You may want to monitor your controls differently from the way Drata has mapped controls and tests, additionally you may want to monitor your custom controls with tests. Drata gives you the flexibility to manage your controls and tests the way you need by manually mapping (and un-mapping) any test to any control (custom or DCF).

BEFORE DIVING IN

This feature is included in specific packages, please contact your CSM to learn more.

Only account administrators or information security leads have access to this functionality within Drata.

HERE'S HOW

You can manually map tests to controls from the following two places in the application: (1) 'Control Details' drawer and (2) 'Test Details' drawer.

Control Details Drawer

From the Controls page, select a control to open the 'Control Details' drawer and scroll down to the 'Automated Testing' section.

Click the 'Map Tests' button to launch a modal of all automated tests.

You can search for tests and select one or multiple tests to map to the control.

Once a test is mapped, it will display in the drawer.

You can un-map tests one-by-one by clicking on the link icon.

Test Details Drawer

From the Monitoring page, select a test to open the 'Test Details' drawer and scroll down to the 'Mapped Controls' section.

Click the 'Map Controls' button and a modal will open.

You will see a list of in scope custom and DCF controls. You can search for controls and select one or multiple controls to map to the test.

If you don't see a control in the list, you might need to go to the 'Out of Scope' view on the Controls page and mark that control in scope.

Once a control is mapped, it will display in the drawer. You can un-map controls one-by-one by clicking on the link icon.
