keep in mind when you set up a notification profile on a default job:

  • You can only set one default job on each logical destination. As a result, all of the jobs will use the same notification profile.
  • If you set a delivery address in the notification profile for the default job, all messages will go to that address. However, if you leave the delivery address blank, InfoPrint Manager will fill it in with the address that the job was submitted from (you can't specify this address; it is sent with the job). This option only works with the message and e-mail delivery methods and is the only time that the notification profiles are merged.
  • If you submit a job with an explicit notification profile (for example, by including the notification-profile attribute when you submit a job using pdpr), that profile overrides the one set in the default job.
    Note: If you submit jobs using InfoPrint Select, an explicit notification profile is sent with every job. To use a notification profile on a default job with InfoPrint Select, see Working with Select notifications for information about overriding Select notifications.
