States Policies
The States policy allows for a member to evolve through various states that are defined by you. States are useful when using configuration management on its own.
If you are using the integration with workflows and documents, there is no need to set configuration management states. The workflow provides transitions from one state to the next, provided each member is associated with a change package.
A newly created revision takes the first state in the list. The Demote and Promote commands must move along the list either to the previous state or the next state. If the States policy is not set, then promotion is not enabled.
