[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Connecting request to email

Email requests are disabled on our ArchivesSpace servers, so I have nothing to add about the config settings. However, if you need to debug on a test server and you don't want to configure sendmail or postfix or actually send messages out ( which I've had to do for testing other services ), and you need to debug addresses or content of generated mail,  I found MailCatcher a very handy tool.

On my test instance I am just using sendmail installed on the server to send out email requests. I haven’t played around with using a separate smtp server server yet. I have also not yet figure out how to enable archivesspace to send emails to different addresses depending on what repository the object is in. I can only get the address in the  pui_email_override config to work. Also, the email is sent but instead of returning to the object I get the "We’re sorry, but something went wrong” page. I’ll attach logs generated after a request is sent below. Here are the configs I have set up to get email working to this point.

AppConfig[:pui_email_enabled] = true
AppConfig[:pui_email_override] = 'fallback at your_email.com’
AppConfig[:pui_request_email_fallback_to_address] = 'fallback at your_email.com’
AppConfig[:pui_request_email_fallback_from_address] = 'fromaddress at your-email.com<mailto:fromaddress at your-email.com>’
AppConfig[:pui_email_delivery_method] = :sendmail
AppConfig[:pui_email_sendmail_settings] = {
   location: '/usr/sbin/sendmail',
   arguments: '-i'
 AppConfig[:pui_email_perform_deliveries] = true
 AppConfig[:pui_email_raise_delivery_errors] = true

Hi all,

I am attempting to connect the request button in AS to our special collections email in the config. It's not working at all. Can someone lead me to how and where I make the changes in the config?

Also, I'm having issues finding documentation regarding how to alter the "Search the Archives" message in the en.yml.  I can easily change the welcome message, but not the "Search the Archives." Any suggestions?

Thanks so much.

My very best,
