Transitions Area

The Transitions area of the Edit Global Stage Lifecycle dialog box displays the possible transitions in or out of the stage you have currently selected in the Lifecycle Model. If no stage has been selected, it displays all transactions for all stages of the lifecycle.

It consists of:

The toolbar contains buttons to perform the following actions.




Allows you to add a new transition using the New Transition dialog box.


Allows you to edit a transition using the Edit Transition Lifecycle dialog box.


Allows you to delete one or more transitions.

The table of transitions and roles contains a row for each combination of transition with each role that is authorized to promote item revisions through this stage. If a role is selected in the role filter, only that role will appear in the list.

Next to each role, there is an icon indicating whether the role is optional or pending.




Optional. This means that promoting an object to the transition's from stage does not require there to be a user holding that role.

If the role is not optional, the promoting will be disallowed if there are no users holding that role.


Pending. The object will appear in the user's inbox and the user will receive email notification when the item is promoted to the from stage for the transition.

If the role is not pending, it will not appear in the user's inbox and the user will not receive email notification, but the user will still be able to perform the promotion.
