Available SMS alerting configuration

Field Description
Aggregator The aggregator to use, e.g. Blackboard ConnextTxt, Janet txt, firetext.

Certificate Store URL

The proxy certificate file if one is required. Where the URL for the SMS message centre is https, this is required. The DBA must setup the Oracle Wallet file supplied by OCLC. It will be the same as that used for the Link Checker.
Account User Name / Password The email address and password of your account with the aggregator.
Alerts Sent From The 'from address' that will be included in the SMS messages - i.e. a short piece of text to inform your users that the message is from your library (letters/numbers only and between 3 and 11 characters).
Suppress Unicode?  Set to Yes
Reporting Level The diagnostic level that you want to operate. Normally set to NONE.
Retrieve Statuses?   Normally set to No. The OLIB SMS Service can send status update requests to the aggregator to monitor the progress of the SMS messages it has requested to be sent.
Start Time The earliest time that you would like OLIB to send SMS messages. The SMS messages are actually generated in daystart. However, you may not want OLIB to send SMS messages to your users as early as this. You can therefore set Start Time to a “reasonable” time such as 08:00 so that the texts are actually sent “during normal office hours”.
End Time  Similarly, you may not wish your OLIB system to send texts beyond a certain time of day.
Proxy Server Add the proxy server details if you have to use a proxy server.
Proxy User Name
Proxy Password
User Agent Set to Use default location for UserAgent.
