Overview of configuring services in ITSI
This topic provides an overview of how to configure services in IT Service Intelligence (ITSI). For more information about ITSI services, see Overview of creating services in ITSI.
You must have the
write_itsi_service capability to configure services. The
itoa_team_admin roles have this capability by default.
Option 1: Configure a service manually
The following diagram shows the steps to manually configure an ITSI service:
The following table describes the steps to manually configure a service:
|Create new service||Either create a single service, import services from a CSV file, or import them from a Splunk search.||Required|
|Add entity rules||Entity rules let you dynamically filter KPI searches based on entity alias matches.||Optional|
|Add KPIs||A Key Performance Indicator (KPI) is a recurring saved search that returns the value of an IT performance metric, such as CPU load percentage, memory used percentage, response time, and so on.||Required|
|Add service dependencies||Adding service dependencies can help you detect if one service is having a negative impact on another service, and can be useful in performing root cause analysis.||Optional|
Option 2: Configure a service created from a service template
If you created a service from a service template, the entity rules and KPIs are populated for you. You still need to configure service dependencies. For more information, see Configure a service created from a service template in ITSI.
Option 3: Configure a service created from pre-built KPIs
If you created a service using pre-built KPIs from modules, the entity rules and KPIs are populated for you. For more information, see Define a source search from a base search and About ITSI modules.
