Release Custom Rules

The custom rules help you to enforce the organization’s compliance while processing a release. Using these rules you can ensure that any change in the release attributes is supported by proper comments or notes. For example, a release should not move to the approved state if there is no manager assigned to the release. Similarly, you can use custom rules to enforce the approval workflows and closing tasks to close a release.

To view the Release Custom Rules page, navigate to Admin > Release Management > Release Custom Rules.
