Updating Existing Risk Severities

Apart from specifying the ID or the Source and Source ID columns to find an existing record, 4me is also able to match existing records using the Reference value.

This means that when an ID, Source and Source ID are not provided in the import file, and the given Reference value matches one of the Risk Serverities in the current Account, all the fields of that risk severity will be overwritten with the values provided in this import file. If the Source and Source ID columns are present in the import file, these fields will be cleared in the risk severity that matches the given Reference value.
