Create API endpoint for sending emails

Hi,

I am trying to set up dataiku API to send email to custom users with custom message once endpint gets triggered. because scenarios can not run in parallel i would not be able to use the following suggestion.

https://knowledge.dataiku.com/latest/kb/o16n/automation/How-to-programmatically-set-email-recipients...

is there any other way to get it working in Dataiku?

Hi @NiloofarDadras,

If you want to send an email from an API endpoint, it's probably easiest to do this simply through a Python function in the API endpoint, and use Python to send the email.  You can likely use the Python email package or any similar package. 

Here is an example:

Here is the example Python function endpoint code where my SMTP server is running on 0.0.0.0:1025:

import smtplib

# Import the email modules we'll need
from email.message import EmailMessage

# Insert here initialization code

# This function is the entry point for your Python function API
# You can call this function with passing "param1", "param2",
# "param3" as arguments to the API call
# (see REST API documentation)
def api_py_function():
    
    print('do some stuff')
    
    print('sending email')
    

    msg = EmailMessage()
    msg.set_content('Your endpoint executed with the following results...')

    msg['Subject'] = 'Endpoint email'
    msg['From'] = 'sarina@dataiku.com'
    msg['To'] = 'sarina@dataiku.com'

    # Send the message via our own SMTP server.
    s = smtplib.SMTP('0.0.0.0:1025')
    s.send_message(msg)
    s.quit()

    return {}


Thanks,
Sarina
