Work Items

If a job requiring approval is created, an approval process will have to be created. The job requiring approval will display in the approvers Work Items tab. Until approved, the job will remain idle if unscheduled. If time has elapsed on a scheduled job needing approval, the job will fail. This control allows the approver to verify the deployment details, and choose the time it is deployed. Notifications are sent to users who are eligible to complete an approval step if the system is configured with an email server and the user has an email address set.

View Details of Process

In the Works Items tab, the approver can view the name of the process, when the request was submitted, who requested the process, and the snapshot or version used. The approver can also view details of the environment or resource by clicking the link in the Environment/Resource column. They can view the details of the target by clicking the link in the target column. Or view details on the request by selecting the View Request in the Actions column. The Actions column is also where the approver can respond to the request.

Responding to Request

To respond to a request, display the Respond dialog box by clicking Respond in the Actions column. The approver has the option of leaving a comment. If a request is rejected the process will not run. If approved, the process will begin.
