I made mistake while configured notifications in workflow which made cyclic notification e-mail sending. It flooded our GW Post office thus we were not able to receive e-mails whole day. Would be great if on Vibe side there is some flood prevention mechanism like in groupwise where I can switch on how many e-mails form one address is accepted per sec.


  • From what I see in the API, there is a loop detection. But it prevents not all workflow loops. Flooding Groupwise is bad, but workflow loops fill the mysql database and logs very quickly too. So if someone wants to damage vibe systems this is a very easy task. Even normal users are able to build worklfows in the their personal workspace. So please check loop detection in workflows.
