Change status "Approved"

Hi,
I have written DB rule in change process that will set the status "To Be Approved" and its working fine...but when the change process is approved from the CAB, the status doesnt change to "APPROVED"
I hv written a simple DB rule
i.e if the status is TO be approved and Approval.approval status is ready then
update data i.e. set status to "Approved"

Please suggest where i m goin wrong

Re: Change status "Approved"

Hi,

Did you add another action to check if the rule fired or not? If it does not fire, try to uncheck "evalute this rule when this field has been changed".

Re: Change status "Approved"

one more thing i could see the command like approval result...if i hv it then my problem can be solved i can copy the approval result in the custome field and excute or update data...

Re: Change status "Approved"

Hi Esc,

There are two cases in which your the approval.approval status can go to ready...
1. If the request is approved,
2. if the request is REJECTED.

You may need to re-think your rule before you go ahead...

Sorry, I am not giving a solution and also complicating your situation.
