Orphaned Workspaces

This article explains how to set up the Orphaned Workspaces policy in Syskit Point.

Syskit Point detects workspaces that don't have active owners, which helps you ensure there is always someone responsible for access and content management for your workspaces.

A predefined policy - Orphaned Workspaces - can be found 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)

  • Choose the severity level (2); this option is enabled by default

  • Enable Task Delegation (3) by clicking the toggle next to it and select your task delegation preferences:

    • Select between the 3 available processes (4):

      • Ask Specific Users to Assign New Owners; this is a 1-stage process, where selected users - Syskit Point Administrators and/or custom recipients - get a task to assign new owners

      • Ask Members to Suggest New Owners; this is a 2-stage process, where members can suggest new owners, and afterward, the selected users - Syskit Point Administrators and/or custom recipients - get a task to resolve the task base on the suggestions from owners; by default, this option is selected

      • Automatically Assing New Owners; if selected, Syskit Point will automatically assign the manager of the latest owner as a new owner

      • If the manager cannot be found, Syskit Point will escalate the task to the defined user

  • Click Save (5) once you are done with the policy configuration

Please note: The Orphaned Workspaces policy vulnerability is detected when there are 0 active owners assigned to a workspace.

If 1 owner is assigned to a workspace when resolving the Orphaned Workspaces vulnerability, Syskit Point will detect the Minimum Number of Owners policy vulnerability, as the default requirement is to have at least 2 owners per workspace.
