Delete the direct link to the control from the citation and link the control directly to a new authority document.

About this task

GRC redraws all the indirect links correctly within the new hierarchy.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to GRC > Authority Documents > Authority Documents.
  2. Open the Building Security record.
  3. In the Citations related list, select the S-01 record.
  4. In the citation record, select the Controls related list.
  5. Delete the Report all unlocked or broken doors control from the list, using the command in the Actions choice list.

    Breaking this link deletes all the calculated links GRC created between the authority document and the other entities in the hierarchy.

  6. Navigate to GRC > Authority Documents > Authority Documents.
  7. Create a new record called Datacenter Security.
  8. Make sure the record is Pertinent.
  9. Right-click in the header bar and select Save from the context menu.
  10. In the Controls related list, click Edit.
  11. Select the Report all unlocked or broken doors control and click Save.

    The system creates calculated links from the new authority document to the appropriate elements and displays the links in the related lists. The link between the authority document and the control is now a direct link and does not need to be calculated. Point at a value in the Connected by column to display the complete path in a pop-up window.

  12. To see the link between the risk and the control, navigate to GRC > Risks and select the Loss of proprietary data record.

    Notice that the value in the Connected by column in the Controls related list shows an indirect calculated link to the risk through the policy.

    The connection paths are as follows:
