salt.modules.mandrill

Mandrill

Send out emails using the Mandrill API.

In the minion configuration file, the following block is required:

mandrill:
  key: <API_KEY>

New in version 2018.3.0.

salt.modules.mandrill.send(message, async=False, ip_pool=None, send_at=None, api_url=None, api_version=None, api_key=None)

Send out the email using the details from the message argument.

message
The information on the message to send. This argument must be sent as dictionary with at fields as specified in the Mandrill API documentation.
async: False
Enable a background sending mode that is optimized for bulk sending. In async mode, messages/send will immediately return a status of "queued" for every recipient. To handle rejections when sending in async mode, set up a webhook for the 'reject' event. Defaults to false for messages with no more than 10 recipients; messages with more than 10 recipients are always sent asynchronously, regardless of the value of async.
ip_pool
The name of the dedicated ip pool that should be used to send the message. If you do not have any dedicated IPs, this parameter has no effect. If you specify a pool that does not exist, your default pool will be used instead.
send_at
When this message should be sent as a UTC timestamp in YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS format. If you specify a time in the past, the message will be sent immediately. An additional fee applies for scheduled email, and this feature is only available to accounts with a positive balance.

Note

Fur further details please consult the API documentation.

CLI Example:

$ salt '*' mandrill.send message="{'subject': 'Hi', 'from_email': 'test@example.com', 'to': [{'email': 'recv@example.com', 'type': 'to'}]}"

message structure example (as YAML for readability):

message:
    text: |
        This is the body of the email.
        This is the second line.
    subject: Email subject
    from_name: Test At Example Dot Com
    from_email: test@example.com
    to:
      - email: recv@example.com
        type: to
        name: Recv At Example Dot Com
      - email: cc@example.com
        type: cc
        name: CC At Example Dot Com
    important: true
    track_clicks: true
    track_opens: true
    attachments:
      - type: text/x-yaml
        name: yaml_file.yml
        content: aV9hbV9zdXBlcl9jdXJpb3VzOiB0cnVl
