Remediations and Approvals

Remediation cases are different than approvals. Approvals take place before the operation is completed. Approvals can stop the action from happening. This is great, but it may lead to delays - and that can be critical in emergency situations. And there are situations where we simply cannot stop the action. For example if a manager is fired immediately because of gross misconduct we cannot stop deprovisioning because there is organizational unit that will suddenly have zero managers. And approvals cannot be used for events that have already happened and midPoint just discovered them, such as discovery of an orphaned account. On the other hand, remediation cases takes place post-fact. Remediation cases do not stop operation from happening and they can be used also for events that already took place. The meaning of remediation case is to correct a situation that is wrong.
