How to setup a notification when a client opens a case through the self-service portal

Hello! Looking for assistance on how best to create an email notification when a client opens a case through the self-service portal. I’ve tried a business event and an automation notification but can’t seem to get the email to send for portal created cases. Ideally, the email that gets generated has the client who submitted the case in the to email and then an internal email cced so we are notified when a client opens a case through the portal. Currently, we have no way of knowing when a client created case is created besides looking at our list of open cases.

I have a business event notification set up currently to send the email when a case is created, but it seems to be excluding any cases created through the portal.

Thanks!

Hello @hayleehicks18 ,

According to Business Events form reference and 

article,

If a business event needs to be triggered by the changes made in Acumatica Self-Service Portal the related generic inquiry must be added to the Self-Service Portal site map. If the related generic inquiry is used as an entry point, then the entry point form should be added to the Self-Service Portal site map. In Acumatica Self-Service Portal forms are added to the site map on the Portal Map (SM200521) form.

Hi @Irina,

Thanks for the quick response! I have the attached inquiry to show cases created from the portal case screen ID. This is what my current business event has been trying to use with trigger by record change > for each record > record inserted. Are you saying I need to add this generic inquiry to the portal map and not expose on a workspace for this business event to work correctly? If so, what URL should I be using for tine inquiry on the portal map? Using the GI URL from our main instance is giving an error.

For business event to work for records, created on the portal (i.e. changed by the portal):

  1. On your Acumatica ERP site, open Site Map (SM200520) form. Filter out GI created for the business event. Stay on this tab - you will need values from this row copy-pasted in the next step.

     

  2. Login to your Acumatica Self-Service portal with the user, having Portal Admin access.and open the Portal Map (SM200521) form. Add a new row with the same values (ScreenID, Title, URL) as on the previous step.

     

  3. Save changes.

That’s it. After that your BE will be triggering for all cases, including the ones created on the portal.

Hi @Irina,

I just added the GI to the portal map and tested creating the case from the portal and did not get an email notification. Is my business event setup correctly? Thanks!

@hayleehicks18 could you please try disabling business event by unchecking Active check box, restarting the ERP site on the Apply Updates form, and enabling business event back?

Hi @hayleehicks18, could you resolved this issue with @Irina suggestion?

I tried to do the same thing but it didnt work. And honestly, Im quite confused because I dont understand why is necessary to use the portal map. Its my understanding that if I configured a business event for a screen (cases), any record inserted or changed, the event will trigger despite the origin of the case creation. 

Help please...

@rodrigocid34 This issue is closed already a year ago, I think it would be most beneficial to make a new post and include some screenshots of what isn’t working and the configuration
