Create new Service Level Objectives (SLOs)

The Service Level Objective (SLO) is a target value or range of values for a service level that defines the minimum level of reliability. To create a new Service Level Objective, complete the following steps.

  1. Navigate to MENU > Services and find the service you want to modify.

  2. Click on the service to display its details.

  3. In the Service Level Objectives section, click CREATE NEW.

    Create new SLO

  4. In the SLI field, select the Service Level Indicator template you want to use. This is just a template, you can modify its parameters as needed for your environment. After selecting an SLI, its description is displayed under the name of the SLI. Click the Show YAML configuration icon next to the name of the SLI to display its YAML configuration. (If you want to create a new SLI using a custom resource, see Service Level Indicator template.)
