DNG: Change Management Constraints

vinitha dsouza (79841) | asked Feb 13, 5:59 a.m.
Hello Team,

We are using DNG with Configuration management.

- i see for the streams we configure changes to be done only via
 1. changeset
 2. Deliver only for the approved changerequest or workitem.

i am in confusion when option 2 to be used. Because already review process in DNG make sure that artifacts are reviewed, then what is the point again to have this condition?

another query, can this option be configurable either via precondition.
what i want to achive is - Deliver if it is linked to workitem (with no restrication on approval state)

Can you please explain?

The second option mandates that you must link the change set to a change request (work item) that is in an approved state. You can't currently hold a review within the context of a change set (enhancement request exists for this). This option provides an additional level of change control for those organizations that require it.

If you don't select the 2nd option, you can still link your change set to a work item; it just doesn't restrict delivery of that change set.

These settings are set per individual stream. There is no precondition.

Hope that helps.
