To approve a work item using a digital signature, you must first set up the digital signature as described in Configuring Digitally Signed Approvals and Actions.
From the Identity Manager Administrator interface, select Work Items.
Click the Approvals tab.
Select one or more approvals from the list.
Enter comments for the approval, and then click Approve.
Identity Manager prompts you and asks whether to trust the applet.
Identity Manager displays a dated summary of the approval.
Enter or click Browse to locate the keystore location. (This location is set during the signed-approval configuration, as described in Step 10m of the To Enable Server-Side Configuration for Signed Approvals Using PKCS12 procedure. )
Enter the keystore password (this password is set during the signed-approval configuration, as described in Step 10l of the procedure To Enable Server-Side Configuration for Signed Approvals Using PKCS12).
Click Sign to approve the request.
After signing an approval, subsequent approval actions require only that you enter the keystore password and then click Sign. (Identity Manager remembers the keystore location from the previous approval.)
