Reassigning release requests

If you cannot work on an assigned release request, you can reassign it to another release coordinator.You can also reassign the release request if it was categorized incorrectly.

Release coordinators are responsible for responding to reassignment requests. When a release coordinator reassigns a release request to another coordinator, the person is notified. Upon reviewing the release, the coordinator can reassign the release to another qualified release coordinator.


You must set a notification rule and define a milestone for it to enable the notification workflow. For more information on setting notification rules, see Configuring notification rules.
