Manage risk profiles

Important: To create, edit, or delete a risk profile, you must have the Edit Risk Profile global permission.

In Release, you can create or edit risk profiles to assign different values to the risk assessors and apply the custom risk profiles to your templates and releases.

The Default risk profile is a risk profile guideline provided by Release containing the default risk scores for the risk assessors. You cannot edit the default risk profile and it is assigned to all templates and releases if no other custom risk profiles are specified. You can view the details of the Default risk profile, create an exact copy of it and edit the copied risk profile.

For more information on the risk score and the risk assessors, see Using risk awareness in Release.

To create a new risk profile:

  1. In the top navigation bar, click Settings.
  2. Click Risk profile.
  3. Click New risk profile.
  4. In the Risk profile name field, enter a name.
  5. Adjust the score for each risk assessor by dragging the slider, or disable it by clicking the Disable icon next to it.
  6. Click Save button. Note: You can not add new risk assessors. You can only enable risk assessors that were previously disabled.

Create risk profile

Note: You can assign a risk profile to a template or a release, or change the risk profile after a release has started. The risk score for those releases is recalculated using the new risk profile. If no custom risk profile is assigned during the release template creation or at start of the release, the default risk profile is assigned.
