An SMTP server allows the Edge UI to send emails. For example, the Edge UI can send an email to assist a user in recovering their UI password.
At install time, you can specify the SMTP information. To change the SMTP information, or if
you deferred SMTP configuration at the time of installation, you can use the
apigee-setup utility to modify the SMTP configuration.
You can change any or all of the following information:
- SMTP host, such as smtp.gmail.com
- SMTP port, such as 465 if you are using TLS/SSL
- SMTP username and password
- SMTP "From" email address
To update the SMTP information:
- Edit the configuration file that you used to install Edge, or create a new configuration
file with the following information:
# Must include the sys admin password APIGEE_ADMINPW=sysAdminPW # SMTP settings SKIP_SMTP=n SMTPHOST=smtp.example.com SMTPUSERemail@example.com # 0 for no username SMTPPASSWORD=smtppwd # 0 for no password SMTPSSL=n SMTPPORT=25 SMTPMAILFROM="My Company <firstname.lastname@example.org>"
- Run the
apigee-setuputility on all the Edge UI nodes to update the SMTP settings:
/opt/apigee/apigee-setup/bin/setup.sh -p ui -f configFile
apigee-setuputility restarts the Edge UI.
