The session list

To view the session list, In Policy & Objects, go to Sessions > Session List. Different options will be available depending on the various states of the sessions (in progress, approved, etc.). When an ADOM is unlocked, only the comments and View Diff command are available.

The following options and information are available:

Approve

Approve the selected session. Enter comments in the Approve Session dialog box as required.

Reject

Reject the selected session. Enter comments in the Reject Session dialog box as required. A rejected session must be repaired before the next session in the list can be approved.

Discard

Discard the selected session. If a session is discarded, all later sessions are also discarded.

Repair

Repair the selected rejected session. A new session will be created and added to the top of the session list with the changes from the rejected session so they can be repaired as needed.

Revert

Revert back to the selected session, undoing all the changes made by later sessions. A new session will be created, added to the top of the session list, and automatically submitted for approval.
