Approval Workflows

You can use approval workflows to perform tasks or commands when users make new service requests and change requests.

Approval workflows allow administrators to either reject or provide consent for requests, and any pre-deployment activity that must occur before provisioning begins. When you create an approval workflow, you make several choices that determine when it's used, and what actions take place.

Some of the tasks that you can perform through an approval or pre-provisioning workflow include:

  • Obtain approval or rejection of a service request
  • Track emails about the approval
  • Run pre-deployment scripts
