Viewing and Approving Pending Change Sets

All changes that have been selected to require multi approval create change sets. A change set contains one or more add, modify, or delete operations. The change sets can be viewed on the Change Set List page.

To access this page, click System Configuration on the menu and click the Pending Change Set List option.

Viewing a Change Set

Click View next to the change set you want to review. This opens the Change Set page.

When an operator makes changes requiring multi approval, an additional link for Current Change Set appears in the main menu. After the changes have been made, the operator must self approve them. Clicking the Current Change Set option takes the operator straight to the Change Set page of the current change set.

A change set can also be made "current", by clicking the Open button on the Change Set page. The Current Change Set link appears on the main menu.

A current change set can be closed by clicking Close on the Change Set page.

On the Change Set page, you can enter a Description for the change set. Click Save to save the description.

The added, changed, or deleted object can be reviewed by clicking the number next to the listed change. The object is shown with a grayed "page header" and "footer" with additional info on the change set in the header.
