VMware Cloud Automation Center – Email Tester App
Disclaimer: This is an unsupported (but pretty useful) interface into vCAC for various programatic tasks.
Quite often it can be useful to test the setup of email of a configured system, especially the XSLT Email Template format.
The following is a small application I have put together that uses the configuration of a vCAC Server and tests 3 areas:
1) Display the users email address
2) Display the html of the configured xslt template – both on screen and in html output.
3) Test sending an email with the configured settings
