Reprocess requests for an access package in entitlement management

As an access package manager, you can automatically retry a user’s request for access to an access package at any time by using the reprocess functionality. Reprocessing eliminates the need for users to repeat the access package request process if their access to resources is not successfully provisioned.


You can reprocess a request for up to 14 days from the time that the original request is completed. For requests that were completed more than 14 days ago, users will need to cancel and make new requests in MyAccess.

This article describes how to reprocess requests for an existing access package.


To use entitlement management and assign users to access packages, you must have one of the following licenses:

  • Microsoft Entra ID P2 or Microsoft Entra ID Governance
  • Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) E5 license
