fo_notify - Display upload job status. Optionally send email.
fo_notify [-e email-address] [-h] [-j <job-name>] [-n user-name] -u
fo_notify is a dual purpose command. The main purpose of fo_notify is
to act as the email notification agent when email notificiation is
turned on for a user account in the Graphical User Interface. The
status is sent in email and is reported as aborted, failed, still
active or done based on the job queue data-base entries for that
upload. The command can also be run as a cli to report the status of
the upload or send email about it’s status.
The command simply queues the email on the system. The command assumes
that email has been configured properly on the system.
Supply an optional email address to send the results to. If this
option is given, then no output to the terminal will be supplied.
The results are queued in the mail subsystem using the specified
address. Minimal checking is done on the email address format,
make sure it’s correct.
-h Standard help flag, prints usage.
Optional job name. Using this option will change the name of the
job in the message. The job name supplied will be used instead of
the name that was used for the upload at upload time.
Supply a different user name for the message. This simply changes
the name of the addressee in the message that is sent via email.
If no email is being sent, this option has no effect. NOTE, this is
not the email address.
For example, if the user login is goofy, but the user wants to
address the message to the real name of the person. Using the
above example, without -n <user-name> would mean that the message
starts with Dear goofy, ..... using -n ’Mr. Natural’ would change
the message to say Dear Mr. Natural,.....
The upload id to report on. Use fossjobs to find the upload id or
