    There appears to be an approval issue with this service pack.

    I created 2 individual approval mapping for Global Review Process and then tested this for change request.

    It is bypassing the approval.

      Hi,

      Can you please confirm whether all the steps to configure approval mappings were followed?

      If you could let us know the exact details of mappings you configured, the problem can be investigated in depth.

      Thanks and regards,

      Mokshada

    I figured this out and also discussed this with BMC. Below is the update after discussion.

     

    The company field in various tabs of approval mapping is automatically populated in this version. Whereas it used to be dot (.) in the previous version. Once I replaced the Change Implementer company with dot, approvals started working.
