  3. Click New.

    The New Delegation page opens.

    1. Select a work item type from the Select Work Item Type to Delegate selection list. To delegate all of your work items, select All Work Item Types.

      If you are delegating a role-type, organization, or resource work-item, specify the specific roles, organizations, or resources that should define this delegation by using the arrows to move selections from the Available column to the Selected column.

    2. Delegate Work Items To.

      Select one of the following options:

      • Selected Users. Select to search for users in your scope of control (by name) to be delegates. If any one of the selected delegates has also delegated his work items, then your future work item requests will be delegated to that delegate’s delegates.

      • Select one or more users in the Users Selected area. Alternatively, click Add from Search to open the search feature and search for users. Click Add to add a found user to the list. To remove a delegate from the list, select it, and then click Remove.

        • My Manager. Select to delegate work items to your manager (if assigned).

        • DelegateWorkItemRule. Select a rule that returns a list of Identity Manager user names to which you can delegate the selected work item type.

    3. Start Date. Select the date on which delegation of the work item should start. By default, the day selected begins at 12:01 a.m.

    4. End Date. Select the date on which delegation of the work item should end. By default, the day selected ends at 11:59 p.m.

      Note –

      You can select the same start and end dates to delegate work items for a single day.

    5. Click OK to save selections and return to the list of work items awaiting approval.

      Note –

      After setting up delegation, any work items created during the effective delegation period are added to the delegate’s list. If you end a delegation or the delegation time period expires, then the delegated work items are returned to your list. This may result in duplicate work items on your list. However, when you approve or reject one, then the duplicate will be automatically removed from your list.
