TDX Approvers: Handle a Partial Approval

There may be times when you need to give partial approval of access or service to a Requestor. Depending on the situation, use one of these methods to communicate partial approval:

  • Send a comment to PAR through the ticket asking to remove certain options; then approve once those options are removed. 
  • Approve the request with a comment explaining what you are approving and what you are not approving.

Sending a Comment to PAR before Approving the Request

  1. Navigate to the Request ticket. 
  2. Scroll toward the bottom of the ticket to the Feed.
  3. Click Comment to the right of the Feed heading. A Comment box appears in the Feed area.

  4. Type what needs to be taken off of the request for you to be able to approve the request.
  5. Click into the Notify field above the Comment box and select T2 Provisioning and Requests (Responsible Group) from the menu that opens.
