When a user requests an application through the Configuration Manager 2012 Software Catalog that requires approval, this approval workflow solution will transform the application request into a Service Manager 2012 Service Request allowing flexible approval lists and activities.

Key features:

  • Sync Configuration Manager 2012 Applications data into Service Manager 2012 CMDB
  • Monitor and transport Configuration Manager 2012 Software Catalog requests requiring approval to Service Manager 2012 and open a Service Request
  • Return the completed approval workflow status to Configuration Manager 2012 for handling
  • Administrators can define and maintain application selection criteria for specific applications or application groups and specific users or user groups
  • Track service application requests and view application catalog contents in Service Manager

Extend your application approval process. End users can easily request applications on-demand using the Configuration Manager 2012 Software Catalog directly or via redirection from the Service Manager 2012 Self-Service Portal. Application requests requiring approval will be routed to Service Manager where custom approver lists and activities can be configured based on user and application properties.
