Proposed changes

You can pre-configure changes to configuration items (CIs) and their associated relationships by using proposed changes. These changes are prepared for implementation and then applied at a later time.

When you view a CI, you can display any proposed changes to see what is planned for the CI.

Proposed changes are useful when you want to make modifications while a change process is in the approval stage, and only implement the changes after the approvals are complete. If a change is never approved, there are no record changes to reverse. If the change is approved, a quick command applies all the proposed changes.

You can make the following proposed changes to a CI:

  • Modify any field on the CI form.
  • Add, modify, or delete a relationship to the CI.

You cannot delete a proposed change.
