Q: Where can we find out e-Signature doc (how to use) in Archer in SP2? Is the e-Signature available only in A&A solution? To e-Signature, is the A&A use-case 6.2 sufficient or does it have to be 6.6 (the latest A&A use-case)? Is it applicable to Archer Engage mobile devices?
A: E-signatures is a platform capability and can be used in any app that uses Advanced Workflow. There is no mobile application for Archer Engage specifically. The Archer mobile app does not support the e-signature capability at the moment.
Q: If we do not use an advanced workflow, can we use an e-signature functionality for the featured event-driven workflows?
A: The e-signature functionality is built on AWF, so you would need it. This cannot be used with event based workflow.
Q: For Training and Awareness, can a feature be added that will also require people to acknowledge the announcement and run a report of the acknowledgement just like we are able to do today with Training and Awareness?
A: Announcements will carry only the presentation 'prompt' mechanism from Training and Awareness. Training and Awareness reports will not have dedicated page like before, however the reports will be available under Master Report Listing.
Q: Will there be any support App for CSC CIS v8 (18 Controls)?
A: We will add this content to our Auth Sources library to all customers that are CIS subscribers soon.
Q: Is Silverlight is completely removed? Or are there still places which its being used?
A: We have been removing Silverlight from the product incrementally over the last few releases. The September release is planned to remove Silverlight from the last few pages that remain.
Q: Did I understand correctly that as of 6.9.2, Archer Administration will no longer involve Silverlight?
A: We have been removing Silverlight from the Archer incrementally for the past few releases. The remaining pages are planned to be Silverlight free in the next release 6.9 SP3 which is expected by mid-September 2021.
Q: Any updates on NIST Rev5 controls?
A: That is something we are currently working on but has not been released yet. Please join us for an upcoming roadmap for more updates on when that will be released.
Q: Is there a general page for App Pack working groups? I would like to participate.
A: Yes, there is a page for all Working Group registrations. Here is a link: https://community.rsa.com/t5/archer-roadmap-blog/join-an-archer-working-group-amp-see-upcoming-schedule/ba-p/568821. Please subscribe to that page for updates and notifications when new dates are added.
