Description Nicole C. Engard 2016-03-28 13:40:37 UTC
Work to be done: Write a cron script that will
a) Accept parameters for
1) a report id
2) a notice code
3) a notice module
4a) a branchcode
4b) or database column from which to select the branchcode
5) a column from which to select the email address to send to ( if not set, Koha will use the first available email address for the patron )
6a) A "from" email address
6b) A column from which to select the "from" email address
b) The script will run the report and for each row of results will generate a notice and queue it for sending. All and only the columns from the report will be available to be used in the notice text.

Hi,

I have been able to apply the patch but I am not able to send any mail

I have enabled koha mail and I have install postfix... 

may you help me on this, please?

> SENDING_SUCCEED => 0

Heh, the line above is reporting the success of row #0, not a failure. Poor design.

I altered the patch to count up from 1.

Additionally you need the '-commit' option to actually populate the message queue.

Please retest and let me know if that works :-)

2. I think we display something more useful than the error codes

3. Please correct indentation

4. Reading the tests:
is( $result[0]{NO_EMAIL_COL}, 2, "Warning only for patron with no email");
Why 2?

5. The cronjob script has too many use statements

6. I do not think the subroutine should take "commit", maybe it should return the notice instead?
Same for verbose actually.

7. Subroutine takes "branch" whereas the script pass "branchcode" (!)

8. POD says "--report Specify a saved SQL report in the Koha system to user for the emails."
It's actually the *id* (saved_sql.id), maybe it should be more explicit

9. --email, should not we use Koha::Patron->notice_email_address and remove this option?

10.  --from                       specified email for 'from' address, report column 'from' used if not specified

Should not we use branches.branchemail instead?

Okay, we now have readable errors

> 3. Please correct indentation

Ah, I think i fixed it

> 4. Reading the tests:

2 is the row with the error - the returned has includes the error and referenced row (unless borrowernumber not found, then it is the wrong borrowernumber)


> 5. The cronjob script has too many use statements

Yes, CP error, cleaned

Okay, moved those and the sending into the cronjob


> 7. Subroutine takes "branch" whereas the script pass "branchcode" (!)

Oops, fixed

Fixed

This is designed to be more flexible and let the report determine the content - perhaps the library w3ants to check secondary emails or something?

> 10.  --from                       specified email for 'from' address, report

Again, designed for flexibility in allowing report to set this - perhaps we want to send emails for patron clubs and they have their own email?

This was designed to so that it is a cronjob now, but also so it could be used in a script in the GUI.

This was a major refactoring, back to NSO

Bug 16149: Generate and send custom notices based on report output

Ths patch add an EmailReport function to C4::Reports::Guided

It accepts a notice (module, code, branch) and a report and attempts to
email notices to patron, generating content using report content.

Notice must be in template toolkit syntax, only columns in report are
available for notice.

To test:
1 - Specify various options
2 - Ensure errors are returned if options are incomplete or incorrect
3 - Pass a report containing 'from' and 'email' and 'borrowernumber'
columns and ensure message queue populated as expected
