ProcedureTo Enable or Disable Change-Approval and Change-Notification Work Items

By default, change-approval work items are enabled for all role types. This means that every time a role is changed (whether it is a Business Role, an IT Role, an Application, or an Asset), if the role has an owner, the owner must approve the change in order for the change to be made.

For more information on change-approval and change-notification work items, see Initiating Change-Approval and Approval Work Items.

Use the following steps to enable or disable change-approval and change-notification work items for role types, follow these steps:
