Approve a request for a virtual machine

As an EC2 approver, navigate to Service Desk > My Approvals and approve the virtual machine request.

About this task

Requests for virtual machines in the base system can be approved or rejected by members in either of the following approval groups:
  • EC2 Approvers
  • Virtual Provisioning Cloud Administrators
Only one member of either approval group is required to approve a request.
Note: If the approver rejects the request, the process is finished and no instance is provisioned. The system notifies the user that the request was rejected.


  1. Approver: Pick up the task in Service Desk > My Approvals.
  2. Open the request and click Approved or Rejected.
