Oracle ICS provides us an important activity that allows us to Trigger an Email- notification from ICS integration. This is called Notification Activity. This is very simple and straight forward to use.

For all available activities in ICS, please have a look at this blog.

Let’s try to enable notification in already existing Scheduled Integration:

1) Open Action tab from right panel and Drag & Drop Notification activity on integration canvas:

4) Enter edit icon in front of From option. This allows from address to enter.

5) Enter From address in the expression input box. Or we can also drag and drop a variable from the left panel if any variable contains From address. Click Close button from the right upper corner.

As shown in the above image, we have configured ics.notifier@Oracle.com as a from address. ICS gives this from the address that can be used to send notifications.

6) Same ways we can configure To address. Enter comma separated addresses in the case to send the notification to multiple recipients.
