Standalone Sentry Email+ Notification Service for Core

You can set up Standalone Sentry as an Email+ Notification Service. This feature is available only when it is used with Email+ 3.13.0. This capability allows you to configure multiple Exchange servers to provide notifications for VIP accounts in Email+. This feature requires Core, cloud notification service (CNS), Standalone Sentry, and Email+.

To enable Email+ notifications, you must configure Standalone Sentry configuration on Core. You must also configure the key-value pairs in the AppConnect App configuration.

Before you begin 

  • Ensure that you have Core 10.5.0.2 or later and Sentry 9.8.5 or later.
  • Ensure that you have the JWT token of CNS production server.
    A token is a randomly generated string from Ivanti, representing an authorization token for the cloud server.
    The term JWT token is also referred as Authorization Token, Token, and notification_server_authorization across Ivanti products.
  • Standalone Sentry must be configured with a publicly trusted certificate.
  • Ensure that the Exchange servers are configured with the service account. The servers must have identity certificate to authenticate the service account.
    For more information on configuring service account on Microsoft Exchange server, see Configuring a service account.
    Also, see Microsoft documentation.
  • If Exchange server version support is earlier than TLS v1.2, then the supported protocols should be configured in Incoming protocols on MICS.

Supported protocols are configured under Incoming SSL configuration under custom configuration on Sentry MICS UI.

  • Ensure that the Standalone Sentry port is configured at 9090 as default.
