Viewing and responding to approval requests
In BMC Helix Innovation Studio, Approval Console is available with the Approval Library (BMC Helix Innovation Studio > Applications > Approval > Visit Deployed Application). The Approval Console displays all the approval requests of your applications. You can update an approval request by using the Approval Console.
You can use the Approval Console to perform the following activities:
- Searching for or filtering approval requests
- Viewing approval request details
- Approving or rejecting requests
- Putting requests on hold
- Reassigning a request to another approver
- Creating or responding to More Information requests
- Viewing approved, rejected, and cancelled requests
From the Approval Console, you can act on single or multiple requests at one time without opening each request individually.
