An approval process contains at least one step, and each step is approved by a client, a CAB, a location approver, or a department approver.

In the following example, a one-step approval process is created, the IT Department Approver is assigned as the approver, and the IT General/Other > Upgrade Request type is associated with the process.

Prerequisites

This is the fourth task in the approval process example scenario. Before you start, you must complete the previous tasks:

  3. Enter a name for the process and click Save.
