Create relationships between profile classes using the GRC workbench

Managers create relationships between profile classes using the GRC workbench to build out the dependency map and better understand how profiles relate to one another.

Before you begin

Role required: sn_grc.manager

Create profile class using the GRC workbench, before creating relationships between profile classes.

Profile classes can roll up to each other, leading to the development of the dependency model.

Figure 1. Profile classes dependency model
graphic explains how a project risk can roll up to a business service and the business service can roll up to a department. Based on the dependency model, the project risk can roll all the way up to the department.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to https://myCompany.service-now.com/$grc_workbench.do.
  2. Select the Model Setup tab at the top, and select the Dependency Model tab below.
  3. If needed, create profile classes.
  4. Do one of the following actions:
    OptionDescription
    If there are no relationships between profile classes Drag a profile class from the left to the center and drop it.
    If there are relationships between profile classes Drag additional profile classes from the list on the left and drop them on the top or bottom of any profile class in the tree.
    Note: Dragging to the top of a profile class makes the target profile class roll up to the class that is dropped. Dragging to the bottom of a profile class makes the class that is being dropped roll up to the target class.
    Note: As long as you remain on the GRC workbench, click Undo after creating a relationship between profile classes to roll back the change. Leaving the GRC Workbench causes the undo history to be lost.

What to do next

After modeling out profiles, define the risks in your organization:After generating risks, Relate risks to each other.
