I am trying to modify the email template for a sharepoint search alert. I have done the following:
Made a copy of the following file:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\XML\alerttemplate.xml
Renamed it to "alerttemplatetest.xml" and made my changes, then ran the following command:
stsadm -o updatealerttemplates -url http://sharepointsite -filename "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\XML\alerttemplatestest.xml"
Then I did the following:
- IIS Reset
- Restart Sharepoint Timer Service
I then relized that the search alert does not use the same alerttemplate.xml file that the other alerts use because the template name is OSS.Search and that does not exist in the file.
In summary my question is how can I edit the template for the Sharepoint Search Alert Emails or if this is even possible?
