Does anyone know if you can configure Portal to send group owners an email when users request to join their group?  Users are not in Portal every day and could go weeks without ever getting into Portal to see if someone has requested to join their group.

That would be nice.

Hi Jayson,

Portal for ArcGIS does NOT have the ability to send email notifications. This functionality is not available in the software.

Hope this helps,

I know it's not currently available, just wondering if anyone has figured out a way to make it happen via other "methods" I guess.

I haven't tried this, or investigated, but is that join request lingering in a json somewhere? Then you could scrape the json with python, and fire your email event from there...

This doesn't notify you, but this thread contains a solution to automatically add users from AD groups to PTL groups. https://community.esri.com/thread/208978-arcgis-portal-active-directory-groups-questions

This post has intrigued me, as well as why there isn't an email notification option baked in. Looking at Group Applications—ArcGIS REST API: Users, groups, and content | ArcGIS for Developers , it looks like there is a json/python solution, but I'm not motivated enough to write it......

Bump.  We need email notifications, group owners might not notice membership requests for weeks.

I would recommend someone posting this under the ArcGIS Ideas page:

https://community.esri.com/community/arcgis-ideas 

You can then share the link back to this post so others can promote this idea.  This will be the fastest route to get this implemented.
