Approve or Reject a Changeset (Master Data Services)

Applies to: SQL Server - Windows only Azure SQL Managed Instance

A changeset is a collection of the pending changes on the master data. If the entity changes require administrator approval and a changeset is submitted for approval, you can review and then approve or reject the changeset.


  • You must have permission to access the Explorer functional area. For more information, see Functional Area Permissions (Master Data Services).

  • You must have administrator permission for the entity.

  • The entity changes must require administrator approval.

  • If the changeset status is pending, you can review and then approve or reject the changeset.
