Email setup for Appian on Kubernetes

Overview

This page shows how to set up inbound and outbound email in Appian on Kubernetes for self-managed customers.

Email Configuration

Appian does not include an email server for inbound/outbound email, but it can be configured to send and receive email via external email servers by properties set in custom.properties and passwords.properties. Appian on Kubernetes supports specifying these properties in the .spec.customProperties and .spec.webapp.passwordsPropertiesSecretName fields, respectively, on Appian custom resources. The latter field represents the name of a Kubernetes Secret.

To configure Appian to send and receive email, do the following.

  1. Create a file on your machine named passwords.properties with the appropriate content as instructed by the product documentation.

  2. Create a Secret containing passwords.properties using the following command.

    1
    
    kubectl -n <NAMESPACE> create secret generic passwords-properties --from-file=passwords.properties
    
  3. Set the .spec.customProperties and .spec.webapp.passwordsPropertiesSecretName fields on your site’s Appian custom resource:
