Configuring categorization settings for release templates

The values you configure in a release template's Categorization tab are used to add information to the operational and product categorization sections of the Classification tab in the Release form.

  • Operational categorization is based on a three-tier hierarchy defined in the Operational Catalog Setup form. The Operational Categorization Selection settings add information to the operational categorization fields in the Classification tab of the Release form.
  • Product categorization is based on a five-tier hierarchy defined in your Product Catalog Setup form. The Product Categorization Selection settings add information to the product categorization fields in the Classification tab of the Release form.

To configure categorization/process settings

  1. From the Application Administration Console, click the Custom Configuration tab.
  2. From the Application Settings list, choose Release Management > Template > Template, then click Open. The Release Template form appears.
  3. Click the Categorization tab.
  4. Select a Business Justification to indicate the business reason for implementing the release request (for example, Corporate Strategic). Business justification information is important when the request goes through the approval process. You use this information to make sure funding is available to implement the release.
  5. Select the appropriate operational categorizations for Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3. Here you configure the three-tier hierarchy defined in your operational catalog.
  6. Select the appropriate product categorizations for Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3, Product Name, and Model/Version. Here you configure the five-tier hierarchy defined in your product catalog. If you do not see the appropriate product, continue to make selections in product categorization until you see the appropriate product.
  7. Click Save.
