  1. In the Apigee UI, select your Apigee Organization.
  2. Click Develop > Integrations.
  3. Select an existing integration or create a new integration by clicking CREATE INTEGRATION.

    This opens the integration in the integration designer page.

  4. In the integration designer, click +Add a task/trigger > Tasks to view the list of available tasks.
  5. Click and place the Send Email task element in the integration designer.
  6. Click the Send Email task element on the designer to open the Send Email task configuration pane.

    All changes to the properties are saved automatically.

Configuration properties

The following table describes the configuration properties of the Send Email task.

Property Data type Description
Recipients String Email address of the recipient(s). You can specify multiple email addresses separated by a comma.
Subject String Email subject line.
Body String Email body in plaintext.

You can set the properties to any of the following values:

  • A literal
  • An integration variable
  • A combination of a literal and an integration variable

You can enter combinations of literals and integration variables for the string values. Use dollar sign notation for variable names, that is, precede and follow the variable name with a $ sign. For example, if you want to use a variable $varSubject$ in the email Subject, you will enter text similar to Test $varSubject$ where Test is a literal and $varSubject$ is the variable.

Retry on failure

You can configure various retry strategies to handle errors in a task. The retry strategies allow you to specify how to rerun the task or integration in case of an error. For more information, see Error handling strategies.
