Approval processes define who needs to approve the end-user request for a new workspace before this workspace gets created using SysKit Point.

Approval Processes

To start with the configuration, open the Settings > Governance > Approval Processes screen.

Your Approval Processes list shows you which approval types will be available to use in provisioning templates.

By default, SysKit Point provides 3 approval processes:

  • Manager approval – manager of the end-users requesting new workspace needs to approve this request
  • Admin approval – SysKit Point admins need to approve this request
  • Manager and admin approval – requires approval from both manager of the requester and SysKit Point admins

Create a Custom Approval Process

To create your custom approval process from scratch, click on the New Approval Process button. You will need to define several settings:

  • Approval Process Name – give a name to this approval process; this will be displayed in the template wizard

  • Number of stages for this approval – how many levels of approval each request needs to go through before it is finally approved. Current options are:

    • 1-stage – only one person/group will need to approve this request
    • 2-stage – 2 people/groups will need to approve this request
    • 3-stage - 3 people/groups will need to approve this request
  • Approver for each stage – for each stage, you can choose between the manager of the requester, SysKit Point administrators or provide specific people that will be responsible for this level (multi-select allowed)
