Release form functional areas

The Release form is used to request a release and track the progress from initiation to completion. This form also shows the impact that the release has to the organization. The Release form is used to assign tasks to different support groups, and you can associate the release to configuration items that are being modified.

Release form and its functional areas

Before you begin searching, creating, or modifying information in the Release form, you must understand the information relationships involved in the different areas of this form. First, you must create assignment mappings to assign a release to a Release Management support group, to an individual, or to both. An individual in the Release Management group must assume the role of Release Coordinator. For information about functional roles and assignment mappings, see Functional roles and extended application access  and Mapping assignments .

The Release form provides an excellent example of the level of integration that can occur between the various modules available among the Remedy ITSM suite as a release request can occur due to an incident, a change to a configuration item, or a known error correction as a result of problem investigation.

You might see additional links appear in the navigation pane for applications that are installed in addition to Change Management.

The Release form has the following functional areas:
