Set Approvers and Implementers
Once the user group work authorizations are defined, an approver and implementer (optional) need to be defined. To begin, navigate to Admin > Users & Policy > Authorization Settings
Approvers and Implementer definitions can be global or per object type. In this example, both are defined for object type IP Set. As a result, any job for a user in Authgroup2 attempting to create an IP Set, will be put into the approval process queue.
Custom Fields – allows administrators to define fields a requester must fill out before submitting the job. In example below, Customer Name was defined as a required entry. As a result, any requestor is required to enter a Customer Name into the request before proceeding. Custom fields allow jobs to include data that could be important for an approver to know before approving – such as Customer Name, Job ID, Change Request #, etc….
Approvers – add more or more approvers to receive email and login notifications that jobs are pending their approval.
Implementers – add more or more implementers to receive email and login notifications that jobs have been approved and ready to be run.
Copy Settings from Global – a one-time copy from global settings that will mirror the custom fields, approvers, implementers, reminder and implementer settings.
Remind Approvers Daily – a flag that can be set to email the approver(s) of a job daily until action is taken against the job (approve or deny)
Allow Requester to Implement Job – a flag that can be set that authorizes the requester to run the job once it is approved.
