Delegating a control set for review

When you need assistance from a subject matter expert, you can choose the AWS account that you want to help you, and then delegate a control set to them for review.

You can use either of the following procedures to delegate a control set.

To delegate a control set from the assessment page

  1. Open the AWS Audit Manager console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/auditmanager/home.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Assessments.

  3. Select the name of the assessment that contains the control set that you want to delegate.

  4. From the assessment page, choose the Controls tab. This displays the control status summary and the list of controls in the assessment.

  5. Select a control set and choose Delegate control set.

  6. Under Delegate selection, a list of users and roles is displayed. Choose a user or role, or use the search bar to look for one.

  7. Under Delegation details, review the control set name and the assessment name.

  8. (Optional) Under Comments, add a comment with instructions to help the delegate fulfill their review task. Don't include any sensitive information in your comment.

  9. Choose Delegate control set.

  10. A green success banner confirms the successful delegation of the control set. Choose View delegation to see the delegation request. You can also view your delegations at any time by choosing Delegations in the left navigation pane of the AWS Audit Manager console.
