You can use the job approval options in RME to perform change management using the steps outline below from the users guide.

Enabling Approval and Approving Jobs Using Job Approval

Resource Manager Essentials (RME) applications, such as NetConfig, Config Editor, Archive Management, and Software Management allow you to schedule jobs to perform their tasks. Job Approval allows you to require that one of a group of users designated as job Approvers approves each job before it can run.

This section contains:

Job Approval Workflow

Job Management

Job Approval sends job requests through e-mail to users on a job's Approver list. If none of the Approvers approve the job before its scheduled run time, or if an Approver rejects the job, the job is moved to the rejected state and will not run.

When Job Approval is enabled, applications that use it, require you to schedule the job to run in the future, rather than immediately. Job approval cannot be enabled for jobs that run immediately.

Re: LMS 3.2 - Change Management

Thanks, will give it a go.

One other questions, when changes are done on the actual device, how does, if at all, LMS pick this up? Does it create another entry or does edit the existing device entry details and update?
