Configuring service targets

If BMC Service Level Management is installed, you can use the goals for service targets that are shipped with BMC Service Request Management:

  • Service Request Total Time sets a time to complete the request after it is submitted.
  • Service Request Process Time sets a time to complete the request after it is approved.
  • Service Request Approval Time sets a time to approve the request after it is submitted.

You can override any of these settings by using the Configure Service Target Defaults form.

To configure service target defaults

  1. From the Application Administration Console, click the Custom Configuration tab.
  2. From the Applications Settings list, choose Service Request Management > Service Level Management > Service Target Defaults, and click Open.
  3. On the Configure Service Target Defaults form, customize the service targets by selecting a service target and entering information in the following optional fields:
