FancyEmail ZenPack

The ZenPack provides a new Notification type, FancyEmail, which is based on the standard Email notification but whose body and clear_body contain html formatting rather than simple text. They also include image banners.


The ZenPack Catalog has moved to its new home at https://www.zenoss.com/product/zenpacks as of January 17, 2017. The following information may be out of date, and this page will eventually be removed.


This ZenPack is developed by the Zenoss user community and supported via our online forums. Zenoss, Inc. does not provide direct support for this ZenPack.


Version 1.1.0- Download
Summary of changes: HTML emails, including table format and banner images
Released on 2014/11/18
Compatible with Zenoss Core 4.2.x, Zenoss Resource Manager 4.2.x


See the README.rst for details. Don't forget to restart zenactiond after installing the ZenPack. If you already have a FancyEmail notification and you modify / reinstall the ZenPack, the existing notification will not have the benefit of any changes so always remember to create a new notification to test.

The ZenPack introduces non-standard event fields which need to be set in the transform of the top-level eventClass. Code is included in root_transform.txt.


Normal Installation (packaged egg)

  1. Download the appropriate egg file for the version of Zenoss you are running.
  2. Ensure you are logged in as the zenoss user:
    $ sudo su - zenoss
  3. Install the ZenPack:
    $ zenpack --install ZenPacks.skills1st.FancyEmail-*.egg
  4. Restart these services:
    $ zenhub restart; zopectl restart; zencationd restart

Developer Mode Installation

  1. Ensure you are logged in as the zenoss user:
    $ sudo su - zenoss
  2. Start by cloning the upstream repository:
    $ git clone https://github.com/jcurry/ZenPacks.skills1st.FancyEmail.git
  3. Next, perform the installation:
    $ zenpack --link --install ZenPacks.skills1st.FancyEmail
  4. Finally, restart these serivices:
    $ zenhub restart; zopectl restart; zencationd restart
