Turning off algorithms and algorithm groups that are not relevant reduces unnecessary processing and focuses the report results on your actual needs. For example, some of the reports test for compatibility with features that are optional. If your enterprise does not use (or plan to use) any of the optional features, you can turn off the associated algorithms to speed analysis.
The standard RAG status of an application is determined by the algorithms built into the report. However, sometimes you might want to raise an amber status to red or lower it to green, depending on the specific needs of your organization. By default, the custom RAG is the same as the standard RAG.
Just as sometimes you may want to customize the RAGs, you may sometimes also want to customize an algorithm's remediation actions – for example, to require additional testing.
Notice that changing the remediation action sometimes automatically changes the action RAG (also known as the remediation RAG). The action RAG provides an indication of the application’s RAG status after the remediation action has been implemented.
The Algorithm Version History displays the algorithm's version history, including whether it was installed by the latest upgrade to AppDNA and whether it has been used in an analysis.
