In the process of the approval of the entitlements, a control point moves through various states.
At any given time, a control point can be in any of the following states in the entitlements system:
No Review Configured
Indicates that the control point has no review cycle that is associated with it.
No Review Configured is the default status of the control point, when an asset is marked as the control point.
A control point cannot be monitored for its entitlements in the approval workflow unless a review cycle is associated with it.
Review Start Awaited
Indicates that the review cycle is associated with a control point and the review start date is awaited.
The review cycle start depends on the date that you indicate in the review cycle settings.
Indicates that the review cycle for the control point has started.
The review cycle starts after the daily approval job runs on the review cycle start date.
Status changes from Review Start Awaited to Review Started when the review cycle starts.
Entitlement Import Required
Indicates that the entitlements should be imported before the approval period begins.
The control point status changes to the Entitlement Import Required in the following cases:
The status changes from Review Started to Entitlements Import Required according to the review cycle setting.
In the review cycle setting, you mention the number of days before the approval start when you want to import the entitlements.
The status changes from Request For Change to Entitlement Import Required when the entitlements administrator requests for the approval of control point after the entitlements are changed according to the change requests.
Entitlement Import Pending
Indicates that the entitlement import is in progress.
Status changes from Entitlement Import Required to Entitlement Import Pending.
Sometimes, in case of system failure during the entitlement import, control points are left in the Entitlement Import Pending status even after the system is up. You must revert the status to the Entitlement Import Required status to re-import the entitlements of these control points. To revert the status to the Entitlement Import Required status, go to Settings > General > Entitlements> Revert Import Pending Control Point Status. You cannot revert the status if another entitlement import job is running.
The system runs an approval job on a daily basis. The approval job changes the status to Entitlement Import Pending.
Approval Start Awaited
Indicates that the approval period for the control points is yet to start after Entitlement Import.
Request for Approval
Indicates that the request for approval is sent to the data owner of the control points.
The control point status changes to the Request for Approval in the following cases:
The status changes from Approval Start Awaited to Request for Approval when the approval starts.
The status changes from Entitlement Import Required to Request for Approval when the entitlement import is complete. This is in case of the re-importing of entitlements after the implementation of the change requests.
Request for Change
Indicates that the data owner has requested changes in the entitlements of the control points.
Status changes from Request for Approval to Request for Change.
Indicates that the data owner has approved the entitlements of the control points.
