Error loading Risk Assessment data. The assessment campaign fails to Generate self-assessments properly in Archer for a large dataset ( > 1000) risks associated across all business units and business processes (> 50 processes). The self-assessment that is created during the assessment campaign is manipulated by a special application and a custom control (built and developed only for ORM). This custom control loads all the data related to that self-assessment in browser memory on a single browser page (including all the risks, controls and process data.) As this data grows, it is not possible to navigate and work with assessments for a very large dataset.
Archer assessment campaign creates self-assessments through a custom NODE in an advanced workflow. The script associated with this node that creates self-assessments is running under AWF and it is generally not designed to be a long-running process. It does not have the ability to divide work into smaller units of work or provide checkpoints to restart execution. This node is designed to create self-assessments sequentially without any ability to observe progress or perform retries. It can support a small set of processes, business units, and their associated risks. (Generally running for less than a few hours at the most)
This will require a future Enhancement to the RSA Archer Product
Split self-assessment creation across multiple AWF jobs by dividing top-level business processes into a smaller set.
Here’s the dataset threshold that we suggest users not to exceed when generating self-assessments for the following types:
CSA: 500 Controls + 1500 Findings
RCSA: 500 Risks + 5000 Controls
pRCSA: 7 Business Processes + 1074 Risks + 10000 Control
