The Release Manager creates and modifies the structure of release activities by performing the following steps.

To plan release activities

  1. In the Service Manager console, open the Work Items workspace, and in the Work Items pane expand Release Management and then select Release Management.

  2. In the Work Items pane, select a view under Release Management that displays a release record that includes release activities that you want to add or modify activities for and then double-click the record to open it.

  3. Click the Activities tab to view the list of proposed changes and dependent activities they contain.

  4. Optionally, you can change the activities view by clicking either Diagram View or List View.

  5. Select a dependent change management activity and move it to the top of release management activity list or diagram. A dependent indicator appears both on the change and release management activities.
