About this task

You can create or update the scoring profile with new indicators and associate it with the business application. You can also use the same indicators within many scoring profiles, which generate indicator scores unique to that scoring profile.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to Application Portfolio Management > Administration > Scoring Profiles.
  2. Click New.
  3. On the form, fill in the fields.
    Table 1. Scoring Profile form
    Field Description
    Name Name of the application profile.
    Readjust Weightage Check box to adjust the weightage proportionately among the relevant indicators of the business application.
    Description Description of the application profile.
    CI Class Configuration item type for which the score is generated.

    Readjust Weightage is an option that you can use to adjust the weights among the relevant indicators. For example, a business application internal to an organization may not require web security. Whereas, web security as an indicator is still listed in the profile indicators for the business application. However, the indicator has no value to it as it is not relevant to that business application. In such a case, you can readjust the weightage among the relevant indicators by setting the Readjust Weightage flag to true. If there are three indicators I1, I2, and I3 with weightages of 20%, 40%, and 40%, respectively. If I2 is not relevant for BA1, then the weights can be readjusted between I1 (20/(20+40)) and I3 (40/(20+40)) as 33.3% and 66.6%, respectively. Readjusting weights can be done at the scoring profile level by setting the Readjust Weightage flag to true.

  4. Right-click the form header and click Save.

    After creating a score profile, you must associate a profile indicator to the score profile.

  5. In the Application Profile Indicators related list, add indicators.
    1. Click New.
    2. On the form, fill in the fields.
      Table 2. Application Profile Indicator form
      Field Description
      Profile Name of the application profile.
      Indicator Name of the application indicator.
      Evaluate within Application Scoring Profile Select the check box to consider the business applications that are tied to the selected scoring profile for evaluation of scores.

      Clearing the check box entails evaluation of all business applications within the enterprise or across all scoring profiles.

      Domain The domain to which this indicator belongs.
      Used in CI score calculation Select the check box to activate use of the application indicator for calculating the application score.
      Weightage Numeral for the indicator.

      Weightage provided in the application score profile for an indicator contributes to the total score of the application.

    3. Click Submit.

What to do next

Regenerate scores: Click the Regenerate scores button to regenerate the scores of all the indicators attached to the scoring profile. This action deletes the existing scores and generates new scores instead of just updating the existing scores. Therefore, the scores of all the business applications that are associated to this scoring profile are also recalculated.

You can schedule a job to calculate application scores periodically.
