I've created a custom task mail process similar to the one in the JsfWorkflowUi. http://developer.axonivy.com/doc/latest/EngineGuideHtml/administration.html#administration-emailnotification-design

Unfortunately I'm not able to receive any task mail if I simulate a process that create a new task. But it works on a real engine...

Today with Axon.ivy 6.1 and older it's not possible to send task mails from the designer. The main blockers are:

  • the mail servlet (ch.ivyteam.ivy.webserver.internal.IvyMailServlet) which generates the content of the task mail is not bound at designer time.
  • tasks mails require the system application 'System' and its process model 'IvyCommons'. But at design time only one application 'Designer' is available

Other difficulties which can be fixed/configured:

  • the task mail sender job does not respect the designer mail preferences. therefore the system wide mail properties of the engine have to be modified e.g. in a utitlity process
  • the project that provides the task notification mail content process must be registered with an utitily process api call
  • the designer app does not send any task mails by default. however with a JsfWorkflowUi or similar a test user can override his mail settings and enable task mails for any new task.
  • the designer test user must have a mail address configured

sample utility code to enable mail sending in the designer:

package mailGenerator;

import ch.ivyteam.di.restricted.DiCore;
import ch.ivyteam.ivy.application.IApplication;
import ch.ivyteam.ivy.application.IApplicationConfigurationManager;
import ch.ivyteam.ivy.environment.Ivy;
import ch.ivyteam.ivy.security.IEMailNotificationSettings;
import ch.ivyteam.ivy.system.IProperty;
import ch.ivyteam.ivy.workflow.StandardProcessType;

 * Enable task mails in the designer to be generated with the JsfWorkflowUi
public class DesignerMailUtitily {

    public static void configure()

    private static void useMailProcessFromJsfWorkflowUi() {
                StandardProcessType.MailNotificationNewTask, "JsfWorkflowUi");

    private static void enableDesignerApplicationMails() {
        IApplication designerApp = Ivy.wf().getApplication();
        IEMailNotificationSettings mailSettings = designerApp.getDefaultEMailNotifcationSettings();

     * configure the minimal engine properties so that i can work with 'smtp4dev' or similar
    private static void configureEngineMailProperties() {
        IApplicationConfigurationManager appManager = DiCore.getGlobalInjector()
        IProperty host = appManager.getSystemProperty("EMail.Server.Host");

Hi Reguel, Thanks for your solution. I tried to configure it in my local but seems I still miss something to make it run. This is what I did: 1. Create a class and copy above code 2. Import JsfWorkflowUi 3. Create a user with email and run the process has a script call to configure of this class.

But I always get exception at this step : IProperty host = appManager.getSystemProperty("EMail.Server.Host"); Can you give me a hint?
