Minimum Number of Owners

This article explains how to set up the Minimum Number of Owners policy in Syskit Point.

Syskit Point detects workspaces that don't have enough owners, which can make your workspaces less secure and difficult to manage.

A predefined policy - Minimum 2 Owners - is located on the Policies screen. Click the Edit (1) icon to view all defined options for the policy.

The Edit Policy dialog opens where you can:

  • Define the policy name (1)

  • Define the maximum number of allowed owners (2); this is set to 5 by default

  • Choose the severity level (3); this option is enabled by default

    • Enable Task Delegation (4) by clicking the toggle next to it and selecting your task delegation preferences: * Send reminder to reviewers (5) 3 work days before due date; this option is enabled by default * Choose what to do if owners don't resolve the policy vulnerability until the due date (6). The following options are available: * Reassign Task; when selected, you can define who will get the task - Manager of the Reviewer, Syskit Point Administrators, or custom recipients; this option is selected by default, and the tasks are reassigned to Manager of Reviewer * Automatically Remove Owners; if selected, Syskit Point will remove existing owners starting from users with the oldest sign-in date until the defined maximum number of owners is reached to comply with the policy * Click the checkbox to allow owners to accept risk for the policy (7)

  • Click Save (8) once you are done with the policy configuration.

Please note: By default, the Minimum Number of Owners Orphaned policy vulnerability is detected when there are less than 2 active owners assigned to a workspace. If there are no active owners assigned to a workspace, the Orphaned Workspaces vulnerability is detected instead.

If 1 owner is assigned to a workspace when resolving the Orphaned Workspaces vulnerability, Syskit Point will then detect the Minimum Number of Owners vulnerability.
