Before you begin

Procedure

  1. Navigate to Change > Administration > Standard Change Properties.
    The Standard Change Properties form displays.
  2. On the form, fill in the fields.
    Table 1. Standard change properties form
    Field Description
    Category Select the service catalog category to add the generated standard change template to. You can also choose the category or any child categories of the selected catalog.
    Note: This value is not set automatically on the Proposal form, but must be specified before it is approved.
    Catalog Select the service catalog to add the generated standard change template to.
    Mandatory Change Request values Specify a list of mandatory fields that require values when you propose a new standard change template or a modification to a standard change template.

    This configuration ensures that when a standard change request is created from a standard change template, one or more fields on the Change Request form contain preset values.

    Default Change Request values Specify default values for common fields on the Change Request form.
    Restricted Change Request values Specify the list of fields that end users are not allowed to provide any value for when making a proposal.
    Note: Ensure that internal columns, such as Updates, Updated, Updated by, Domain, Created, Created by are restricted.
    Read-only fields Specify the fields that end users are not allowed to provide any value for in the created standard change request.
    Note: This configuration ensures that for the specified fields, the values approved in the standard change template do not change when the standard change request is submitted.
    Fields to copy Specify the fields whose values are copied to the Propose a New Standard Change Template record producer from a non-standard change request.
    Note: If any fields not specified in this list have default values specified, the default values are copied to the record producer.
  3. Click Update.

What to do next

You can create a standard change catalog. By default, the basic Standard Change Proposal workflow sends approval records to members of the Change Management group and the members should verify and modify the records, as appropriate.
