Shipment Request Status

To find out whether individual shipment requests have been processed, have been delivered, the prices, the inventory from which they came, etc., either:

  • Click the shipment request ID in the ID column on the Shipments tab
  • Click the shipment request ID in the Recent Shipments section of the Dashboard.

The screenshot below shows one of the most common errors: the recipient’s company name is missing, and in the cases where this error appears, there are multiple companies at the address given. No costs are displayed because nothing was shipped.

Shipment Request ID Popup

The delivery shipping costs are covered in Shipping.

Note

Sometimes the information on the shipment request ID popup is so voluminous that to dismiss the popup, you need to hit the Escape key.

Downloading the CSV File of Shipment Requests

Organization owners, admins, and auditors can download a record of the shipment requests that have been made (the information on the Shipments tab) as a CSV file by clicking the Download CSV button next to the Shipment request button on the Shipments tab. There are two options:

  • The entire contents can be downloaded - i.e., all the rows in the table, even if there are multiple pages.
  • Search results. If a search term is entered into the Search field, the rows containing the search term will be downloaded as a CSV file.

To download the shipments table as a CSV file,

  • To get the whole table, ensure the Search field is empty, and click Download CSV.
  • To get only those rows of the table that contain a particular word or partial word, enter your search term into the Search field, and click Download CSV:

Notifying End-Users of Shipment and Delivery

The YubiEnterprise Delivery system automatically notifies recipients by email when products are sent to them (see the SHIPPED template below) and when they are delivered (see the DELIVERED template below) .

If there is a problem with delivery, the system automatically sends an email notification to the person who made the shipping request (see the DELIVERY EXCEPTIONS template below).

The variables in angle brackets in the templates below are automatically replaced.

Customizing the Automated Emails

One of the primary reasons for customizing the automated emails is when you do not need your end-users to reach out directly to Yubico if they have questions. Usually it is desirable for end-users to contact your own organization’s IT department if they have issues understanding how YubiKeys fit into your organization’s services access model.

These standard emails can be customized by adding text to the existing standard email templates. The custom text is inserted in the standard template at the place where <Custom text, if any> is located in the templates shown above. Note that the SHIPPED and DELIVERED emails are sent to every recipient, so customization is not suitable for sending an individual greeting.

Step 1:

On the Settings page, go to the Email tab and select the template to be customized: SHIPPED, DELIVERED, or DELIVERY EXCEPTIONS.

_images/send-sample-customized-email.png
Step 2:

Insert the text into the Custom text field. This field can accept any valid HTML, including scripts. Web and email links can be inserted as HTML link elements. Put the link target in the href attribute, and put the display text for the link between the angle brackets. For example:

Please visit <a href="https://yubico.com">Yubico's webpage</a> for more information, or
email <a href="mailto:someone@yourcompany.com">someone@yourcompany.com</a>.
Step 3:

Click Update.
