Deleting Risk Scenarios

  • Updated

Risk Scenarios can be permanently deleted, which is useful if you're looking to remove a test, or clean up previously archived scenarios.  While you can unarchive risk scenarios anytime, Deleting risk scenarios cannot be undone. If you are unsure if a risk should be deleted, it's recommend to first speak with your Auditor partner for advice.
