Adding and Deleting Custom Quarantine Search Reasons

About this task

In the Groups Web Interface, the Search Parameters sidebar of the Search tab has a drop-down list from which you can select a Quarantine search. One of the quarantine search options allows you to select a reason that the message was quarantined from the Reason drop-down list.

Global administrators can also add custom reasons to the default set of reasons using the pmx-group command. For example, a global administrator may want to add the reason "Offensive" so that group administrators have the option of searching for messages that were quarantined because they contain offensive language. Once enabled, a custom reason access right can be turned on or off in the same manner as other access rights.

Procedure

  • To add a custom reason:

    At the command line, as the "pmx6" user, run the following:

    pmx-group --add-perm --permission quarantine.reason.<ReasonName>

    A message is displayed, advising that the permission has been added. The new reason will appear in the Reason drop-down list for all group administrators who have been granted access to this feature.

  • To delete a custom reason:

    At the command line, as the "pmx6" user, run the following:

    pmx-group --delete-perm --permission quarantine.reason.<ReasonName>

    A message is displayed, advising that the permission has been deleted. The reason will no longer appear in the Reason drop-down list.

What to do next

Note: The pmx-group command only permits the addition and removal of quarantine.reason permissions.

See the pmx-group man page (man pmx-group) for more information.
