Setting service level agreements
Service catalog administrators and internal service supplier administrators can configure service level agreements (SLAs) for a service. The SLA section is where you include optional information to capture the terms of service agreed upon by an organization and the service supplier who provides the service. SLAs contain text, documents, and individually assigned metrics that can be tracked and displayed in reports.
Before you begin
Create the service, as described in Adding and updating services.
To add Service Level Agreement (SLA) information
- In BMC Digital Workplace Catalog, go to Services > Services, and open a service.
- Click Edit next to Service Level Agreement on the Service Options pane.
- Enter a text version in Description field.
- (Optional) Click Add Trackable Metric, and select a value, and then complete fields as required.
- (Optional) If required according to your legal statement, attach a digital copy of the SLA as a file, or provide a link to an online SLA copy.
- Click Save.
