Prime Request dialog box

In the Prime Request dialog box, create a Dimensions CM request based on an existing Dimensions CM request.

In the General tab, edit the title, description, affected design parts, and file attachments for the new Dimensions CM request.

For details on how to change the user-defined attributes, see the Attributes tab/page.

Guidelines and behaviors:

  • An attribute is copied only if it has been specified in the Prime Mapping in the Administration Console for the request type(s) involved. You can change these attributes if you wish.

  • The detailed description of the new request is either copied from the detailed description of the priming request, or from another attribute, depending on what has been specified in the Prime Mappings defined in the Administration Console.

  • If an attribute is mandatory, and it has not been specified in the Prime Mapping, you need to enter it in the Attributes tab.

  • You can save a request as draft without having to complete all the mandatory fields. If you click the Submit as Draft button the request is added to your draft list even if there are mandatory fields that have not been entered.
