How to Configure E-Mail Notification

When an Editor or a Reviewer attempts to create, deploy, or delete a Group Policy object (GPO), a request for this action is sent to a designated e-mail address or addresses so that an Approver can evaluate the request and implement or deny it. You determine the e-mail address or addresses to which notifications are sent, as well as the alias from which notifications are sent.

A user account with the AGPM Administrator (Full Control) role or necessary permissions in Advanced Group Policy Management is required to complete this procedure. Review the details in "Additional considerations" in this topic.

To configure e-mail notification for AGPM

  1. In the Group Policy Management Console tree, click Change Control in the forest and domain in which you want to manage GPOs.

  2. In the details pane, click the Domain Delegation tab.

  3. In the From field, type the e-mail alias for AGPM from which notifications should be sent.

  4. In the To field, type a comma-delimited list of e-mail addresses of Approvers who should receive requests for approval.

  5. In the SMTP server field, type a valid SMTP mail server.

  6. In the User name and Password fields, type the credentials of a user with access to the SMTP service.

  7. Click Apply.

Additional considerations

  • By default, you must be an AGPM Administrator (Full Control) to perform this procedure. Specifically, you must have List Contents and Modify Options permissions for the domain.

  • E-mail notification for AGPM is a domain-level setting. You can provide different Approver e-mail addresses or AGPM e-mail aliases on each domain's Domain Delegation tab, or use the same e-mail addresses throughout your environment.
