Mitigating controls assigned to the function definitions to be tested are automatically copied to rules about SAP functions. Conditions:
- Active rules are assigned to a functional area and a department.
- The function definitions to be tested are assigned to the same functional area and to the variable set associated with the same department.
Violation of regulatory requirements can harbor different risks for companies. To evaluate these risks, you can apply risk indexes to SAP functions. These risk indexes provide information about the risk involved for the company if this particular SAP function is violated. Once the risks have been identified and evaluated, mitigating controls can be implemented.
Mitigating controls are independent on One Identity Manager’s functionality. They are not monitored through One Identity Manager.
Mitigating controls describe controls that are implemented if an SAP function was violated. The next calculation should not find any invalid authorizations for this SAP function once the controls have been applied.
To edit mitigating controls
- In the Designer, set the QER | CalculateRiskIndex configuration parameter and compile the database.
If you disable the configuration parameter at a later date, model components and scripts that are not longer required, are disabled. SQL procedures and triggers are still carried out. For more information about the behavior of preprocessor relevant configuration parameters and conditional compiling, see the One Identity Manager Configuration Guide.
For more information about risk mitigation controls, see the One Identity Manager Risk Assessment Administration Guide.
