You can configure any other notification modules with WSO2IS or extend the existing email sending module; WSO2IS contains an email sending module with WSO2IS which is based on Axis2.

  1. Implement custom notification module by implementing the org.wso2.carbon.identity.mgt.NotificationSendingModule interface. You can find a sample project from here. This module is sending a JSON payload to a given endpoint as the notification.

  2. Copy your implementation as a .jar file into the /repository/components/lib directory.

  3.  Register the module using /repository/conf/security/identity-mgt.properties file.

Please add following property in to the file.


4.   Restart the server.

5.   Try out by sending the notification type as JSON. Please note the value “JSON” is configured in the custom module as the getNotificationType() value.

6.   notifyUser() method of your implementation would be executed. In sample module, you can see that it is sent a JSON to a given end-point url.
