The Requests tab has two subtabs: Launch Requests and View.
On the Launch Requests tab users have two choices: Update My Roles and Update My Resources.
On the Update My Roles page, users can request from a list of available roles that may be appropriate for the user. When the end-user submits a role request, a work item is generated and an approval notification is sent to the designated approvers for that role. End-users can also request that they be removed or deassigned from one or more roles.
See the Chapter 5, Roles and Resources chapter for information on how to create optional roles that end-users can request access to.
On the Update My Resources page, users can request from a list of individual resources that may be appropriate for the user. As with role-requests, resource-requests generate work items that require an approval before they can be processed.
The View subtab displays status details for requests submitted by the user. From this area users can view the process status and task results for the requests they submit.
