I have a requirement for a project that I can't quite seem to get the answer to, and thought that here is the best place.
I have a .NET application which is using the AF SDK to talk to our PI System. This application needs to be able to programatically configure the SMTP settings for Notifications. I did find the DeliveryChannel element within the Configuration database with most of the settings, but there are two things I am not able to figure out.
1. If I set "Basic" authentication instead of "Windows" I will need to set the username and password for the SMTP server. Where would I do this?
2. The user of the app should be able to test the configuration to ensure it is working, I would prefer to do this through the Notification engine so it is a complete test. How would one trigger a test email from the Notification engine?
See this thread for an example of the DeliveryChannel element and Auth configuration: PI Notifications SMTPServerAuthMethod
