Configure access points for the Create And Manage Request action
The Create and Manage Request action ensures that tasks or actions defined in a process are executed sequentially, executing a task or action only after the previous one is completed. You must configure the forms and qualifications required to define the criteria for this action to be complete on the Manage Request tab of the BMC Remedy Process Designer Configuration page.
When you add qualifications for field on a custom form, you must define a filter to map the qualification field to a value on the form.
For example, you define a qualification for the incident form:
Char1 = "Completed" OR Char1 = "Cancelled"
You must create a filter to map the Char1 field to the desired value of the HPD:Help Desk form to be able to use this qualification. In this case, Char1 is mapped to the $STATUS$.

When creating a Create And Manage Request action, the configured forms are displayed in the BMC Remedy Process Designer client. Any tasks added to a process using the Create and Manage Request action are completed based on the qualifications you add in the BMC Remedy Process Designer Configuration form.
