Email endpoint can't send email in own vps, forgot password didn't run


#6

Can you post your Configurator file? I have a server running in an azure vm and my smtp E-Mail Server is working without a problem.


#7

where is the con

figurator file?, is it config.json? that in var/snap/thinger-maker-server/common/config.json?


#8

Yes this is the config file:

I thing domain should be “gmail.com”.
Host should be "smtp.gmail.com"
and sercure should be “true”

Does it work?

Best regards,
Mav


#9

Did you tried with domain as gmail.com, and username m.januar.susanto ?

Hi, have you been able to solve your problem? I think I’m in a similar situation
I can not configure the mail, or hotmail, or gmail, probe with several ports, I’m missing something.
Is there any place where you keep the log? to see what is happening?
I do not think it’s the sketch, since I’m with a basic example.
Thank you

Hello,
Any update regarding this issue?

I’ve got similar issue. I hosted a VPS thingerio server and I added smtp configuration in config.json using my gmail account, then saved it.
When i tried to restart the thingerio, it resulted failed warning like this :

#sudo service snap.thinger-maker-server.thingerd status

It happened frequently whenever i restarted thingerio.
it cannot be like this, since every change on config file we have to restart the thingerio.
Is it a bug for thingerio? @alvarolb
Anyone experience the same?

Hi, looking at the log, the errors shown happened once at the startup (all in the same minute and almost the same second, so the server is refusing to start, although snap is trying many times). Probably due to a malformed JSON config file, or bad parameters. So, check out your config file and try to see if there is any information in the log.


#13

Hi, i’ve check my config.json file after adding smtp parameter.
My smtp parameter on config file is like this:

“email” : {
“domain” : “gmail.com”,
“type” : “smtp”,
“smtp” : {
“host” : “smtp.gmail.com”,
“port” : “465”,
“username” : “astonix”,
“password” : “****************”,
“secure” : true
}
},

Is there any misconfiguration on my smtp parameter?

Today, i tried to delete those smtp parameter, restart thingerio, then the platform is working fine.


#14

UP!

Is anyone has the same experience regarding SMTP parameters on config file?


#15

Okay,

i’ve tried another email service like Sendgrid to use SMTP relay for sending email notification.
Here’s my SMTP parameters on config.json based on SendGrid setting :

“email” : {
“domain” : “sendgrid.com”,
“type” : “smtp”,
“smtp” : {
“host” : “smtp.sendgrid.net”,
“port” : “465”,
“username” : “kirimemail”,
“password” : “*****************************”,
“secure” : true
}
},

When i restarted thinger service, it looks failed. I’ve tried another port like 587 (for unencrypted), but still failed. Then i delete all of SMTP parameters, restarted thinger and thinger service working fine.

I think this is a bug in thinger platform when using SMTP parameters on config file .

I am pushing a new snap version right now which should solve the SMTP problems with Gmail (tested with my own account). It also fixes many other issues of custom deployments, i.e, links for download exported buckets, links for complete registration with email, password recovery, etc. Will keep you updated when you can test the new beta version :wink:


#17

Hi, good news!
I am waiting for your update to test the new beta version.
Thanks.


#18

Hi @astonix,

you can try the beta release update now… but it is not a definitive release. Please update with

sudo snap refresh thinger-maker-server --beta

The email configuration changed a little bit, and has ben tested fine with Gmail accounts.


 	"email" : {
   	"type" : "smtp",
   	"domain" : "gmail.com",
   	"sender" : "alvarolb",
   	"smtp" : {
   		"host" : "smtp.gmail.com",
   		"port" : "465",
   		"username" : "alvarolb@gmail.com",
   		"password" : "USE AN APPLICATION KEY IF YOU HAVE 2FA",
   		"secure" : true
   	}
   }

Note that there is now a sender and domain field, that will be used to compose the final sender email (in this case alvarolb@gmail.com). This is required, as some SMTP servers use a username different than the sender (i.e. Amazon SES).

This beta version fixes several problems while downloading buckets, password reminder, email verification, logging, dashboards sharing, and add a new feature for testing endpoints. It is the new base for the next planned features! :slight_smile:

Best.


#19

Hi @astonix did you tested the beta version and the email? Let us know!

Best!

Hi @alvarolb
I just updated to the beta version.
When i checked thingerio status, it seems like thingerio is active but cannot be accessed by browser.

Looks like it needs more plugins for the beta version, isnt’it?


#21

No, it should work! Enable the logs and check them. I recommend you to enable log level trace.


#22

Hi @astonix, we have updated the final version of the snap package. There was a problem accessing the server over SSL in the BETA version. Now it should be fixed, along with the other mentioned features… Please, give us some feedback :wink:


#23

Hi @alvarolb
Now, our thinger platform can be accessed via web browser with https connection, thanks for the update to 1.5.19 version.
The SMTP configuration still cannot be implemented, thinger application is always failed when i tried to restart. This is my SMTP config :

“email” : {
“type” : “smtp”,
“domain” : “gmail.com”,
“sender” : “astonix”,
“smtp” : {
“host” : “smtp.gmail.com”,
“port” : “465”,
“username” : "astonix@gmail.com",
“password” : “my_gmail_password”,
“secure” : true
}
}

The log file when i restarted thinger is below :

systemd[1]: snap.thinger-maker-server.thingerd.service: Main process exited, code=dumped, status=6/ABRT
systemd[1]: snap.thinger-maker-server.thingerd.service: Unit entered failed state.
systemd[1]: snap.thinger-maker-server.thingerd.service: Failed with result ‘core-dump’.
systemd[1]: snap.thinger-maker-server.thingerd.service: Service hold-off time over, scheduling restart.
systemd[1]: Stopped Service for snap application thinger-maker-server.thingerd.
systemd[1]: snap.thinger-maker-server.thingerd.service: Start request repeated too quickly.
systemd[1]: Failed to start Service for snap application thinger-maker-server.thingerd.

Does anyone had the same issue like this?

Hi, check that your JSON is well formed (you can use online tool validators). We well try to improve the error reporting in such cases. If your server is failing on every start, it seems to be a configuration problem (i.e., malformed JSON document).


#25

Hello, I am using a local Thinger.IO server and our own Mail server, Within our network SMTP Authentication is not necessary. I tried leaving password blank, and changing secure to false. but it fails to work. The SMTP log files say that it is being rejected during the Authentication Process.

Thank you for your help
