      ,
      Security
      , Stored Query, and
      Reference
      function accesses of this role are assigned with the View or Modify access levels.  For more information about function access, access level and roles, see the  Administering CA Service Desk Manager
      section.
    • Install “Status_Policy_Violations” option on the CA Service Desk Manager Server with “Reject” as its value to ensure that the condition attached to the status transition rules are validated correctly.
When CA Service Desk Manager users use the mobile application, they see that the status is updated even when the condition attached to the status transition rule fails. For example, consider a scenario when the “Status_Policy_Violations” is set to “Warn”, and the status transition rule states that there must be an assignee assigned to the Incident while updating from “OPEN” to “ACKNOWLEDGED”. In this scenario, the status is still updated to “ACKNOWLEDGED”, even if there is no assignee for the Incident.
To ensure that such an issue does not occur, install "Status_Policy_Violations" option on the CA SDM Server with "Reject" as its value.
