RiskTree reports are created using the Processor. This allows you to assess the risks of one or more RiskTrees in a single report. The Processor is found under the Prioritize and Report menu at the top of the screen. The information below is about creating a new report; other help pages provide information on loading existing reports and updating reports.

Specifying report options

In order to create a report, as a minimum you must specify the RiskTree files to be used. These are selected by clicking on the grey Choose Files button. You can select multiple files in the file chooser dialogue box than opens. Once you have chosen the files in this dialogue box, they will be listed in a box on the Processor screen, and the background of the RiskTrees section will change to green.

If you have previously been working on a RiskTree in the Designer, the Processor will detect this. It will tell you the name of the tree (from the project title), and give you the option to use this tree. You can generate the report from this tree alone, or include additional files as well by using the file chooser.

Advanced options

These allow you to configure your report in more detail. Click on the grey bar to view the options:


This lets you select a file containing information on different attacker type. The threat information file is created using the Threat Manager, accessible from the Tools menu.


This lets you include a custom configuration file, which is required if you want to change the names or colours of the risk levels, or the number of risk levels to use. The configuration file is created using the Config Creator, accessible from the Tools menu. If you load a single RiskTree file that has been created using a custom configuration, this will be used for the risk calculation. If multiple RiskTrees are loaded then the default risk bands will be used; if a separate config file is loaded then this will be used for the risk band information.

Creating the report

Once you have set the parameters for your RiskTree report, click on the button. There will be a short delay whilst the data are processed and the report is generated; progress will be shown by a striped blue progress bar. When the report is complete, the report parameters will fade out and be replaced by the tabulated report. If you need to generate a new report without saving the existing report, click on the button at the top of the page.
