Notify requestor when request has been approved by owner RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a demand for sending a notification to the Requestor when the request is approved. Currently, MIM only notifies the requestor if the request is rejected by the owner (e.g. for joining a Security Group).

    I tried adding a Notification task to the "Owner Approval Workflow", but that made all requests fail (error: the workflow encountered an internal error during processing) so I had to restore the Owner Approval Workflow XOML to the default value.

    Any guidance on how I can make sure that requestors get an email when their request is approved?

  • You could setup an Action Workflow that contains a Notification activity. Then have the MPR that fired the AuthZ workflow also fire the Action workflow.
