Promoting Requests


Promote requests in order to move their related item revisions to a higher stage in the Global Stage Lifecycle, and optionally, have the related item files deployed to the associated area(s). Promoting a request promotes item revisions related In response to the request, and optionally, any child requests. This method of promotion enables you to group the item revisions that belong to a particular change and promote those items together.

Any refactoring changes that were related to the request will also be deployed.

Promote a request to the next stage in the GSL (REQUEST_PROMOTE_NEXTSTAGE).

Promote a request to any stage in the GSL (REQUEST_PROMOTE_ANYSTAGE).

To deploy promoted requests to a non-default area, you need the Deploy a request (REQUEST_DEPLOY) privilege for the area to which you want to deploy.
