Managing Approvals

This section walks you through how to manage and approve access requests and covers:


When a user requests access to a tool/task it will be assigned to an appointed approver(s). The request must be successfully approved before the user can gain access.

Manage Approvals page

The Manage Approvals page will allow you to view all the requests that have been assigned to you or your approvers group and their current status.


Requests that have been elapsed for over 48 hours will be removed from the list.
A request has elapsed if the current time has passed its end time (start time + duration).

Approving a request

Requests that are still awaiting approval will show a status of Pending.

To approve a request:
