Approval Tasks

When an application or project request or pipeline gate is in the Pending Approval status, a defined person or persons must approve the request before it is submitted for execution. In such cases, the approving persons are notified via email that they have a pending approval task. These users will access the Approval Tasks screen in FlexDeploy by selecting Tasks -> Approval Tasks from the menu.

FlexDeploy Administrators will see all approval tasks (even if they are not assigned to their group) and approve/reject all tasks.

Search option filters tasks by

  • Environment Name
  • Snapshot Name
  • Application or Project Path
  • Requester user name
  • Requester name
  • Workflow Request Id
  • Folder Request Id
  • Pipeline Stage Gate Execution Id
  • Build or Deploy FlexFields



To approve a request, select the corresponding task and click the Approve or Thumbs up button. To reject a request, select the corresponding task and click the Reject button.

Note regarding External Approval Tasks

Approval tasks generated from External Approvals are generally not intended to be approved through FlexDeploy. They are intended to be managed within the external system itself. However, the tasks can be approved here in the event that the linkage is somehow broken with the external system.  Note that approving the task in FlexDeploy will leave the task in the external system as pending approval.
