Add a change request and associate items

  1. Create a new set in your project called "Change requests" to make them easy to find.

  2. Add a new item to that set.

  3. Open the item and select Items to be changed. This button doesn't appear unless configured by an organization administrator.

  4. In the bottom panel that opens, select Associate Items. From the list that appears on the right panel, select which items you want to associate with this change request, then select Associate. You can also double-click on the item to associate it.

  5. The items that you associated appear in the bottom panel with links to those items. Each item is listed with the Starting version when the change request was introduced and the Ending version of the item that fulfills the change request.

    Important

    If an item has the change request tab enabled, it's a change request. Items that are change requests can't be associated with other items that are change requests.

  6. You can edit the association to indicate the starting version when the change request was introduced, the ending version of the item that fulfills the change request, and additional notes. You can also run an Impact Analysisdelete an association, or close a change request.

  7. When you view other items that were associated with this change request, you see the same button in the right toolbar of their Single Item View, as well as any change requests they're associated with in the bottom panel.

    Tip

    When the change request author locks the change request, it can't be edited. This way the author can moderate the progress of requested items to be changed, can update associations, or close the change request as edits are made.
