You have to configure Workflow for Risk Management in Access Control.

The requirement is process flow is : see the diagram.

  1. Step A1 à The user creates the Risk ID in ARA and submits the request for approval(Users are GRC functional/Admin/Approvers Users not End users)
  1. Step B1 to B3 à The Risk owner receives the e-mail notification to approve the request. The Risk Owner can click on the Link provided in the e-mail notification or alternatively, can login to the GRC Inbox and can approve or reject the request

Approval of the request will make the new or updated Risk ID available in the Risk ID library. The Rejection of the Request will end the process without saving the Risk ID. E-mail notification is sent to the Requestor upon approval or rejection of the Request.

To achieve this you need to Enable workflow and maintain parameters and pre requisite.


First : Maintain Risk Owners for Risk ID.

First : Maintain Risk Owners for Risk ID.

Go to NWBC>SETUP> Access Rule Maintenance>Access Risk> Select Risk > Risk Owner Tab.

Parameter 1063:

The application allows users to create and modify risks.

Set the value to YES to require the application to send an approval workflow item to the Risk Owner (or to any alternate workflow agent you set) for approval.

The screen displays a Submit button.

If this parameter is set to Yes, you must also configure parameters 1101, 1102, 1103, and 1110.

Parameter 1101:

You maintain the list of available request types in the Customizing activity Define Request Type under Governance, Risk, and Compliance > Access Control > User Provisioning.

This parameter is only valid if parameter 1063 is set to Yes.

Parameter 1102:

You maintain the list of available request types in the Customizing activity Define Request Type under Governance, Risk, and Compliance > Access Control > User Provisioning.

This parameter is only valid if parameter 1063 is set to Yes

Parameter 1103:

You maintain the list of available request types in the Customizing activity Define Request Type under Governance, Risk, and Compliance > Access Control > User Provisioning.

This parameter is only valid if parameter 1063 is set to Yes.

Here we have used standard Initiator, and default path and standard approver.

/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/mohana_778701.png

I have selected all approver ..for thos risk id who has more than 1 risk owners and all need to approve.

you can keep it as anyone for only 1 approver to approve


Save it.

Check for Route mapping.

Save and activate to generate version.

Now whenever a risk is modified or created/deleted it will go for approval of risk owner.
