This attribute is populated a string data type and its value is populated as

    Entity: <Entity name>
  • During the first assessment creation for that entity and the attestation,

    Name of the entity xxxxx must have been yyyyy sometime back when the first assessment was created. However after that the entity name must have changed. But the assessments will refer to the same metric_type_group created earlier.

  • Click on the Metric Type Group reference in the related list records and change the name field.
