TECR Workflow


TECR Workflow allows you to:

  • Create a sequence of TECR Statuses for each TECR Type, from an initial status to an end status.
  • Assign the privilege of setting that status to User Roles (Permission Roles) or User Groups.

If workflows are turned off, all TECR Statuses will appear in the TECR Status drop-down menus in Environment Requests. If workflows are turned on, only the TECR Statuses set for that TECR Type or the default TECR Status will appear.


To be able to customize the TECR Status, you must have ‘Access Customizations’ User Permission.
Settings  > Customization > Environments > TECR Status

Create a Workflow

To create a workflow for a TECR Type:

  1. Navigate to the ‘Customization’ page.

Set Status Order Priority

Set the order priority of the Status in the workflow or Status field by entering a number in the bottom right corner box:

  • Statuses must have an order priority number to appear in the workflow or the Status field.
  • Numbers must be positive integers, for example, 1, 2, 3. Zero is also acceptable.
