Re: [hylafax-users] AW: AW: Notification for send facsimile doesn t work properly


As I've understood the HylaFAX architecture in relation to the issue you are currently discussing:

The notification options (-R / -D) are loaded into the job file when the client server protocol daemon (hfaxd) creates the fax job.  The fax scheduler process (faxq) then handles the various jobs and depending on the notification options specified in the job file invokes the notify script (bin/notify) to notify the sender.

The notify script has very useful extensibility in using the FaxNotify custom script but that's neither here nor there in relation to the question / issue you've raised.

Hope this helps

Hmm, I don't get it. I looked at the whole notify-script but I could not
find an area where the job status is checked to deliver the notification
or not. Your FaxNotify only says, when the status of the job is "done"
set the returnfiletype to pdf.
I did this for all jobs directly via the notify script, and it works
(when I start the script manually).

Even when I send a fax to a wrong number and the status of the fax is
requeued I don't get a notification.

And when I look at a job it says:

notify: when done+requeued

So I think I should get a notification when the job is done.


Things don't work that way here on HylaFAX (tm) Version 5.2.7.  I must have -R or -D options on the command line or I don't get notified on successful sends.  So I guess that is as it works, not necessarily should work.
