Action wizard

In the Action wizard, you move one or more Dimensions CM requests, items, baselines, or projects/streams to a new lifecycle state.

If the objects are being actioned to a lifecycle state that is associated with a stage in the Global Stage Lifecycle, they are also promoted to that stage. If there are any default areas associated with the project/stream, the item files are automatically deployed to those areas.

For a single object, use the Attributes tab/page to view and change the object's user-defined attributes.

Use theAdd a Comment page to include an optional comment for the action.

Use the Delegate to Other Users page to delegate the selected object(s) to other users, assign other users a role on the object(s) or remove previously delegated users.

On the Select Lifecycle State page, you specify the lifecycle state to action the object to:
