GRC 10 Role Import issue with assignment approver


We are running GRC 10 SP10.

I am able to successfully upload roles into GRC and provision the roles. I am currently set as the AC role owner. When I need to do a mass upload of roles using the template provided, all the roles upload. My ID is entered under assignment Approver [ Alphanumeric(12) ] on the spreadsheet. But when I go to role maintenance my user ID is unchecked under the owners tab.

How can I the assignment approver ID to be checked as the owner of the Role? Before I would do a few at time manually but doing 100's roles manually would be painful.

    Hi Joshua

    What about performing a Mass Update via NWBC?

    1. NWBC > Access Management > Role Mass Maintenance > Mass update
    2. Select the roles you imported
    3. Choose Criteria: Attributes Owners; Action = Add
    4. Add your name to the table for List of Approvers as both Owner and Assignment
    5. Schedule to update

    You might have to perform the Action for Update or perform two step of remove first and then add

    Using Colleen idea, you will be able to update all the roles already imported.

    But, if you want to define your user as a role owner from the import file, do not forget to put "Y" value in the column Assignment Approver.

    Collen and Benoit,

    Thanks, both of your answers helped me. The mass update helped with the roles that were already imported. And putting the Y in assignment approver helped when I do an initial upload. Thanks again for the help!
