Hi,

after setting up Taiga 6 (migrated from 5 to 6), the email notifications do not work anymore. Where can I check and change the SMTP settings after the taiga-back container is already running?  

I found a local.py im /taiga-back/settings (inside the taiga_back_1 container), but this seems to be a default settings file...

---snip---
#########################################
## MAIL SYSTEM SETTINGS
#########################################

#DEFAULT_FROM_EMAIL = "jo...@doe.com"
#CHANGE_NOTIFICATIONS_MIN_INTERVAL = 300 #seconds

# EMAIL SETTINGS EXAMPLE
#EMAIL_BACKEND = 'django.core.mail.backends.smtp.EmailBackend'
#EMAIL_USE_TLS = False
#EMAIL_USE_SSL = False # You cannot use both (TLS and SSL) at the same time!
#EMAIL_HOST = 'localhost'
#EMAIL_PORT = 25
#EMAIL_HOST_USER = 'user'
#EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD = 'password'

# GMAIL SETTINGS EXAMPLE
#EMAIL_BACKEND = 'django.core.mail.backends.smtp.EmailBackend'
#EMAIL_USE_TLS = True
#EMAIL_HOST = 'smtp.gmail.com'
#EMAIL_PORT = 587
#EMAIL_HOST_USER = 'your...@gmail.com'
#EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD = 'yourpassword'

# DUMMY EMAIL SETTINGS
EMAIL_BACKEND = 'django.core.mail.backends.dummy.EmailBackend'

Hi! how are you configuring taiga-docker? with environment variables or mapping the config file?

the config file should be mapped to /taiga-back/settings/config.py as it's the path where Django is looking for the configuration.

besides, the recommended way to have an advanced configuration consist on downloading the config.py.prod.example (cause there were some changes in the configuration) and changing there the values with your own, so you can ensure you have the proper configuration.

Let us know if it worked!

Thank you for your help.

I did a docker installation and set the docker-compose variables, which are set in the Taiga-back-async container as environment variables (I did not use config file mapping). I could trigger a test email via manage.py, the smtp server returns an authorization failure.

The user was "user" and the password was "password", obviously default values. Taiga5 send emails via smtp without user and password. Is this is not possible with taiga anymore?

Hi ThorstenH,

You can try to set USERNAME and PASWORD to an empty string (""). This should works like undefined values.


Best regards.
