Message Group Definition record

HPE Service Manager Change Management uses message groups to identify the members of a work group, also known as a Message group. Message groups include two types:

  • Members receive work messages sent to the group, such as event and alert messages. For example, notifying members about the progress of requests and tasks that their group is responsible for managing. Members automatically act as reviewers.
  • Approvers approve requests for the group. Approvers usually receive notifications when a request is awaiting their approval.

Approvers are not automatically reviewers. If an approver must receive all group notifications, whether related to work activities or to approvals, make sure to add them to both the Members list and to the Approvers list.

The Message Group Definition record stores the login IDs of all members and approvers who receive notifications and messages during a change project.
