Viewing Service Health in Self Service
The Service Health tile in Self Service enables clients to view the health of each business service at a glance. These services are configured by the system administrator and linked with the client, client's account, or both. By default, on the Service Health tile, all available services are displayed. Your system administrator, change manager, or staff member must first create a service outage before you can view it on the Service Health tile in Self Service.
- The Current tab displays all the services with their current status. The start date of all these services is less than the viewing date, that is, all the services for which the outage is going on are displayed on this tab.
- The Future tab displays all services that have a planned maintenance occurring later than the viewing date.
Services whose status is Available, are not displayed on the Future tab. A maximum of 250 services are displayed as tiles. The services can be filtered as per their outage status.
You can also search for services by service name. The search results display all services containing the search string in the service name. Search is performed only on services that are displayed in Service Health.
Each tile in Service Health represents a service with its name and description. The current outage status of the service is indicated by an icon. A specific icon and color is used to indicate the outage status of a service.

The number of days for which the history is saved for a service depends on the configuration set by the system administrator.
