Bug 1196384 - Can't modify a Service Request with a cloned 'approver' role

Fixed In Version:
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
In the previous version of CloudForms Management Engine, request approvals were tied to a role name. As a result, when creating a new role by copying "EvmRole-approver" without changes, the new role was unable to see the provisioning request to approve it. This issue was fixed when the code was updated to allow MiQ request approval by feature rather than the role name. Service Request with a cloned "approver" role can view and approve the provisioning requests as expected, in the latest version of CloudForms Management Engine.
