I would like to create a multi-stage approval process for change
management requests where the ticket is first approved after peer
review, then approved by the manager. I’ve followed the instructions in
the RT-Essentials book but it doesn’t seem to be working correctly. Here
is the template per the book.
= = =Create-Ticket: peer-approval Queue: _ _ _Approvals Type: approval Owner: email@example.com Content: Please review and approve this request. Depended-On-By: TOP ENDOFCONTENT = = =Create-Ticket: manager-approval Queue: _ _ _Approvals Type: approval Owner: firstname.lastname@example.org Content: Please review and approve this request. Depended-On-By: TOP Depends-On: peer-approval ENDOFCONTENT
The approvals are created but both at the same time, and the manager-approval isn’t dependent on the peer-approval.
What I want to happen is the peer-reviewer must approve the ticket before the manager can. The book implies that this is
what will happen, but it’s not the behavior I’m seeing. RT v3.4.5, btw.
