RMA Authorisation Statuses

Purpose

Each authorisation has a status that restricts the actions that you can perform on it. The status can also indicate what to do to activate it.

The actions also include the Approve command that is used to implement the 4-eyes principle.
The RMA service supports the following types of statuses:
  • external status
  • preparation status
  • combination status

External statuses

An External Status identifies the state of an active authorisation. External statuses are known to both you and your correspondent.
Important
An Authorisation to Receive is inactive until it is stored with an external status.
The RMA service supports the following external statuses:
Status
Description
Authorisation to Receive
Authorisation to Send
Enabled
Indicates that an authorisation is active.
Activating an authorisation means that messages can be transmitted between you and your correspondent.
Yes
Yes
Revoked
Indicates that an authorisation has been revoked.
Revoking an authorisation means that you no longer allow your correspondent to send you messages.
Yes
Yes
Rejected
Indicates that an authorisation has been rejected.
Rejecting an authorisation means that you are refusing the permission to send messages to a correspondent.
Yes
Yes
Deleted
Indicates that an authorisation has been deleted.
Deleting an authorisation means that you are rejecting an active authorisation.
No
Yes

Preparation statuses

A preparation status identifies the state of a new authorisation or a new version of an authorisation. The new version of the authorisation remains inactive pending activation or deletion. Only you will be aware of the preparation status.
Therefore, when you run a command that results in an authorisation having a preparation status, your correspondent will be unaware of its preparation status.
The Relationship Management application supports the following preparation statuses:
Status
Indicates that
Authorisation to Receive
Authorisation to Send
Draft
A user has created an authorisation or a new version of an authorisation and has saved it for subsequent editing.
Yes
No
Draft Disapproved 
A user disapproved the creation or modification of a new, and inactive, Authorisation to Receive.
Yes
No
Pending Accept
You have received an Authorisation to Send from a correspondent, and no operator has accepted or rejected it yet.
No
Yes
Pending Accept Approval 
A user needs another user to approve the acceptance of an Authorisation to Send.
No
Yes
Pending Approval 
A user needs another user to approve a new Authorisation to Receive, that is, to make it active.
Yes
No
Pending Delete Approval 
A user needs another user to approve the deletion of an Authorisation to Send.
No
Yes
Pending Reject Approval 
A user needs another user to approve the rejection of an Authorisation to Send.
No
Yes
Pending Reject Confirmation
You have not yet confirmed that your correspondent has rejected an authorisation.
Note: If your correspondent rejects an authorisation, then the Relationship Management application stores your Authorisation to Receive with this status.
Yes
No
Pending Revoke Approval 
A user needs another user to approve the revocation of an Authorisation to Receive.
Yes
No
Pending Revoke Confirmation
You have not yet confirmed that your correspondent has revoked an authorisation.
Note: If your correspondent revokes an authorisation, then the Relationship Management application stores your Authorisation to Send with this status.
No
Yes
(1) The Relationship Management application provides these additional preparation statuses for actions that are awaiting approval (4-eyes principle).

Combination statuses

A combination Status identifies the external status of an active authorisation and the preparation status of the new version of the authorisation.
Combination statuses have the format: "<External Status>/<Preparation Status>".
For example, if you create a version of an active authorisation that has the status "Enabled" and save the new version as a draft, then the authorisation is saved with the status, "Enabled/Draft". In this case, your correspondent is unaware that the authorisation has a preparation status," Draft".
