ResolutionWhen a CR (change request) activity is completed, watches will be opened for them.
For example if perforce->Check-in as been revoked, the person who is supposed to act on that activity will mark 'is complete'.
A database "watch" is opened on that item. What this means is that when the next collection happens, it is "watched" (checked) if perforce->check-in for the user whom it was revoked. If it does not see it, then the watch is closed. If the entitlement exists, the watch remains open.
