Field Description
Workflow Select a Workflow. The approval workflow should return a value of approved to complete the operation.
Active Select the check box to make the action available to the policy.
Manager Approval One or all of the following:
  • Select the Manager Approval check box to require the manager of the approver to also approve the request. The default approval workflow goes to the manager first, then to the group, and finally to the user.
  • Select a user group from the Assignment Group list.
  • Unlock the User lock, select a user from the list, then close the lock.
Assignment group Select the assignment group that can approve the request. Any user in the group can approve the action using the default workflow. The approval then goes to the users in the User field.
Note: Users in an assignment group that do not have the itil role still receive an approval record and notification by default, but they cannot perform the approval. Assign the itil role to any users or user groups that must make operational and provisioning approvals.
User Select one or more users to whom the approval action applies. All selected users must approve the action using the default workflow.
