  3. Click on the Administration tab.
  4. If the table is empty, click 2. Create Filter.
    The process of creating filters for the form selected is started. After the process is completed, you should see 20 rows, the column Rule Build Status should have the value Built Successfully for all rows.
  5. Submit a test ticket and confirm the service target measurement starts.

  1. Select the record whose Rule Build Status column is set to Could not be built.
  2. Click View.
  3. Copy all the content from the Build Messages field and contact BMC support.

2Check if Service Level Management Data Sources filters are visible in Developer Studio.

Perform the following steps:

  3. Search for zSLMGen:<module name> in both object types.
    Module name is a suffix that changes as per the module. For example, zSLMGen:HPD for incident, zSLMGen:CHG for change, zSLMGen:WOI for work order, zSLMGen:AST for asset, and so on.
  4. Submit a test ticket and confirm the service target measurement starts.
