Inspecting a Request From the Requests List

To inspect a request from the Requests list:

  1. Click Requests.

  2. In the Actions column for the request, click select ellipsis button, and then click Inspect.

When you inspect a request you see:

  • Summary: Displays information about the request including the type of request (Interactive or Subscription), the number of request items, number of days since the request was created, and the number of issues with the request.

    If the request was generated from a subscription, the original request title and the subscriptions are displayed as well. Click the request title or a subscription title to open them in the inspector to get more details about how the subscription request originated.

    If the request was automatically submitted as part of a subscription or an import, the Owner field displays "Auto-Submitted".

  • Details: Displays a collapsed list of request items showing the affected node and the actions that were taken on the node, as well as the action type, node type, application, and the person who performed the action. Expanding a request item shows what specifically was done to the node. You can delete individual request actions on a request item or request item instance. See Inspecting Request Items.


    For completed requests, the collapsed list of request items cannot be expanded. Use the Audit tab to view the transaction details for the request. You can still download the request details for a completed request. See Viewing the Transaction History for a Request.
  • Comments: Displays any comments for the request including hyperlinks if provided.
