About Baseline Lifecycles

Baselines have lifecycles that are determined by the baseline type. Each baseline type can have a different lifecycle. The administrator uses the Administration Console to define the lifecycle and the roles that move the baseline from one state to another. Roles are assigned to Dimensions CM users so they can action the baseline to each state in the lifecycle.

An example of a typical baseline lifecycle is shown in the following diagram.


Users with the appropriate roles can action the baseline along the lifecycle. With each completed action, an email message is sent to the user with the next role in the lifecycle and the baseline is added to the user's Baselines inbox.
