Enabling users to delegate approvals

As a BMC Digital Workplace administrator, you can enable the delegation feature so that approvers can assign their approval requests to alternate approvers. By using this feature, end users can decrease the number of unresolved requests if they cannot process them on time (for example, due to an absence).

Types of approvals that can be delegated

Delegation is supported for the following types of approvals:

  • Requests from BMC Remedy Service Request Management 
  • Requests from BMC HR Case Management


For BMC HR Case Management, the delegation feature is supported only if BMC HR Case Management and Remedy IT Service Management are installed on the same AR System server.

The delegation feature is not supported for users who have the Standard Viewer role in BMC HR Case Management.

Before you begin

From the BMC Digital Workplace Admin console, perform the following steps:

  1. Select Configuration > Approval, and then select the Alternate approvals check box.
