Re: Approval groups configuration in SM 9.60

It depends on how you setup the approvals.

In OOB, the assignment group(table:assignment) is also used for the approval groups. You can set the approvers of that group in the approvers tab. 

For example, if you want to use an approval group in the Approval defenition record,

1.  Create/ update the assignment group record with the approvers in Approvers tab of assignment group

2. Go to approval definition record. Enter the Assginment group name in the Group/oper field.

When the approval definition is used, all the Approvers of the assignment group will be able to see the change.

I believe as of SM 9.40 the use of cm3groups in the change managment is depricated. 

Thanks.

Give Kudos if it helps.

Re: Approval groups configuration in SM 9.60

Hi,

Thanks for your reply, i am also under same impression that cm3groups are deprecated and i tried to create a approval definitions by configuring with assignment groups and improver's in assignment group.

Assignment groups are tagging in the change request, but approvers are not showing.

Do we have any KB or document from support to understand the complete functionality of assignment groups of SM9.60.

 

Thanks,

Narendra

Hi Narendra, cm3groups were deprecated. Now it's assignment groups only. U can find this information on the online help: https://docs.microfocus.com/SM/9.60/Codeless/Content/change/concepts/Change_Mgmt/Change_Mgmt_Defining_Approvers.htm
