Extended Email Plugin does not support groups of users

Although the default value for to is "group[Incident Email Group]", this does not work.

The finer logging writes: "the following e-mail address is incorrect: 'group[Incident Email Group]'"

When I look at the code of the plugin this makes sense, because nothing is done with the "to" field before it's translated to an Adress.

It would be great if groups are supported, because specifying email addresses directly in the plugin config requires a lot more maintenance.

Hey Bert,

Please refer the attached document, extended-mail-action-plugin-release-096.docx, which does specify that the default value must be removed. In my experience, we have used an Outlook distribution list as in the "to" field to simply the maintenance.

This is a very interesting document indeed. Thank you for that.

Using an Outlook distribution list also crossed our mind, but since AppMon recently has a REST API for user management, I think it would be technically possible now to support AppMon groups as well.

Whenever I find some time, I will fork the github repo and try to implement this feature.

Is it not possible to send emails to groups using this plugin?

No, currently it's not.
