Action baseline items
When you action baseline items, you move items in a baseline to a new lifecycle state.
PRIVILEGES: Action Item to Next State to action the items to a valid next state. Action Items to Any State to action the items to a lifecycle state without a valid transition.
To action baseline items:
Select a baseline.
Select Baseline > Action > Baseline Items.
In the Action Baseline Items dialog box, change the Item Specification Filter if needed. Use wildcards to select multiple item specifications:
An underscore (_). Matches exactly one character. For example,
An asterisk (*) or percent sign (%). Matches any number of characters. For example,
Item specifications have the following format:
From the New Status list, select the next status for the items.
If you leave this field empty, Dimensions CM automatically selects the next normal lifecycle status.
Note: If you do not have the Action baselines to any state privilege, the new status must be reached from the current status by a single normal lifecycle transition.
(Optional) For Action description, enter a comment. The default comment is:
Item actioned from <previous status> to <new status>
