Specifying risk level at the Review and Authorize stage
This section describes how to define a risk level for a change.
To specify the risk level at the Review and Authorize stage
- Open the change request.
- Use the Process Flow Status bar to move the change request to the Review & Authorize stage.
In the Risk Level field on the Change form, select the appropriate level of risk for the change request, and then click Save.
The range of risk runs from Lowest Risk Level 1 to Highest Risk Level 5. Alternatively, you can use the risk value computed based on your answers to a series of predefined questions (as described in the Computing risk levels section) or a derived risk factor, if configured (as described in the Configuring risk assessment). Risk value can be computed based on a combination of predefined questions and derived risk factors.
In previous releases, the Risk Level value was updated only after you saved the Change request. Starting from Service Pack 2 for version 8.1.00, you can view the latest risk level by clicking thebutton next to the Risk Level field even when the Change request is in the Modify mode. Risk level calculation is based on the modified values on the current screen.
