Issue Delegation allows Issues to be delegated to other users for remediation to reduce the load on the Administrator to resolve all issues and delegate issues to be remediated to users such as data-owners who have more context about the data, access, or the user associated with an issue.

Issues can be assigned to users, termed as Assignees in the Issue Details section. Assignees can be Admins, Issue Analysts, Data Owners, or anyone who has access to the Issues tab in Secure and Govern.

Additionally, for Egnyte content sources, Issues can also be assigned to End-Users whose actions triggered an issue or to Owners of folders which are flagged for issues such as Open Access.

It is possible to delegate issues to the following users:

  • S&G admin users.
  • S&G users who have access to this particular issue.
  • Affected users, if an issue is user related (Suspicious Login, Probable Ransomware, Inactive User, Unusual Access).
  • File/Folder owners in the content source, if an issue is file/folder related (Public Link, Individual Permission, Open Access, External Sharing).
  • Data owners defined in S&G, if an issue is file/folder related (Public Link, Individual Permission, Open Access, External Sharing).
