I want to send message to event handler through notify shape, can I do this using notify shape if not which shape is best suited for this job
If the error occurs before the notify shape OR after the notify shape, then I believe It will not send any alerts. So, While designing itself, please try to identify where the errors could occur, i mean at which shapes the errors that might probably occur and there you please use your notify shape.
Even I had this doubt, but lets wait for Adam Arrowsmith answer on this?
Adam Arrowsmith, Could you please help us here? Thanks in advance.
You could send that. Please see this post that will help you for sure: Configuring Notify Shape
And should I trust on notify shape, that it will always report an error or there are some situations when it doesn't report back
The Notify shape always writes to the Process Log but only generates an alert (to which can be subscribed via email) when the "Enable Events" option is checked.
