Set priority for an operational state CI Lifecycle Management allows multiple operators or automations to simultaneously set different operational states for a CI. A CI can have only a single operational state, so in this case, the cumulative operational state of the CI is set to the one with the highest priority. It is recommended that you specify a priority for each operational state that you define so that a cumulative state can be correctly calculated. About this task Procedure Navigate to Configuration > CI Lifecycle Management > Operational State Priority. On the Operational State Priority page, click the operational state for which you want to set or update priority. Enter a Priority and click Update. Smaller numbers represent higher priority.
