Configure Business Rules to Send Notifications

Configure Business Rules to Send Notifications (Master Data Services)


Applies To: SQL Server 2016 Preview

In Master Data Services, configure business rules to send notifications when you want to notify users about attribute value changes.


To perform this procedure:

  • You must have permission to access the System Administration and User and Group Permissions functional areas. If you do not have permission to the User and Group Permissions functional area, you cannot view the list of users and groups to send notifications to.

  • You must be a model administrator. For more information, see Administrators (Master Data Services).

  • A business rule that uses a validation action must already exist. For more information, see Create and Publish a Business Rule (Master Data Services).

  • The user or group that receives the notification must have at least Read-only permission to the attribute that fails validation. Users or groups that are explicitly or implicitly denied permission to the attribute will receive the email but will not be able to access the attribute in Master Data Services.

  • If mail is sent to a group, only members of the group that have accessed Master Data Services will get the email.
