Risk Assessment Data updates via the Field Mappings should be strictly prohibited. We should never allow users to update the xrefs between the assessment application with the field mapping process.

Two issues:

  1. The default as seen in the screenshot needs to be removed from the node attributes as out of box matches.
  2. The availability to map anything to the Risk Assessment Data xref should be prohibited. 

Create Self-Assessments node in WP has 3 mapping attributes associated to the node. Fields that should be protected by the system, and no mapping updates into the target (BPAD, RAD, or CAD) should be allowed in the following fields:


  • BPAD Belongs to Assessment BU field
  • Related Self-Assessment xref
  • Risk Assessment Data xref


  • Mitigating Control Assessment Data xref field.
  • Related Business Processes Assessment Data xref field
  • Related RCSA Self-Assessment


  • Related CSA Self-Assessment xref
  • Related Risk Assessment Data xref

*All calculated fields, IR fields, system Tracking IDs, etc. should also be removed from the Target dropdown list. Fields that cannot be updated via a similar action in Feeds or WebAPI calls, should be excluded from the target list availability.
