Creating Services

Overview

When you create a service, you provide a name and description, and add policies.

Optionally, you can select specific sites, groups, and devices to include in the service, or to exclude from the service. Although this practice is not recommended, it may be necessary for fringe cases. The specific inclusions or exclusions that you configure for a service override your service delivery model. For example, if you include the service in a service plan, and that service plan is not applied to a site, but you have included that site at the service level, then the service is applied to the site.

To create a service
  1. In Service Center, click Configuration > Services.
  2. Click New.
  3. Provide a name and description for the service.
    To add policies to the service:
  4. In the Policies area, click Add.
  5. From the list, select the type of policy you want to add, and then click Add.
    A list of policies appears, filtered by the type of policy you selected in the previous step.
  6. Select the check box beside each policy you want to add to the service.
  7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 for each policy type that you want to add until you have finished adding policies to the service.
  8. Click OK.

You can also create a service from the Configuration > Service Plans page. Creating services this way is helpful when you are building service plans and you see a need for a new service, and you do not want to leave the Service Plans page.
