Outbound Queues

Configure outbound queues for job file processing.

One of the primary features of ERIS is the support of file system folders, also known as queues. File system folders/queues are continuously monitored for activity and processed in the order they are written to disk chronologically.

The following screen shows the default outbound queue configuration.

Outbound Queue Settings

SettingDescription
Outbound Queue PathSpecifies the path/folder of the outbound queue.
Dial AttemptsSpecifies the number of re-dial attempts for jobs processed by this queue. Set to 0 if no redial attempts should be used.
Redial DelaySpecifies the redial delay for the next redial attempt. The default is 2 minutes.
Call ConcurrenceControls whether multiple jobs are allowed to dial the same number simultaneously. This is used to prevent multiple jobs dialing the same number simultaneously to help prevent line busy signals.

Outbound Notifications

TypeDescription
FileWrites a status file to Notification Path using the specified Pattern (see below).
EmailSends an email notification to the mailbox specified in Notification Path.
PrintThe print feature is not available for outbound notifications.
ExecExecutes the script (executable, PowerShell script, etc.) specified in the Notification Path

When using Exec, the full path and file name of the status file is passed as an argument to the executable or shell script.

Notification File Patterns

When notification files are created, placeholders in the pattern will be translated as follows:

PlaceholderDescription
