Summary:

Latest Actions Included With MassTransit

The latest releases of MassTransit Enterprise, Premier and Standard as well as Professional and Satellite servers feature a number of new actions that can provide additional flexibility to your critical workflows, and also provide new levels of logging and notification to keep you in complete control. Please take a moment to look at these new and exciting actions that are part of your new MassTransit server.

If you are running MassTransit server 7, please refer to the Actions page for detailed information about the latest available MassTransit actions and how to configure them.

Description:

SMS Message Notifications:

MassTransit Servers can now send text messages to your mobile phone using standard SMS delivery. To access this feature, click on the mobile phone icon from the “Actions” tab of the “Setup” menu.

Next, enter the custom text message that you wish to send to the mobile phone of your choice. In the event that your message exceeds the standard 160 characters, select the option to “Generate Multiple SMS Messages If Message Exceeds 160 Characters.” MassTransit will automatically span your text across multiple text messages, until message delivery is complete.

Now, enter the mobile telephone number of the recipient, followed by the recipient’s mobile carrier. Select the “OK” button to save these changes.

Please note that standard text messaging rates may apply to message recipients. Please check with mobile carriers for additional information.

To use this feature you must configure the following settings in the MassTransit.cfg file, and then restart the MassTransit Engine.

%% Default SMTP server and from email address – used for actions
notification_smtp_server_address=smtp.yourcompany.com
notification_smtp_from_address=mtadmin@yourcompany.com

Custom Log Messages:

MassTransit Servers now offer one the flexibility to customize log messages. With this feature, one may have user-configurable text appear within the standard MassTransit log when “Who” and “When” conditions are met. To explore this feature, click on the icon featuring the paper and the pencil.

Next, enter the customized text that you wish to have appear in the MassTransit log within the “Message” field. Then, use the “Entry Type” and “Severity” fields to choose where and when you would like your custom message to appear. Select “OK” to save these changes.

Copy and Move Actions:

MassTransit Servers now offer the ability to copy and move files to a destination of your choice, without the need for a Service. This feature eliminates the necessity of remote servers configuring “Print to” and “Output to” folders to comply with your internal workflow. When this feature is enabled, MassTransit will automatically move or copy files to the specified destination when “Who” and “When” events are configured.

To create this action, select the “When” and “Who” events, and then click on the icon featuring the moving file.

When the “Configure Copy/Move File” window appears, select the destination location of your choice, by clicking the “Choose” button. Next, choose whether you wish to move or copy the file within the “Operation” field.

Note that the “Move” option will send the file to the remote destination of your choice, while removing the original file from the “Received” folder. The “Copy” option will make an exact copy in the remote destination of choice, while keeping the original file in the “Received” folder.

A Note About MassTransit Actions:

All MassTransit actions may be configured through the Remote Administrator interface. To create or configure an action, connect to your MassTransit Server through the Administrator.

Next, click on the “Setup” button and then click on the “Actions” tab to reveal the section to add or configure your new MassTransit actions.
