  2. Click Edit next to Service Level Agreement on the Service Options pane.

  3. Enter a text version in Description field.
  4. (Optional) Click Add Trackable Metric, and select a value, and then complete fields as required. 
  5. (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.
  6. Click Save.
