Kenna Release Notes

April 2021

Feature Description

Risk Meters:

Dashboard Views and Faster Risk Meter Creation

Improved Risk Meter Drop down for Dashboard Views

Users now see enriched information in the Risk Meter drop down when creating and modifying Dashboard Views.

  • Risk Meter score
  • Risk Meter color coding
  • HRM hierarchy (first-level child and sibling Risk Meters)

It is also possible to add the child Risk Meters to Dashboard Views without adding parent Risk Meters.


Optimized Risk Meter Creation

Risk Meter creation speeds markedly improved in both the UI and API.


Improved Error Messaging

Improved Connector Run Error Messages

Users now see more comprehensive error messages designed to reduce frustration, improve resolution time, and enable self-resolution of issues in as many instances as possible without the need to contact support.

From the Connectors page or Home page, you see detailed messages that identify the application that is posting the error and alert the user to the specific problem. The message also provides clear solution steps and/or exit points.

Note: The error message indicates if/when users should reach out to support after following the suggested troubleshooting steps.

Bug Fixes:

Unassigned Roles Deletion and Search Queries Streamlined

Deleting Unassigned Role

Unassigned roles that returned an error message when attempting to delete can now be deleted.

Search Queries

Some search query results were impacted by the order of the query, which returned inconsistent results. Users will now find search queries return the same results regardless of the order of the query.

Hierarchical Risk Meters:


  • Users that have created child risk meters can export that data from the UI.
  • Use the same button in the front-end to export parent or child risk meters.

Note: Exporting children from the API is not a part of this release, but will be a part of the work to support HRM in the API.


Audit Logs:
