The primary purpose of the Revision case type is to initiate the process of changing business rules in your application. This case type covers all aspects of the revision life cycle. A revision can have one or more change requests associated with it. You can modify the stages, steps, processes, or assignments that are part of the Revision case type to make it simpler or more complex, depending on the business needs.

The primary path in the Revision case type is represented by the following stages:

Add Change Request Final Create one or more change requests through the designated activity.
