Suspending attestation

To suspend attestation you have two options.

  1. Disable the schedule assigned to the attestation policy.

    As long as the schedule is disabled, no new attestation cases will be generated. This applies to all attestation policies that have this schedule assigned to them.

    For more information, see Attestation schedules.

  2. Disable the attestation policy

    Once an attestation policy is disabled, no new attestation cases are generated. In addition, all associated attestation cases are deleted. To avoid loosing the attestation history in the process, you can configure how data changes are logged.

    For more information, see Disabling attestation policies.

  3. Disable the policy collection.

    Once a policy collection is disabled, all associated attestation policies are disabled.

    For more information, see Disabling policy collections.

Approval processes for attestation cases

All attestation procedures are subject to a defined approval process. During this approval process, authorized employees grant or deny approval for attestation objects. You can configure this approval process in various ways, and therefore customize it to meet your company policies.

You define approval policies and approval workflows for approval processes. Specify the approval workflows to apply to the attestation cases in the approval policies. Use approval workflows to find out, which employees in which order, can grant or deny attestation. An approval workflow can contain several approval levels and several approval steps. A special approval procedure is used to determine the attestors in each approval step.
