Useful information regarding the impacts on Lifecycle field

Lifecycles have a chronological order, Impacts management takes this into consideration by presenting default values when setting a new phase.

  • if an application does not have a defined lifecycle, then it will be recommended: Active
  • if an application has a defined lifecycle, it will be recommended: End of life

This is to streamline the update of these impacts, although they can be modified for other phases as well.
However, if it is modified by a phase prior to the current one, not only this one will be impacted but also the phases that follow it, in order to give consistency to the chronological order of the lifecycle field.
