How To Send Emails Using Flogo Apps in TIBCO Cloud Integration

Communication in our daily life is incredibly important, so why should that be any different when you’re building integration processes? Sending emails is still considered an important part of day to day operations. For example when errors occur in your integration flows, you might want to send an email. In this tutorial I’ll walk you through sending an email, and in my case I’ll use Gmail as provider.

Note: you might need to create an ‘App Specific Password’ if your account uses two-factor authentication

Rather than a lot of text, I thought it would be nice to see a lot of pictures this time around :)
